Who we are
Techkriti is an annual international technological and entrepreneurial festival organized by the students of Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. Etymologically, the word 'Techkriti' is composed of two words, 'Tech' in English which stands for technology and 'Kriti' in Sanskrit stands for creation. Hence, the word 'Techkriti' signifies creation or innovation in technology.
Techkriti was first held in 1995, and has since grown into one of the largest technical festivals in Asia. The festival is held over four days every March, attracting participants from every corner of the country as well as from abroad, comprising a total footfall of over 25,000 from all over India and abroad.
