Nandan Nilekani coming to Seattle, lecturing on India

Nandan Nilekani, co-chairman of Infosys and one of the founding tycoons of India’s technology outsourcing industry, will speak in Seattle at a World Affairs Council event in Seattle on April 2.

Nilekani periodically comes to the area — he’s a regular at Bill Gates’ CEO Summit — but this visit comes shortly after the release of his new book, “Imagining India: The Idea of a Renewed Nation.” The book calls for India to emphasize innovation and reforms to continue its economic growth.

Nilekani’s April 2 lecture, sponsored by the Museum of History & Industry and the University of Washington Center for Information and Society, will “address India’s place in the burgeoning technology and business markets of the 21st Century we well as how technological innovation factors into India’s entrepreneurial growth. India’s growth in the IT sector will also be examined in the content of its international relationships,” according to today’s announcement.

The event costs $15 and begins at 7 p.m. at the Museum of History and Industry.
