Overview

NASSCOM is happy to announce its second batch of the NASSCOM DeepTech Club. This is a program intended to promote the creation and evolution of world class DeepTech Startups.

NASSCOM has always focused on cutting edge technological advances. DeepTech would involve Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), AR/VR, Robotics, NLP and similar technologies.

DeepTech is the way of the future and requires focused attention, as against nurturing a conventional Tech startup. Focused attention for extended duration entails both theoretical knowhow and the practical handholding of DeepTech startups.

    Digital Agents Interactive Pvt. Ltd.

    It was a great experience working with our Mentor - Mr. Subinder Khurana as part of the Nasscom's DTC program. While building a great product is very important, selling that in the market is a completely different and an equally important aspect of the business. We learned a great deal of the latter during the course of this program and we are very thankful to both our Mentor and Nasscom for this great gesture. The learnings will be helpful for a long long time.
