WHAT IS SMARTMOVE?

We at Accel continuously are on a look out for the right kind of talent. To augment the availability of talent, Accel launched the #smartmove: Inspired by India campaign in 2015. A program focused on connecting the talent in the US to India and the plethora of opportunities it beholds. We managed to create quite a buzz and have been in conversation with people who are keen on making the move back to India. As part of the program we meet and network with professionals every year across the US.
