Techkriti is Asia's largest annual international technical, entrepreneurial and business festival of Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. The 24th edition will be held from 15th-18th March'18. Our efforts, work, and thoughts, all are synced to one simple thing only – help our society as much as we can. To ensure our goal, we have set up an international platform for the people to innovate and compete. Here, at Techkriti we truly believe that this can be done by having competitions and letting people crave for the best. In the process, everyone from the society will eventually lead to a better place. Keeping this in mind, we have introduced our theme “Prism of Possibilities”. Techkriti serves as a prism to the masses to refract innovation through their own perspectives and creation and proffers leadership in full colours. Every day in the festival introduces a new beginning, all psyched up to disperse into the horizon of infinite possibilities.Techkriti is the annual inter-collegiate Technical and Entrepreneurship festival organised by the students of IIT Kanpur.
