Bengaluru is the capital of the southern Indian state of Karnataka. A demographically diverse city, Bengaluru is the second fastest-growing metropolis in India. Bengaluru is sometimes referred to as the “Silicon Valley of India” or the “IT capital of India”, because of its role as the nation’s leading Information Technology (IT) exporter. Bengaluru is home to serveral multinational corporations such as SAP, IBM, Oracle, Bosch, Intel, Airbus, Microsoft, Toyota, Texas Instruments, McAfee, Siemens, Hitachi, Cisco, Ericsson, Nvidia, Coca Cola, Schneider Electric, Fuji etc. It is also home to many educational and research institutions of international repute.

Networking is a strategy for empowerment. Over the last decade, we have seen networking and sustainability play an increasingly important role in the way that organizations conduct and talk about themselves. Together, they've helped to push corporations to newer levels of transparency, opened up avenues for greater engagement, and forced organizations to rethink about their role in the society. With the advent of internet, various social media platforms have served as bridges to connect the people at the local level with those at the global level, as they work towards their shared goals. The proposed one-day international conference “People Connect: Networking for Sustainable Development” aims to bring together leading academicians, researchers and industry experts from across the globe to deliberate on the role of people-networking in sustainable development – social, economic, technological and geo-political. The Keynote speaker at the Conference is Dr Monica Forret, Director, Doctor of Business Administration Program, St Ambrose University, Davenport, Iowa, USA.
