Techkriti is the annual inter-collegiate Technical and Entrepreneurship festival organised by the students of IIT Kanpur. Techkriti was launched in 1995 with the aim of developing interest and encouraging innovation in technology among students. In 2009, Megabucks (the Business and Entrepreneurship festival of IIT Kanpur) was merged with Techkriti, recognizing the increasing interdependence of business and technology. In seventeen years of its existence, Techkriti has evolved and grown, fulfilling its purpose and becoming one of the most eagerly-awaited college technical festivals in Asia. Techkriti culminates into a grand four-day festival, attracting footfall of over 20,000 from all over India and even abroad.

Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IITK) is among the premier engineering schools of India and is well known for its outstanding research. Techkriti and IIT Kanpur have been striving relentlessly towards excellence and perfection. The launch of Jugnu (nano-satellite built at IIT Kanpur) and Satellite Imaging Railway Navigation (SIMRAN) system to check rail accidents are the recent hallmarks of our technological prowess.

This time around, with Techkriti’13, we aim to go one step further and solve issues that plague our society through our theme ‘FIXING THE PLANET’. We realize that merely expressing concerns does not serve much purpose, unless those concerns are addressed by concrete and timely actions. In this regard, we have planned that Techkriti’13 will be a Carbon Positive festival apart from various other initiatives (ranging from water conservation to women’s safety). Browse through our website to see how you can contribute in fixing our planet!
