The visiting delegation, which includes Infopark CEO Hrishikesh Nair, Technopark CEO Girish Babu, Cyberpark CEO Ajithkumar, and Kerala State Information Technology Infrastructure Limited (KSITIL) Managing Director S. Ramnath, will aim to attract more IT investment to the state.
“Kerala’s participation in the event is expected to give more impetus to the flourishing IT industry in the state. With Kerala now becoming a favourable destination for investments, we hope to draw more support from major investors to further develop the IT infrastructure in the state;” said Hrishikesh Nair.
At CeBIT, the delegation will make a detailed presentation on the major ongoing and envisaged projects of the three IT parks in Kerala. The team will also highlight the factors like cost effectiveness and the availability of large talent pool that give Kerala an edge over other states as an emerging IT hub in India.
The event will serve as a major platform for IT and telecom startups from the state to connect with venture capitalists, mentors and accelerators, who will help these firms to showcase their products and ideas before a large international audience.
CeBIT, which has the central theme of ‘New Perspectives in IT Business,’ will put on display a range of innovative products, including the latest technologies developed in India that have a potential to make an impact in the international market.
