About

Make Room India is an Indian-European ecosystem where - Leaders build innovative solutions;

We are a social change ecosystem that connects India and Europe.
Whilst Europe has the leading entrepreneurship ecosystem in the world, India has the fastest growing ecosystem
and we intend to harness the combined power of both.

In March, 2016 European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker, Council of Europe President Donald Tusk and Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi reconfirmed their commitment to jointly strengthen the Strategic Partnership between European Union and India. The partnership was established to strengthen the collaboration between European Union and India in wide range of areas for cooperation such as foreign and security policy, trade and investment, economy, global issues as well as people to people contacts and human rights.
