It is noteworthy that the leading startup set up its office in India one year after the launch of the Semicon India Conference by PM Modi.

Welcoming the move to set up Tenstorrent’s office in India, the minister said, “I am happy that within a year of the launch of the 1st Semicon India Conference by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, global semicon leaders like Jim Keller are moving to India and catalysing future design startups in the country. The time and place for RISC-V are India and Bengaluru is the capital of RISC-V innovation.”

PIB quoted the minister saying, “We are living in extremely interesting times for technology space and in the next five years, centres of gravity will be rebuilt around newer geopolitics and newer talent pools. Young Indians are going to shape the future of Semicon design and build and create new products, new devices and new solutions.”
