What we offer in return is the broadest sandbox of multiple B2B and B2C industries from Adani to multiple tech companies in Israel. It is a classic supply demand match between two nations that have always shared very strong bonds".
"The Adani-llA collaboration will also help to open various channels for the latest technologies from Israel to enter India and accelerate the digitization of several other organizations," Karan Adani added.
Dror Bin, CEO, Israel Innovation Authority said, "The Adani Group, one of India's largest conglomerates, is a partner of choice for any Israeli startup looking to tap into the world's fastest growing economy - India. With this MoU, the Israel Innovation Authority will provide Israeli companies a unique opportunity to co- develop, pilot and scale-up innovative technologies in collaboration with Adani's diverse businesses in the fields of renewable energy, Al, logistics and more".
The Adani Group's broader strategy is to digitally integrate its current and future businesses by linking its data centres through a network of submarine and terrestrial cables, industrial level 5G connectivity, building the largest industrial operations cloud in the world, developing the super app to offer a suite of services across its consumer base of 400 million, and establishing a world-class Al centre of excellence, the company said.
This tie-up between Adani Enterprises and IIA is expected to further each other's capabilities, technology leadership, resources and worldwide presence.
Under the provisions of Israeli industrial laws and policies that encourage research, development and technological innovation, the Adani Group will screen and select Israeli start-ups and other innovation companies developing new and exciting solutions in the tech space, the company said.
Approved projects will then be assisted by the Adani Group and supported by the Israel Innovation Authority, it added.
