PROJECT CATEGORIES

Wisdom in post industrial world is knowing when to advance forward and when to step back to consider the consequences of our decisions. While being cocooned by technology, we have dismissed the thoughts about things that nature, and not technology can provide. So get creative and lead your team on the quest to find the right balance.

I

We all know at least one person who dreams of launching their own brand, or maybe you yourselves plan to do so. Browse this category for some of the problems faced by the organizations and individuals in the business, furthermore take upon the challenge to find creative solutions for these issues.

II

Change is inevitable and let's accept that there is no going back to the routines we had before Corona hit us. But what we can do now is find ways to upgrade our lives and of those around us in the 'New Normal'. Well if your mind is changing gears while reading this then Congratulations! We proudly provide you a platform to shape your ideas.

III

Technology has been tearing us apart in the epoch of time we are currently in, but there is one thing with the ability to bind us all together - Culture. What we need is the right balance between the two for the smooth functioning of this complex social institute called life. We invite you to work upon creating nuanced technology while respecting our culture.

IV

Once new products have been developed secretly and behind closed doors, today a targeted integration of customers, researchers, suppliers and partners into the innovation activities takes place.

What is the goal of the Electrothon?
We want to create an environment that embraces new ideas and technology solutions at the industry level. A place where technology designers and developers can come to help real life problems which can be solved through engineering. We know it takes longer than a weekend to build great solutions, but this is ample time to form teams of good people and begin creating great solutions.
How does Electrothon promote diversity?

Also, we strictly follow our code of conduct to make a welcoming, safe and comfortable environment for everyone. To ensure this, we have separate prizes worth 10k for the best female-only team.
