When innovation beckons, innovators respond. And what better call of innovation than Asia’s largest technical and Entrepreneurial festival, Techkriti. Techkriti has been a premier platform for technological breakthroughs and has been lauded by dignitaries such as Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, mathematician Vlamidir Voevodsky, NASA’s ex-astronaut Michael Foreman, physicist David Griffiths to name a few.
Since its advent in 1995, Techkriti has been a flag-bearer for setting up platforms of innovation to help people stay abreast with the happenings of the tech world so that they can infuse their creativity and innovation with it to bring out the best that we all have.

For those prime-movers who have the zeal to learn, this may well possibly be your best opportunity to have a first-hand experience with the tech you and I crave for.
The heavyweights are having a turn of their own, with ground-breaking workshops and boot camps by Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, and AMD.
