Technology is transforming lives and businesses globally. Right from Space X sending a car to outer space to providing electricity to a village in Chennai to imparting education in rural African village to disrupting healthcare in US; technology has touched it all.

Even closer to home, technology has changed and opened a gamut of opportunities across industries. From healthcare, fintech, food & agro, education, enterprise tech, energy to aerospace; Indian tech has changed the game not just internally but is also leaving indelible mark on the global platforms.
