      DH 23 - Building on five years of invaluable feedback from mentors and participants, and integrating the latest tech innovations, we've revamped our event for wider impact. Our audience has grown, now welcoming ages 13 to 65, and we've expanded language offerings to five (English, Hindi, Kannada, Telugu, Tamil), ensuring broader accessibility. A significant inclusion is the integration of AI tools, enhancing productivity within the design thinking framework.

      Simplifying our approach, we've narrowed down from 12 categories to just two: Products and Services. Traditional team mentoring has evolved into panel discussions, and our new 'Platinum Participants' feature offers exclusive access to the live Zoom platform. This not only offers intimate access to panelists but also enhances online safety.

      As an annual online event, DH expects unprecedented participation this year, capping at 2,500 entrants. This limited availability means early birds will reap the benefits. With our prize pool swelling from 1 lakh to 3 lakhs, now's the perfect time to seize this opportunity and shape your future.
