The vision behind this unique initiative is to create a web of seamlessly networked tech hubs across India where the best and brightest minds would come together to create technologies of the future, building India’s potential to become a technology source for the rest of the world.
On this occasion, Shiv Nadar, Founder, HCL & Chairman, HCL Technologies said, “Ever since we started three and a half decades back, we learned to think on our feet and yet think ahead. So a few years back, given the growth potential and aspirations of India and its technology industry, we decided to launch a series of seamlessly networked HCL Technology Hubs across India. The Hubs will not just house and incubate HCL‟s global businesses but also add to the country’s ability to become a source for cutting edge technologies for the world.”
Ajai Chowdhry, Founder, HCL & Director, HCL Technologies, commented, “Both HCL‟s technology vision and Shiv Nadar Foundation’s education vision will converge here in Haryana – creating a hub where not just future technologies will be built, but where India’s minds will be trained to power its IT engine. Future hubs will also take employment to tier II and III cities where it is most needed.”
