Data Innovation Bazaar
To realize the government’s vision of a “New India”, innovation in cutting edge technologies is critical. Equally important to this transformation is data, which is transforming our lives and will be the currency of the future. We need to leverage the power of big and fast data towards achieving the national priorities. Western Digital is extremely excited to partner with Startup India and Invest India to contribute towards realizing this vision. Together, we will provide a grand platform for young innovators to contribute towards solving key issues of national importance, by leveraging the power of data. The initiative is equally designed to help students and budding entrepreneurs to not just showcase their ideas but build them into successful businesses. Overall, Data Innovation Bazaar is an unparalleled opportunity for India’s young minds, with a chance to win attractive prizes and mentorship.
