GBI, India is a representative of the Maryland Department of Commerce office in India. GBI is assisting the MD India office in providing export assistance services to Maryland companies seeking to expand their presence in India. 

GBI is supporting one Maryland company namely, BC3 Technologies, headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, USAseeking to expand its presence in India. BC3 Technologies develops novel and effective antihemorrhagic products for the medical, military, and general consumer sectors. BC3T’s proprietary chitosan-based aerosol product allows ease of application on wounds as well as high-clotting ability. Through the innovative effectiveness of Chitosan, a medical breakthrough with powerful anti-hemorrhagic and anti-microbial properties wounds will not only stop bleeding faster and more effectively, but they will also have greatly increased infection resistance. This pain-free wonder spray also prevents the growth of harmful bacteria. To know more about how the product works please see this video


GBI is supporting  BC3 Technologies by doing market research and identifying importers of chitosan-based aerosol products in India,  researching import regulations, determining product pricing structure in India, and setting up B2B meetings of the client with the importers in India. Reach out to if you are interested to collaborate with BC3 Technologies.




We are collaborating with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd (VTT) to plan and deploy optimal zero-emission vehicle fleets through a Smart eFleet simulation solution. VTT is a visionary research, development, and innovation partner for companies and society.


The Smart eFleet is a system-level simulation toolbox for optimal dimensioning of electric vehicle fleets (buses, trucks and etc.) and techno-economical evaluation of various deployment scenarios. It can support the zero-emission transition of existing vehicle fleets or help redesign and reoptimize in case of partially implemented solutions. The tool can scale up scenarios in a modular in any city or environment considering various practicalities from the specific operational environment (city’s topology, road infra, weather conditions, stops/delivery points and etc.), applied vehicle technologies (with specific technical characteristics and battery capacity), and location and capacity of the existing or planned charging infrastructure. The tool creates a digital twin of the transport network and allows to study of various deployment scenarios fitting the operational constraints and projecting the cost for any of it by providing Total Cost of Ownership calculations to support the economic viability assessment, thus reducing the risk of costly mistakes in procuring vehicles and deploying charging infrastructure. Please click on this link for a short video about the Smart eFleet platform


Please reach out to to explore how you could leverage the VTT smart eFleet tool for easy decision making and faster deployment of EVs, based on simulation data evidence.

1. Collaboration opportunity with Craste

Craste, an Indian company work towards crop waste management by providing additional revenue to the farmers. They convert this waste to make materials for packaging and furniture applications. They provide sustainable alternatives to timber-based paper by utilizing the abundant surplus crop residue left behind for burning after the harvest. They can provide sustainable packaging solutions. Their process of making pulp requires less water and is less toxic than the alternative pulping process. Substituting single-use plastic packaging with Craste’s sustainable packaging will reduce water pollution and enables the avoiding of cutting trees for furniture and packaging solutions, hence, deforestation is curbed.

2. Collaboration opportunity with Space4Good

Space4Good is an innovative social enterprise Netherlands company utilizing space technology for social and environmental good. 

Sectors: 1. Agriculture & Forestry 

              2. Conservation & Biodiversity 

              3. Peace & Justice
