Building a nation is synonymous with building industries in the nation. While a favourable environment – which our Government has fostered through the Make in India and Digital India initiatives – is definitely a catalyst which speeds up our nation’s growth, we need a diverse portfolio of industries to accelerate indigenous technology. With this in mind, Intel and the Department of Science and Technology (DST) have introduced the ‘Innovate for Digital India Challenge (IFDIC). IFDI- 2.0 is anchored by T-Hub Foundation, which is one of India’s largest Technology Business Incubators (TBI).
The road to Industrial development is paved with a lot of challenges but the benefits of a flourishing industry outweigh these issues. By improving the social and infrastructural environment, we can make India the go to destination from not only domestic start-ups but also attract foreign investment which in turn helps build a better economy. IFDIC is an initiative that aims to do just that for Digital India.
In order to help you understand the different aspects of technology, how they impact our economy and help our citizens; a webcast series called ‘Let’s Talk Innovation’ has been launched. You can interact with experts from the industry and the government to gain from their experiences towards building Digital India.
