About The Event :
The Infy Maker Awards were started by the Infosys Foundation USA in September 2015, to support the maker movement in the United States. The awards aim to popularise the spirit of making in everyday learning and celebrate creative excellence. Following the success of the Infy Maker Awards in the United States, the program goes global with the launch of the Infy Maker Awards ‒ India to bring forth the concept of ‘making’ in India.
In line with Infosys’ commitment to identify ideas and solutions to accelerate positive change in India, we are pleased to inform you that Infosys announced the launch of the Infy Maker Awards ‒ India, in February 2016.
The Infy Maker Awards – India have been instituted with an objective to ignite the spirit of making in everyday learning and celebrate creative excellence. An extension of the Infy Maker Awards in the United States started by the Infosys Foundation USA, the Infy Maker Awards – India will recognize and reward deserving makers in India whose ideas and solutions have potential to solve real world problems.
In its first edition, 20 winning ideas will be presented an award of INR 5 Lakh each. Through these awards Infosys aims to help create more makers to enable an ecosystem of forward-thinking innovation.
As we start this initiative in India, we would like to provide the students of your college, a unique window to showcase their creativity, igniting in them, a passion to make.
