Simultaneously, India needs to improve on the ease of doing digital business.

Moderated by Bhaskar Chakravorti, Fletcher's Dean of Global Business, the Unconference will discuss areas of untapped potential within India and how to best utilize its vast digital ecosystem. This event builds on the research of Digital Planet, an interdisciplinary research initiative of The Fletcher School's Institute for Business in the Global Context that is dedicated to understanding the impact of digital innovations on the world.

India's Digital Turn? will cover the key findings of Digital Planet's latest research, supported by the Rockefeller Foundation, on what it will take for India to unlock economic and societal value from digital growth.
