Techunt Details

TECHUNT 2013 is a National hunt for “India’s Student Entrepreneur of the Year” and workshop series jointly hosted by Nurture Talent Academy and Computer Society of India. Internet and Mobile has changed the world in a big way and have created a number of millionaires in the past decade and even a few billionaires like GOOGLE, FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, INMOBI, FLIPKART, etc. Thanks to the internet and mobile, the world has now shrunk and the boundaries have evaporated. We believe in our country and the people, there is tremendous potential for Technology companies and Start-ups who are solving some key problems of the societies with the help of technology, internet and mobile. Therefore, we are launching a training program to train and mentor technology students and professionals with the help of Industry veterans and entrepreneurs with the sole aim of creating and enabling 1000 entrepreneurs to start up in next 5 years.

It is our firm belief that by the time the program will end, we would have created at least a 100 students and professional entrepreneurs whose destiny will lie in their own hands.
