About
the Event
The flow of people, goods, capital, information and ideas has made our world a global village

Mobility is the reason of existence of today's world order. NIPP Mobility Challenge emerged with the aim to address the business problems that are needed to be solved to improve mobility, and as a result, improve how we travel, transport and exchange information.

The NIPP Mobility Challenge, in 2019, kick-started the process to foster engagement between corporates & innovative technology ventures by connecting emerging solutions with existing industry problems. This year, we aim to build on India’s biggest idea challenge for solutions in Logistics & Transport sectors and create a comprehensive forum for enterprises and start-ups to come together and explore new opportunities for ideation and collaboration.
