Sundar Pichai and Satya Nadella Are Visiting India later this month
Indian-origin CEOs of two of the biggest global tech labyrinths — Google and Microsoft — are scheduled to visit India later this month.
While CEO of Google, Sundar Pichai will be on an official visit, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is on a private visit to his parents in Hyderabad. According to sources, in addition to his family visit, Satya will visit T-hub, the hugely popular start-up incubation centre in Hyderabad to interact with startups.
T-incubator was launched last month and is created by the state government in collaboration with IIIT-Hyderabad, Indian School of Business (ISB) and NALSAR University of Law.
Sundar Pichai is on a completely official visit though. His visit plans include meeting with PM Narendra Modi, President Pranab Mukherji as well as delivering a keynote at a Google India event on December 16 where he is expected to announce many initiatives related to Digital India campaign.
He is also expected to officially launch Google’s Wi-Fi initiatives for India in partnership with RailTel, a unit of Indian Railways that provides broadband services.
Although Google spokesperson declined to comment on the supposed event, but the company has already sent out an invite for an event on December 16.
