He emphasised the transformative power of digitization, stating, “Tech is now the lattice of human evolution.”  

Highlighting India’s remarkable growth, he said, “India’s transformation to a doubling economy is a tremendous opportunity. The nation’s 109+ unicorns created $344 Billion in value and 200+ unicorns are predicted to be in the country by 2026.  India is optimising to empower problem solvers. Startups will be the force multiplier to catapult the country into a $10 Trillion economy.”
