According to the press statement TAC Security released after meeting Ambassador Sandhu, Trishneet said, “He was quite impressed with what we are doing at TAC Security and encouraged me to help entrepreneurs in India and Punjab, my native state. I will certainly give back to my motherland in more ways than one,” he said, adding that “Ambassador Sandhu is immensely concerned about the future of Indian youth, especially in Punjab. I will extend any support to him on the matter.”
While sharing more details about his meeting, Trishneet said: “I shared my vision to deal with the menace of cyber security, which has snowballed into a serious global challenge with him. We largely discussed how India and the US can work together on cyber terror and intelligence.”

“Punjab is witnessing a low number of success stories in the startup community despite Punjabis being an entrepreneurial community. Therefore, Punjab needs a push under various schemes such as Start-up India launched under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” he said.

The companies focusing on innovation prefer the US and not India for IP protection,” he added.
