Accenture has launched the Accenture Innovation Challenge to inspire and catalyze technology innovation among college students across India. The Challenge invites full-time graduate, under-graduate and post-graduate students to imagine and develop innovative ideas that can create value for people and businesses and to discover their own innovation potential.
The Accenture Innovation Challenge encourages students to adopt new and emerging areas in technology and its applications such as blockchain, security, artificial intelligence, internet of things, and others. The contest will award seven winning teams including the Grand Prize winner and two category winners.
All winners will receive prizes worth up to Rs.1,00,000/- per member of the winning team, as well as certificates, trophies and a fast-track recruitment opportunity with Accenture. The winners will be judged by a jury panel from the business, technology and start-up fields. The shortlisted entries will be invited to present in a Grand Finale round to be held in Bengaluru towards the end of 2017.
