The Manchester of the East, as it is touted for its thriving textile industry, this pulsing metropolis has endured through several epochs in the history of India. Ahmedabad, once a thriving trading hub under the rule of the Mughal Empire, became one of the British East India Company’s strategic military strongholds during the days of colonialism. Most importantly, however, it gained recognition as one of the hotbeds of political activity during the Indian Independence movement, following the establishment of an ashram on the banks of the city’s Sabarmati River, by none other than the Father of the Nation himself – Mahatma Gandhi.
While some might complain that modern-day Ahmedabad has lost its appeal, the city certainly embodies the spirit of India’s phenomenal economic and industrial growth. Long have the locals of Gujarat been known for their enterprising nature, and sharp business acumen, and thanks to active stimulation of the local economy by the state government, Ahmedabad is now one of India’s leading destinations for both, industry, and education.The local flavour is evident in the tempting culinary offerings you can find in the crowded bazaars in the old city, and in the raucous celebrations during the major festive seasons in the state.
Budding entrepreneurs will find no lack of talented manpower in this city, which is home to a number of prominent national technological and management institutes. There are also a number of local accelerators, an active start-up community that connects start-ups with funding opportunities, and offers them support through mentorship programs.
