Tata Innovista 2013 attracted over two thousand entries, from 70 Tata companies across the world in different geographies. The final judging and the awards function concluded on the 26th of April and winners were announced under the categories of Promising Innovations, Leading Edge - Proven Technologies and Dare to Try.
According to Sunil Sinha, chief, group quality management services, Tata Sons, "Tata Innovista has become a great indicator of the success of the innovation drive in the Tata group — and of the inherent capabilities of its people. The trends observed in the 2013 edition signify a growing culture of innovation in the group with elements of technology-orientation, cross-pollination and risk-taking ability. We have observed that over 70 percent of the participants are in the age brackets of 20-30 and 30-40 years, indicating that the innovation eco-system in the group is encouraging and empowering young managers to think out of the ordinary."
Tata Innovista is a group-wide programme held annually to encourage, recognise and showcase outstanding innovations done by Tata companies across the globe.
