Student powered energy and ideation at it’s very best -The Toshiba Kioxia pioneered HACKcellence Fest reached its crescendo with the Top 11 shortlisted making their live pitch to the jury panel. Incredible talent, loads of fire in the belly and the passion to be game changers stood out in ample measure.

Mighty thanks and immense gratitude to all the judges, mentors, the hundreds of participants from around the M East, Africa and India who remained the backbone and the inspiration for this pioneering initiative
