With the speed of innovation becoming faster and world changing at a rate faster than ever before it becomes important that we sensitise ourselves to the technological developments that will shape the course of societies over next few decades.
The T- Dimension
“Technology as a dimension for businesses”
What’s T- Dimension?
- To become a well recognized national platform for technology related entrepreneurially relevant information exchange.
Enabling, sensitizing entrepreneurial minds about technology as a big business opportunity
Who would come to attend this event?
- entrepreneurial minds
Need for this kind of Event
As a student community we feel that we are not being sensitized enough about the potency of the technology create an impact on societal level and optimizing resource utilization. But, complaining and waiting for someone else to solve the problem will not give us a solution. We believe that every problem should be looked as an opportunity. Therefore there is an opportunity to create a Platform where all the stakeholders can come together to have meaningful and result oriented exchanges and interactions.
Issues to be addressed
Technology Sensitization (Technology as Business Opportunities
Technology for Social Sector
Indigenous and International Technology Transfer Regimes and Institutions Involved
Technology evaluation process and its importance
Incentives and Benefits from National and International Agencies
Law of Accelerating ReturnsEminent inventor and futurist of 21st century Ray Kurzweil's ‘Law of Accelerating Returns’ explains the significance of the rapid pace of innovation:
Rapid growth of technology creates an increasing demand and need for more entrepreneurs
If technology is increasing at such a rapid pace, then we're going to need an increasing number of entrepreneurs to bring these technologies to market. Otherwise, new technologies will sit on tech transfer shelves creating a loss of value for society. Ultimately, this can be considered a negative Return on Investment since we invest in the research and development of technologies, but don't invest enough in the commercialization process. Think of it as investing in a stock and the company going bankrupt. There's no value if employees (think of them as the underlying technology of a product or company) end up sitting around all day doing nothing.
Why you can’t afford to ignore it?
Ignoring technology is a threat; threat of losing the existing business. It is also an opportunity lost; opportunity of creating wealth by cost advantage, optimizing operations to an efficient level, and having a competitive edge. When one realises this the world becomes the battlefield and all geographical barriers shatter & succumb to the entrepreneur. But, one thing is for sure that one cannot afford to live aloof from technology in this competitive era. There are many examples in the past from which we can learn. IBM, a pioneer in the computer field was a market leader in the mainframe computers till mid 1980s. But, just because it overlooked the entrance of Personal computers by some other players it slumped down very badly. But, later on IBM well exploited the disruptive technology, the internet by becoming a dominant provider of e-business solutions and services.
It’s challenging but attractively doable
Come, be the part of future that is rich with inventions. Envision future. Enrich yourself.
Come to understand the T-Dimension 2009-10, on 11th to 14th December 2009. This event gives a chance to entrepreneurs to meet people; they normally may not get a chance to meet.
“Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible. Mankind's greatest achievements have come about by talking and its greatest failures by not talking. It doesn't have to be like this. Our greatest hopes could become reality in the future. With the technology at our disposal, the possibilities are unbounded. All we need to do is make sure we keep talking.”
