The Story So Far

It is a well known narrative. Certain ideas find believers, people who take them to the masses ensuring a better quality of life. The believers need not be the biggest but devoted to the concept with the strongest passion and conviction. Smartron found its inception in a thought. The thought became a burning desire to build a strong “product” ecosystem in India that can compete globally, despite many innovation infrastructure challenges. We wanted to accomplish this through very unique “aggregation” and “acceleration” of innovation on the back of the IoT wave, which is as big if not bigger as mainframe, PC and mobile waves of the past.
Over the last couple of years, our teams in India and across the globe supported by global investors, have been quietly working on some very exciting things for life. We are not building another food or restaurant or real estate app. We are not interested in building another market place or services company. We don’t like to take singles. We want to take a big swing to the fence for a six even if we are clean bowled in doing so. We are here to take risk and build real products and platforms that deliver amazing experience to our customers. We are “engineers at heart”, building “smart things for life”. Come join us on this journey to bring out change.


Over the last couple of decades, while India focused on “IT services”, China focused on both “manufacturing” and “product” ecosystems. As a result, China has become not only the “manufacturing” hub but also the home for many fast growing global technology brands like Lenovo, Huawei, Xiaomi, Spreadtrum, Rockchip, Chinasoft, Alibaba, Baidu, and wechat spanning hardware, software and internet. China is now a $10 trillion economy while India is at $2 trillion, even though they were roughly about the same size back in 1990.
India files less patents than that of Iran and a fraction of what China files, which is true reflection of product innovation. India has zero companies in the top 100 most valuable companies in the world because we have not been focusing on building high risk high value product companies. So, a robust R&D and innovation driven product ecosystem across hardware, software, internet, e-commerce and social media is the key for sustainable long term growth and value.
