IoTIoT, an AI and internet of things (IoT) community headquartered in Pune, is organising AI conference on 24th as part of InvestHK’s annual startup event StartmeupHK Festival.
Working with COEP’s Bhau Institute of Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Leadership Pune, IoTIoT is trying to reinvent the wheel in IoT and AI sectors by building communities in India and take innovators and entrepreneurs to the global ecosystem.
Talking to NFAPost, IoTIoT Founder Nikhil Bhaskaran said IoTIoT is one of the co-organisers of StartmeupHK Festival and is trying to bring focus on the Indian ecosystem at this global event.
“IoTToT is organising an AI conference (https://ai.iotiot.in) within the main event. It is a reality that there is an enormous talent pool available in India in IoT and AI sectors. What we are trying is to bring prospective investors in Hong Kong to the Indian startup ecosystem for funding. Indian innovation ecosystem in IoT and AI can then register exponential growth after accessing their funding and global ecosystem,” said Nikhil Bhaskaran.
