A networking opportunity exclusively for IITK students was organised by Entrepreneurship Cell of IIT Kanpur on 8th October 2014. This was indeed a lovely experience for all the creative minds at IITK. We had the pleasure of hearing to Mr Som Mittal, former president of NASSCOM. He has also been a member of the Indian PM’s Committee on E-governance. He has served in Hewlett Packard (Asia Pacific and Japan) and has founded the Data Security Council. He graduated from Metallurgical Engineering, IIT Kanpur in 1973 and has been the recipient of the Distinguished Alumnus Award.
He inspired the students by sharing his success story and acquainting them with the new dimensions of internet and telling them how it has spread its roots in our daily lives as well as all businesses. He also talked about the several start-ups under NASSCOM and gave them an insight into several sectors those start-ups are working in.
