With the advent of emerging technologies such as AI, ML, Blockchain, IoT, Robotics, businesses today are witnessing a tectonic change in the way they are being run. The most pertinent question a business faces today is not whether it should embrace change, but how quick it is to adapt to change. Charles Darwin has rightly put it - It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change. With the theme WINNING IN TIMES OF PERPETUAL DISRUPTION, we are pleased to bring you to the second edition of the Hourglass Innovation Summit.

The event is attended by corporate innovation professionals, IP counsel, VCs, and startup CEOs/CTOs operating in the space of AI, ML, Blockchain, Robotics, Digital Transformation, IoT, Electric Vehicles, and so on. It's an invite-only event session followed by networking cocktails and dinner.
