What exactly is Innompic Games?

We all know and love the Olympics. These games were introduced a long time back during the time of warriors around 3,000 years ago. But since then, the world has changed a lot. Today's world is driven by creative and innovative people. Hence, we need more intellectual games. Considering this need, we came up with Innompic games. These are games are for innovators, creative and entrepreneurial people who want to change the world >>>

Why did you think of launching Innompic Games in India?

Innompic Games was launched today, September 17, 2017 in Pune and we chose India for it out of a pool of countries.

This is because Innompic Games has a social aspect associated with it. It deals with conscious change and taking responsible steps. In this regard, we felt that India is the right country for its launch considering that India is very socially aware today.

What is the mission of Innompic Games?

These games aim to unlock the potential of people and encourage them towards innovation and helping people globally.

These are not merely Games, but can be looked at as an accelerated way of learning.

Unlike the Olympics, in Innompic Games, we have ensured that even the spectators get completely involved and can showcase their talent and potential towards innovation.  >>>

When did you actually think of the concept of Innompic Games?

The concept was being thought of since 2001 when I was with 1000ventures.com. The idea was to inspire people to create and innovate.

The actual idea of Innompic Games came in 2010 and we announced it only last year. We are now going to take it across the globe.

What are your plans in the coming future to ensure that this game reaches the masses?

We want to connect at least 1 billion people from across the world to Innompic Games in the coming two years. This is a challenge for all of us. By 2019, we want to make Innompic Games available on the internet so that everyone can participate.
