The India Conference at Harvard is one of the largest India conferences in the US with close to 1,000 attendees. It is hosted at the Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School in Boston by the graduate students of Harvard University. The 2016 edition of the Conference is being organized on the 6th and 7th of February with the theme of “India in Transition – Opportunities and Challenges”. The conference will bring together business leaders, government officials, philanthropists, and many other industry leaders to engage in a conversation about India’s path to global leadership.
One of the key areas for focus this year’s edition of the Conference is on the role technology has played in the evolution of India, how India can leverage technology in the years forward and the key challenges that we need to overcome.
