“Through the thingQbator model, students have produced some compelling technology-based solutions for local problems”

The challenges faced by India are truly diverse and cannot have a standardized solution. It is essential to identify local solutions for local challenges. Through the thingQbator model, students have produced some compelling technology-based solutions for local problems. It is also a great example of how Cisco’s technology is being leveraged to catalyze young innovators. By implementing this unique program, NASSCOM Foundation has added immense value to our CSR program and we are proud of this partnership.

“The journey has been very engaging and wonderful”

The experience of the program has been very fruitful for me and my venture. I remember the day when I came to the thingQbator lab for the first time with just an idea in my mind. The cohort events and the atmosphere always pushed me to learn and do better. Now we are at a stage to do our first pilot run. The journey has been very engaging and wonderful.

“All thanks to thingQbator for tapping out our latent entrepreneurial talent”

From just cribbing about the parking problem to finding a solution for the same and converting it into a business avenue, we have traversed a long way. Along this journey, we find ourselves evolved out of the individuals with a very narrow view to those who have a wide vision and 360-degree perspective regarding a problem. All thanks to thingQbator for tapping out our latent entrepreneurial talent. From being the tech-savvy students to being budding entrepreneurs, we really feel indebted to thingQbator for providing us this platform where we got to meet Industry experts who provided us with the practical knowledge required to start our own venture.
