CNN-IBN, Ericsson join hands to launch 'Networked India'

Ericsson, in partnership with CNN-IBN, is launching Networked India – an initiative that, according to the company, will inspire, identify and celebrate innovations that employ mobility, broadband and cloud to make a social impact or address a specific social need, thereby having the potential to change the world.


The initiative seeks participation from people and organisations across India starting June 8th. The window for sending in nominations is open for five weeks and it ends on July 12th 2015. Entries can be sent through the campaign portal www.networkedindia.com.  The shortlisted entries will be evaluated by an esteemed Jury at the awards ceremony on the 7th of August in New Delhi, wherein the best innovations will get project support and cash rewards.


‘Networked India’ is in line with Ericsson’s global brand campaign ‘We enable Change makers’. States Chris Houghton, Head of Region India, Ericsson, “We have long envisioned the arrival of a Networked Society where connectivity changes the fundamentals of our daily life. As mobility, broadband, and cloud services are rapidly spreading across the globe, we are witnessing this vision, this transformation, come to life and we wanted to investigate exactly how people are using mobility and the internet to make a positive impact on their own situations and their communities. Through this campaign, we want to provide a platform wherein the real change-makers can come to the fore and share their stories.”


Speaking on the occasion of its announcement, Avinash Kaul, CEO, IBN News Network said, “The world has come closer because of innovations in the field of communication. As we continue to progress, our special series ‘Networked India’ will aim to highlight and felicitate these innovators and further encourage more such brilliant minds to come forth to help India and the world prosper.”
