NEW DELHI: Eastern Indian education sector major Techno India Group on Monday kicked off a pan-India hackathon to moot and develop innovative technology solutions that would thrive in a post-Covid world.

According to the company, its Sustainability Director Pauline Laravoire alongside the Group’s Director of Global Operations Meghdut Roy Chowdhury curated the Future-Proof Hackathon 2020. A 50-hour sprint with more than 500 participating teams comprising 2-10 members will collaborate to build solutions between Monday and Wednesday.

“India’s mindset, economic and political realities do not allow bright minds to let go of the need to earn a pay at the end of the month,” said Chowdhury. The Hackathon will also reward identified bright minds with long-term internship, employment and high-education opportunities.

“The Future-Proof Labs will gather the finest and most innovative talent in the country. It will host bright individuals and enable them to be intrapreneurs within Techno India Group.
