The Infy Maker Awards are testimony to Infosys’ commitment to encourage the concept of ‘Making’ in India, acknowledging those individuals that have an interesting or innovative solution for real-world issues or a knack for leveraging technology to make things easier. These Awards were initially launched in the U.S. by the Infosys Foundation USA in June 2015 in support of President Obama’s Nation of Makers initiative.

Mr. Pravin Rao, Chief Operating Officer, Infosys said,“The Infy Maker Awards in India aim to recognize some of the best minds, and unleash the power of creativity and imagination of the next generation of thinkers. We believe that these awards will ignite the spirit of ‘making’ in India and celebrate excellence in innovation. Through these awards we aim to inculcate and foster an ecosystem of forward-thinking makers. Infosys intends to steadily empower and reward such makers in India across communities and organizations.”

Congratulating the winners on their achievement, Vandana Sikka, Chairperson, Infosys Foundation USA said,“The Infy Maker Awards program celebrates the spirit of making that is innate to all of us. These awards seek to recognize and reward the creative excellence of makers throughout India whose ideas and solutions have the potential to address the various challenges facing our world today. We believe that this initiative will spark thinking, ignite curiosity and fuel the spirit of innovation across the maker community in India. Building on the success of this awards program in the U.S., the Infy Maker Awards program in India is a reaffirmation of our commitment to contribute significantly to the larger global community and inspire the next generation of makers. The future is, and has always been, shaped by those who make.”

In the first Indian edition, 20 winners were selected from more than 280 entries and more than 2,500 registrations.
