Bangalore-based mobile payments company JiGrahak Mobility Solutions has been selected as one of the 34 "Technology Pioneers" for 2009 by the World Economic Forum. The WEF names such companies from around the world each year as among the "innovators of the highest calibre whose technologies will have a deep impact on business and society".
Helion Ventures had invested $2.2 million in JiGrahak in August 2006.
While JiGrahak is the only India-headquartered company on this year's list., another tech firm that does a lot of its development out of India - Nivio - has also been named.
Venture Intelligence had helped in spreading awareness among the Indian VC community for this program.
