Tata Imagination Challenge

Meet the Winners of 2023

2.63 lakh participants, four rounds, 13 winners! #imaginethat

As the fourth edition of Tata Imagination Challenge draws to a close, we are delighted to present the 13 winners of 2023.

Our annual idea competition launched on 1 September 2023, inviting original, inspiring and impactful ideas for change. We encouraged our participants to #imaginethat their vision would help build a better future. And they did, in huge numbers!

Tata Imagination Challenge 2023 generated an overwhelming response. With over 2.6 lakh participants coming from more than 1,200 cities and towns of India, representing over 10,000 campuses, and 90+ Tata companies, this is now India’s biggest idea competition. #imaginethat

After several rigorous rounds of online and in-person assessments, 13 winners have been selected. Each winner shared with us not only an innovative idea but also a clear plan on how to implement their idea, a strong conviction in their idea and a deep commitment to bringing about positive change.

Tata Imagination Challenge 2023 culminated with an in-person Grand Finale. After two online assessments and one video round, 50 finalists travelled to Mumbai on an all-expenses-paid trip. They were hosted at IHCL President, Cuffe Parade, and invited to Bombay House, the headquarters of the Tata group, to present their ideas to a jury of senior Tata leaders.

To prepare for this interview, the Finalists had a little help from their Idea Buddy in the weeks leading up to the Finale. During the Idea Buddy phase, each finalist was paired with a Tata leader who mentored them, helping them to hone their idea and polish their responses.


Tata Imagination Challenge was launched in 2020 to create a space where all ideas are welcome. Designed to kindle the imagination of anyone who wishes to make a positive impact, the competition is open to all college and post-graduate students across India as well as all Tata employees worldwide.

Beginning with online assessments and an asynchronous video pitch, the Challenge culminates in a leader interaction, where participants pitch their ideas and themselves to a panel of senior Tata leaders.

Recognising the enormous talent among the youth of India and within our group companies, Tata Imagination Challenge celebrates not just one winner every year but 13.

Along with a cash prize and engagement opportunities with Tata, winners receive an accelerated entry into the selection process for the TAS (basis TAS eligibility criteria), the Tata group’s flagship leadership development programme. 

In just four years, the Challenge has become the largest idea platform of its kind, sparking conversations, driving innovation and igniting passion projects among ‘imaginators’ in huge numbers.
