This event is over. Over 80 campers came to discuss topics as diversified as one can see in the innovation area. Thank you all for making this a huge success.



BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees.



ICamp is a BarCamp for Innovation


Today the word innovation find its place everywhere, yet this is an inscrutable subject for many (perhaps all) of us when it comes to action. The contextual nomenclature of innovation in our industry can further generate several new ambiguous questions, such as,

• What is innovation for a software services company?

• How can one innovate?

• Should innovation be top-down?

• Does process help or hurt innovation?

• Is innovation more visible in Product companies?

• How is innovation happening in Non-IT companies?

• Innovation at Educational instituions: The new crop!

• Etc., Etc.

The collective understanding of innovation in an organization, society or country is deceptive, and practicing innovation is not easy, sometimes impossible. However sharing our individual belief, experience, learning and failure may bring a new perspective about making innovation happen.



We are pleased to announce the first unconference focused entirely on Innovation on Saturday, 23rd February 2008. Please visit the link for more information about this event and to sign up to participate.


We look forward to seeing you at this first of its kind of event in India.



    • NOTE - The date changed due to venue availability. New date is 23rd February.
