Over 100 Disruptive Technology Models Emerge at LTI’s Infinity Business Consulting Hackathon

Thursday, February 07, 2019

Larsen & Toubro Infotech Ltd.(LTI) has announced the formal completion of ‘Infinity’ – a unique hackathon for MBA students – which witnessed participation of over 400 teams from 11 top Indian B-schools and 127 solutions being designed by them.

The winners included: First Place Deepti Zain and Ajit Singh (IIM Bangalore), First Runner-up – Ritvik Gupta, Aadya Tewri and Dheeraj Rajpal (IIT SJMSOM) and Second Runner-up – Niteesh Sood, Ruthvik Priyatham and Nandita Ramesh (XLRI Jamshedpur).

The Infinity hackathon had been designed to challenge students to produce innovative ideas benefitting Society and Industry, and featured six unique business problems across the banking, insurance, manufacturing, energy and auto domains to be solved within three months that started October 2018. In response, the students came up with remarkable submissions that highlighted the new age, disruptive thinking of the participants,” Nachiket Deshpande, Chief Operating Officer, LTI., said.

Noting that LTI has embraced the Zen concept ‘Shoshin’ which calls for all to have a beginners’ mind, Deshpande said the success of Infinity served as a perfect testimony to gauge the power of a beginners mind within the student community, which showcased development of ‘disruptive’ ideas in using this approach. The present results highlighted how, in the years to come, Infinity would serve as a much sought-after platform for the academia community, he said.
