Why is there a nomination fee? 2017-08-13T15:00:30+00:00
This is an acclaimed industry event. The nomination fees helps to cover the costs with administration and processing the large number of entries received. Fees contribute to the major part of operational cost of the award ceremony and the jury rounds. It is a sustainable model for us since we don’t run the award through sponsorship fees for the sole reason that none of our sponsor should ever influence the selection of the award.

This award is open to all whether it’s large, midsize or even startups that are judged unprejudiced on common platform. Initially the award was focused more on Indian innovations but as years passed by we received bulk nominations from overseas companies too. We are now open to all the companies in Telecom, Social, Mobility, Analytics and Cloud domain across the globe.
Why AGBA? 2017-08-13T14:59:24+00:00
We have a vision to portray India as a conspicuous innovative hub for rising brilliance and virtuosity. We were often questioned about panache and endowment of our countrymen for being at power to the innovations of next Indian Google or Indian Microsoft. But, satirically those companies are lead by Indians. But, it was by 2010, that we realized that recognition in India is important showcasing innovators and their innovations that are changing the life of millions
