ET Now and Capgemini unveil ‘Super Techies Show 3’
MUMBAI: Business news channel ET Now and outsourcing and consulting service Capgemini have announced the third season of the ‘Super Techies Show’, a global technology-based reality television show for information technology students and professionals.
This year participants are being invited from India, the UK, USA, Netherlands, Sweden and France to battle it out and solve real business challenges faced by some of the largest enterprises across the globe.
The show has broad-based its format to include university students with technology background from the participating countries. The participants will get an opportunity to work on real-life business challenges faced by large enterprises across the globe and interact with Capgemini experts and global technocrats across sectors. The winning team will be awarded with a cash prize of USD 25,000.
Times Television Network business head branded content Hemant Arora said, “It is a one-of its-kind project in India in terms of scale, scalability, global production standards and meticulous quality. The previous seasons have met their objectives in terms of business impact as well as in offering a pool of distinct and differentiated content. We are eagerly looking forward to an equally exciting and engaging series this year, as the footprint increases to six countries and bring with it the excitement and energy so far seen only in the entertainment genre of reality series.”
Capgemini group executive committee member and CEO India Aruna Jayanthi added, “The tremendous response we received last year from Indian and North American IT professionals and the enthusiasm and pride that it generated within the group encouraged us to extend this platform to participants from other countries. The show had a social media reach of over seven million people. This year’s show will also be the first time where university students can participate and leverage the capabilities of digital tools to solve business challenges.”
Registrations for the show are open until 30 June 2014 and all eligible applicants can apply online through the official website.
The show will be aired later this year on ET Now and will also be broadcast on Capgemini’s official YouTube channel for the global audience. This year, Abhimanyu Radhakrishnan, who has been anchoring the Capgemini Super Techies show from the very first season, will be joined by Ronette Chambers as a co-anchor.
