Why Kolkata


As the cultural and intellectual hub of India, Kolkata invites you to witness its artistic grandeur, dazzling culture, and literary legacy.

While keeping its inheritance intact, Eastern India has been successful in adopting digital at a fast pace which makes it a hotspot for organizations to invest and take the early advantage. There is a big need of having the right people to guide this implementation as digital is complex and is ever evolving. The need of digital wisdom for people who are starting their journey is important for the overall growth of the industry, thus a presence here, in this part of the country matters today!
