About Challenge

All ideas start with a spark. Some ideas are small and simple, others are big and bold. But all good ideas have one thing in common – the potential to bring about change. #imaginethat

Do you have an idea that solves a problem, offers a better way of doing something, or paves a path to happiness? Then bring it to Tata Imagination Challenge.

India’s biggest idea competition is open to college and postgraduate students across India and Tata employees worldwide. Your idea can be about anything, and you can be from any stream — literature, design, science, technology, medicine, economics, business or anything else. All that matters is how your idea makes life a little bit better, happier, easier. #imaginethat
