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
Any innovative product or solution is welcomed to be nominated under the various categories mentioned in the pre-requisites of the awards. 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.
For submitting the nominations, you need select the categories as per your innovative product/solutions. After selecting the categories, you need to fill up the nomination form and submit the supporting documents. Once your nomination is shortlisted for the award AGBA team would do the proceedings.
