captureHas this year been good so far for the startup ecosystem? It has been an extraordinary year with only good news flooding the newsroom and startup conference rooms. To add to the list, Hyderabad based startup, Smartron has decided to invest in Volta Motors.

The surprising fact here is that a startup is investing in another company. To this astonishing investment, Mahesh Lingareddy, the founder of Smartron justified – “Our association with Volta illustrates the strategy that Smartron has pursued since its inception; that we need to be known as a company that is building a strong product ecosystem across IoT verticals from personal to health to home to energy to farming.

“We are excited to be a part of Smartron’s journey. We share similar synergies of bringing in smart and innovative products that are aligned to create an Indian brand that are recognized globally”, said Anoop Nishanth, CEO of Volta Motors.

The 2017 road ahead for both companies is to collaborate with each other to commercialize IoT – enabled electric vehicles.
