​INK, a community that transforms imagination to impact, will hold its annual flagship conference on October 16–18, 2015 at the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai. Themed ‘Disrupt’, INK will host gifted individuals who have created a great impact in their respective fields with out-of-the-box thinking and disruptive ideas.

Now entering its sixth year, the INK Conference will feature more than 40 esteemed speakers and performers such as businesswoman and social worker Anu Aga; award-winning composer Kanniks Kannikeswaran; former P&G executive Ravi Chaturvedi; comic book storyteller Sharad Devarajan; roboticist Catherine Mohr; and celebrated actor Irrfan Khan.

“Disruption has been a buzzword in recent times, be it in innovation, technology, or any other context. Based on our theme, “Disrupt”, the INK Conference will bring together change makers who have dared to challenge the status quo. We are always on the lookout for bold thinkers who are creating an impact in this world, and INK gives them a great platform to shine and be heard”, said Lakshmi Pratury, Host and Curator of the INK Conference.

“We are delighted to partner with INK Talks as Edelweiss’ values and innovation led culture is well aligned with INK Talks platform and it’s 2015 theme, ‘Disrupt’.  Disruptive thinking today is bringing in a lot of fresh and new ideas. We are increasingly seeing adoption of transformative processes rather than just incremental improvements and this is in line with how new age India thinks and does. We look forward to the conference as ‘disruptive’ individuals from across a spectrum of cultures and disciplines take the stage”, said Rashesh Shah, Chairman and CEO, Edelweiss Group.

The world’s visionaries – CEOs, entrepreneurs, artists, scientists and more- gather under one roof for a cross-pollination of ideas and chance encounters for the next big breakthrough. The three-day ‘Intellectual Mardi Gras’ of sorts celebrates successful milestones of change-makers who share their stories, ideas and perspectives for about 3-18 minutes.

INK also identifies a multi-disciplinary group of young achievers under the INK Fellows Program. These hand-picked individuals have demonstrated the ability to forge new paths in their respective fields. This year, 21 bright individuals including Gingger Shankar, multifaceted Virtuoso Violinist, Singer, Composer; Richa Singh, co-founder of YOURDOST-an emotional support network for people and Babar Ali, an award-winning educator, among others will have the opportunity to help take their brilliant work to the next level.

To allow students and young professionals to experience the stimulating experience of INK, INK Live 2015 will be streamed live and uncut at ISDI Parsons, Mumbai campus.
