As the industry eagerly awaits upcoming DVCon India in Sep, as part of the organizing committee we realized the need to involve academia into this major event right from the day one. We brought few interested parties from leading academic institutions across India to serve in our review panels in 2014 and also in 2015.

At DVCon India 2014, a group of academicians along with few leading edupreneurs (EDU entrepreneurs) lead a “Birds-of-Feather” meeting on Day-2. We hope to continue that in 2015 as well.


One of the leading academicians from this group, Mr. C Sundaresan recently spoke with our VerifNews team on his views on this major event.
