WHAT IS NEXUS?
Techniche, the Techno-Management festival of the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati, shoulders the responsibility of providing exposure to the entire Northeastern region about the technical and managerial aspects of the industry. With the country's young population doting over opportunities in the corporate sector, we take it upon ourselves to lay out a glimpse in this beguiling world.
With that, Techniche presents ‘NEXUS: the corpo-management conference’, the first step into corporate life. The conference spans from 2nd to 4th September, packed with various activities and sub-events. Nexus creates an atmosphere that enables the participants to learn, live and decode the corporate world by interacting with Industry Professionals as well as other participants from across the nation.
The Conference aims to provide a unique platform, connecting entrepreneurship, business, and management enthusiasts to industrial big-wigs and visionaries.
The Conference boasts itself for providing students with the opportunity to broaden their avenues and learn about the business dynamics of the industry growing at a blisteringly fast pace. The profusion of knowledge and experience shared by speakers, might just be the kickstart you need.
It's also a channel for our industry leaders to stay up to date with today's youth and their aspirations. Apart from this, we also aim to provide all-round development to our participants’ personality and growth with our soft skill subevents, hackathons, and competitions.
