Close on the heels of Apple chief Tim Cook’s visit to India, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella will be in India later this month.

In his third visit to the country in just seven months, Hyderabad-born Nadella is expected to meet entrepreneurs and developers as part of the trip.

Microsoft will also host an event with Nadella on May 30. According to invites, the head of the US-based software giant will talk about “how technology is fostering a culture of innovation to solve real-world problems and driving India’s transformation”.

Nadella was in India last December. He had met Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and visited the campus of startup incubator T-hub and Microsoft development centre in Hyderabad.

In November, he had delivered a keynote address at Microsoft’s ‘Future Unleashed’ event in Mumbai and met industry leaders like Mahindra Group chairman Anand Mahindra and Axis Bank managing director Shikha Sharma.

These visits and increasing engagements by global leaders highlight India’s rise as a huge technology consumer and not just as an outsourcing destination.
