Dell Partners With INKtalks

on October 29, 2014 / by

The INK 2014 Conference is scheduled in Mumbai from October 31st to November 2nd. The theme for INK2014 is 'Beyond Boundaries’

Dell India, India’s leading end-to-end technology solutions provider announces the launch of their ‘Dell Campassadors’ program and a strategic partnership with INKtalks, an organization which aims to inspire youth, particularly in emerging economies. The association was born out of Dell’s dedicated focus towards the college student community, who not only exhibit a dynamic use of personal technology but are also advocates for the adoption of new technologies. With this partnership, Dell aims to engage college students through campus ambassadors in a year-long conversation with Dell & INKtalks to foster a strong sense of social orientation and bring student communities together to share knowledge and ideas with peers and work on collaborative projects, all to prepare them for real-life challenges.

The INK Conference is an annual celebration of thinkers and doers from diverse walks of life. 

World visionaries – CEOs, entrepreneurs, artists, technologists, scientists & more – gather under one roof for a cross-pollination of ideas and chance encounters for the next big breakthrough. 

The conference is known for its exciting ideas, celebrates milestones and looks to the future innovations. The conference encourages interdisciplinary thinking where the opinions and ideas of scientists, artists, entrepreneurs and film-makers, to name a few come together on equal footing.

INK takes the audience on a fascinating journey to expand horizons. Find out more about the speakers here and watch a short video of the INK Conference below. 

Dell has been very vocal among the student community and has successfully sustained annual programs such as ‘Back to College,’ an initiative to creatively empower college-going students both inside and outside the classroom by enabling students to seamlessly merge their offline and online lives. The tie-up with INKtalks is an extension of Dell’s Back to College initiative and reflects Dell’s continued focus and engagement with the youth. Dell has consistently engaged with the youth in the past, with initiatives like ‘Achieve with Dell’ and ‘I Can Do Kuch Bhi’ which inspired the youth to unlock possibilities and achieve their ambitions, using personal technology as an enabler.

Ritu Gupta, Marketing Director, Consumer and Small Business, Dell India said, “At Dell, we believe that technology is a key enabler for driving personal and professional growth. The college student community is on the cusp of realising their potential and as a brand, we are keen to help them take that next step towards becoming future leaders. We believe that our collaboration with INKtalks, an organization whose objectives align with ours, to motivate and inspire the youth, will help us engage students at their most energetic and aspirational growth stage. In addition, this platform is designed to provide the Dell Campassadors valuable exposure and learning opportunities to prepare them for real-world challenges. At Dell, we believe that equipped with direction, recognition and the power of technology, the youth can be enabled to further their goals and achieve personal brilliance.” 

Lakshmi Pratury, Host and Curator, INKtalks said, "INKtalks is about opening up the imagination of the youth through stories and equip them to create an impact in the world around them.  We are thrilled to partner with Dell to take our ideas to the student community at large and get them involved in activities throughout the year.  We look forward to engaging with Dell Campassadors who will champion the interaction with their peers, thousands of students in campuses around the country, and catalyze their exposure to INKtalks to help them realising their imagination into an impact to the society. When we combine the technology outreach of Dell with the projects pioneered by INK, we will have a youth community that can use the technology to make a difference in the communities that they inhabit."
