Investment Strategy
India is rapidly digitising. Digitisation is an invaluable tool in addressing the development needs of the country faster, better and cheaper. Our goal is to enable every Indian to feel empowered and safe when she is online, reap benefits from technology, and face minimal harm from its risks. For this, we need to collectively create a thriving and well-governed digital and data economy. We also need the widespread adoption of responsible tech practices: inclusion, privacy, security, transparency and good governance.
