Giving a ‘daring’ break from a ‘traditional event’ format, Innofest, an event announced by iSpirt is a ‘first of its kind’ marquee event which is going to kickstart the next innovation wave in India.
Why Innovation, you may ask. Simply because we have an ‘innovation’ deficit in the country today!
We are no doubt an enterprising nation, but we still have a long way to go when we look at being an ‘innovative’ nation. However, there is no shortage of imagination and creativity in India. We need to build our skills where this imagination and creativity is applied to generate unique solutions to local problems. InnoFest is the platform to tackle this challenge.
To reduce the innovation deficit in India, we need to operate at two levels: the individual and the policy. InnoFest uniquely brings these two elements together:
- The Young Ignited Minds: will sharpen their innovation skills in a fun and experiential setting
- The Government of India: will activate thoughtful policies that will help fulfill the innovation potential of India
Innofest is also inviting applications from people to win a chance to an exclusive 10 minutes with a speaker of their choice and interview them.
Innofest has a great line up of speakers who will be attending the event, these eminent personalities across a galaxy of disciplines includes Sridhar Venkata (Akshay Patra), Naveen Tewari (InMobi), Kshitij Marwah (MIT Media Labs), Kunal Shah (Freecharge), Rohan Shravanan (Notion Inc), K Ganesh (CEO, Portea Medical), Vijay Chandru (Strand Life Sciences), Bhavish Aggarwal (CEO, Ola Cabs), Vijay Shekhar Sharma (Paytm), Bhanu Chopra (Raitgain) and Phanindra Sama (RedBus).
