Lead – Technical Evangelism,
Foreign companies have loved Pune and want to establish over here. Biggest drawback is the airport. When we asked the Chairman of Saudi India Council if he would come more often, he said “not at this airport”. Otherwise people are friendly, weather is good and Pune is very good.
"The fact that I've been to Pune 5 times while being based in Mumbai (for little over a year) shows my professional and personal interest in the city of Pune. It is a fantastic city to be in and for us it is also professionally an important city."
Pune is a very busy town with good development and potential and I would say “Make in Pune”
"Tomtom chose Pune because of the availability of talent pool especially in GIS and engineering, local knowledge of India road information which is necessary for us and easy international accessibility which is very important for any global company."
I think Pune is kind of unique because it is not as hectic as Mumbai but it can be as busy as you want it to be. From a work perspective you certainly do get everything in Pune as compared to any other big city. In fact the travel distance is not as hectic as many other cities.
