INK Makers

The INK Makers program is an impact-driven initiative designed to celebrate invention and innovation. Inspired by the current wave of the ‘Make in India’ movement, it aims to identify and nurture these ‘makers’ across India.  

INK Makers are identified as curious young individuals who are interested in exploring new innovations and technologies across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, and design. 

With the INK Makers program we introduce the ‘maker culture’ to undergraduate students and mentor them to turn their ideas into tangible products and concepts.

World’s visionaries – CEOs, entrepreneurs, artists, technologists, scientists & more – gather under one roof for a cross-pollination of ideas and chance encounters for the next big breakthrough. Game changers from every walk of life also share their stories, ideas and perspectives in between 3-18 minutes – an intellectual ‘Mardi Gras’ if you like.
