Lift India was a key international event on global technology and innovation trends. It was a one day conference with inspiring speeches and interactive workshops, a Swiss Innovation Night cocktail featuring top startups coming out of Swiss labs, an exhibition of interactive media projects and a discovery tour of the key innovative hubs in the areas of Bangalore and Mumbai.
Lift India brought together the most inspiring and disruptive pioneers and thought-leaders in India to collaborate on finding new technological solutions with social impact. Seeking to grow the Lift community and scout new technology opportunities in global innovation hubs, India is a key destination for Lift and its community of pioneers.
Piloted by Abir Oreibi, who spent 9 years as Business Development Manager for Alibaba.com Inc in South-East Asia and Europe, Lift is an international platform connecting innovators worldwide and showcasing their work throughout continents. On top of welcoming more than 2’000 people each year in conferences in Switzerland, France, China and India, Lift collaborates on open-innovation projects such as Data Canvas: Sense Your City, presented this year in Bangalore in collaboration with swissnex India.
In 2015, Lift came to India to meet the most active communities in Bangalore and Mumbai, and scout the best projects and speakers to bring to its flagship event in Geneva: Lift16.
