Event Description

This One Is For The Dreamers.

Imagine a world where inanimate objects have a chance to speak. A machine could tell a manager that her employees were in danger because its parts are aging. Imagine a world where objects can speak to one another.

Internet of Things adds a level of digital intelligence to the devices, resulting to merging of digital and physical worlds. IoT is gradually emerging into a bigger market and is the next technological revolution. It’s not only changing our lifestyle but also the way we work.


India ranks #44 in the Global Intellectual Property Index. With global advancements in technology, a strengthening local startup ecosystem, and access to a huge talent pool, we believe India can carve its way to become the next Innovation hub for the world.

 With the Hack-IoT (Hackathon based on IoT) being conducted by BloomBox, Entrepreneurship Cell KJSCE and RiiDL, the aim is to provide a platform to design and create innovative solutions that can directly impact millions of lives.

 Date: 3rd, 4th & 5th November
