A platform for innovators

What is TechExpo?

Techniche (The annual Techno-Management festival of IIT Guwahati) now in its 21th edition has taken up the initiative of organising TechExpo, with the cardinal aim of bringing to light the technological advancements made by the youth of this country and provide an opportunity to showcase their innovations on a larger platform. The prime motive is to inspire the young minds in India to engage in creating new ideas and to promote the idea of innovation very much on the lines of Make In India and Startup India.

What’s in it for me?
