Knowledge Factory is a platform for young professionals to meet over a meaningful experience. It is an avenue for knowledge exchange through a fun and interesting way. The tagline Mind. Mischief. More is about serious fun. It leaves a lot to the imagination because the Factory is an open canvas. Much of what will happen on the day is open to interpretation. Through the festival of Ideas, Insights and Trivia delivered by way of talks and quiz, we will assemble experts to throw light on unconventional topics and the best quizmaster. This will be a unique gathering of thinking Indians.
