After Tim Cook, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella to visit India on 30 May
Close on the heels of Apple chief Tim Cook’s visit to India, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella will be in India later this month. In his third visit to the country in just seven months, Hyderabad-born Nadella is expected to meet entrepreneurs and developers as part of the trip.
Microsoft will also host an event with Nadella on May 30. According to invites, the head of the US-based software giant will talk about “how technology is fostering a culture of innovation to solve real-world problems and driving India’s transformation”. Nadella was in India last December. He had met Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and visited the campus of startup incubator T-hub and Microsoft development centre in Hyderabad.
In November, he had delivered a keynote address at Microsoft’s ‘Future Unleashed’ event in Mumbai and met industry leaders like Mahindra Group chairman Anand Mahindra and Axis Bank managing director Shikha Sharma. These visits and increasing engagements by global leaders highlight India’s rise as a huge technology consumer and not just as an outsourcing destination.
Apple CEO, Tim Cook is already doing his rounds in the country and has been meeting up with plenty of celebrities and members of the industry. From announcing a Design and Development Accelerator facility in Bengaluru to performing aarti at the famed Shree Siddhivinayak temple and attending a star-studded dinner at Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s home in the evening, Apple CEO Tim Cook on Wednesday had a packed schedule as he kicked off his four-day India visit in a highly “encrypted” manner.
