The Digital Age Is Here; Is It Time To Unlearn?

Driverless cars, artificial intelligence and 3-D printing are evidence that the world is changing quickly. In the backdrop of constant change, should India’s millennials stick to the age-old approach and jump onto an educational bandwagon, the end goal of which is a safe corporate job?

At least three young entrepreneurs – all under the age of 16 – who were part of a panel on the last day of NASSCOM’s leadership summit believe otherwise. Ishita Katiyal, an 11-year-old author and motivational speaker published her first book when she was eight. Saad Nasser, at 14, is the co-founder of a startup that is developing an autonomous truck. In his spare time, he also dabbles in blockchain technology. And Soumya Tejam is juggling two companies and her CBSE Board exams.
