In India, British PM Theresa May praises Kano in first-ever bilateral visit

This week our CEO Alex Klein is joining British Prime Minister Theresa May on her first visit to India!

That is exactly what we are doing with this delegation – bringing along some of our biggest, most successful companies and our brightest start-ups, from every region of the UK, in order to open up new markets for them and promote them to the wider world.

One of them, Kano, is using its unique technology to teach children to code in UK schools. Just think of the impact that could have in India.

Speaking at the inaugural session of the India-UK Summit with India Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Theresa May praised the way Kano is being used to teach kids how to code in the UK and in many other countries around the world and the prospects this could bring to India. Modi discussed the need to keep the UK open to Indian talent even after Brexit.

Legendary British inventor Sir James Dyson was also at the event, and contributed with his own speech about the need to get engineers started early. Dyson will open his own institute to tackle talent shortage in the UK by Autumn 2017.

Kano is part of the group of delegates joining the PM on a trip to the cities of New Delhi and Bangalore with the context of the India-UK Tech summit. This is a 3 day event to discuss and kickstart joint initiatives in fields like technology for education, women in tech, robotics, smart cities amongst many others.

During the trip we will be visiting the technology hub of Karnataka, the IT capital of India and the 4th largest technology area in the world just behind Silicon Valley, Boston and London. This region is expected to become the largest in the world by 2020, employing over 2 million people, the highest number of IT professionals in the world.

Thanks for all your support!
Team Kano.
