India, and Asia as a whole has experienced its first wave of rapid economic transformation. We have tapped into the greatest resource that we had - skilled labour at a significantly lower cost. But with rising labour costs, how can we sustain this economic growth? That is the dilemma and our big question.
Entrepreneurs drive the economy. It is the grand visions and resourcefulness of an entrepreneur that utilizes the society to the maximum, creates opportunities and pushes technology to its limits to create a better lifestyle - be it an enterprise or an end-consumer. Proto.in is a platform derived to support, help and nurture such visionaries.
We are going one step forward this time, and bringing in companies from around India, to complement the specialized skills in these regions - the hardware manufacturing capabilities of China, the exposure to advanced mobile communications in Singapore, Malaysia and Japan, and the low cost manufacturing capability of Taiwan, mixed with the engineering leadership of Korea and Japan, will add a lot of ammunition to the IT strength that India carries. The American continent and Europe has been enjoying the benefit of cross border collaboration for quite sometime and the result is quite evident. We believe we can create and nurture such an ecosystem via Proto.in.
India and Asia, as a whole has yet to define its place in this global economy. Are we a country which is emerging with values and strength to challenge the nations as a whole? Will we be able to create an culture of cross-border collaboration and involve ourselves in the interchange of ideas beyond the lines of tradition, language and identify to push forward, providing and strengthening the global economy by contributing to it - in par with any other nation in the world?
This is a time in history, as the youth are empowered, and entrepreneurial activities are on the rise, that we even dare to make that definition. We make those simple definitions in Proto.in. When the pages of history finally turn, and look at this time as the turning point of this nation's economy, and in repositioning the status of the asian community globally, We are keen to make this nation a key part of that change. It's certainly the beginning of a revolution, where history is rekindled for the generation to come.
