Accenture has launched the Innovation Challenge for bringing technology innovation among college students across India. The Challenge invites full-time graduate, under-graduate and post-graduate students to imagine and develop innovative ideas that can create value for people and businesses and to discover their own innovation potential.

“Millennials are keen to create an impact on the world, in particular through the work they do. It’s exciting to think about the innovation potential that new technologies offer them,” said Mohan Sekhar, senior managing director, Accenture Technology Services. “As we demonstrate in our recently launched Accenture Innovation Hub in Bengaluru, Accenture believes taking an innovation-led approach is key to success in the complex and dynamic technology landscape. It is important that we instill an innovation mindset among millennials even before they begin their professional careers, as they will dominate the future workforce.”

“We believe there are many young minds in India who have the potential to innovate and can excel in a competitive platform for innovation. The Accenture Innovation Challenge aims to do just that – inspire students to apply their technology talent, creativity and passion for change to develop innovative solutions that can create a positive impact. The contest is a platform for students to compete with the best at a national level and embark on their journey of innovation,” said Raghavan Iyer, managing director, Accenture Technology Services.

This first season of the Accenture Innovation Challenge invites entries for two categories:

Disruptive Businesses: Technology-powered ideas that can create disruptions in a market, industry/ business, process or partnership. This category encourages students to create innovative solutions that can shape various industries.

Tech for Good: Bold, radical concepts that imagine how cutting-edge technology can make the world a better place. The category is based on the premise that technology can play the role of a great leveler and catalyst in transforming society and the lives of people for the better. The Accenture Innovation Challenge encourages students to adopt new and emerging areas in technology and its applications such as , security, artificial intelligence, internet of things, and others.

The contest will award seven winning teams including the Grand Prize winner and two category winners. All winners will receive prizes worth up to Rs.1,00,000 per member of the winning team, as well as certificates, trophies and a fast-track recruitment opportunity with Accenture. The winners will be judged by a jury panel from the business, technology and start-up fields.
