The idea of Jatayu, “Spread your wings and reach for your dream”, was born with a vision to foster innovation by partnering with academia, especially with the students from the third-year of CoE Campus Institutes through a controlled and integrated environment, with Virtusa providing mentorship to students on domain and next-gen technologies.
Jatayu is Virtusa’s way of giving wings to young minds for technological innovation to solve a business problem. Here we get some bright young minds and leaders from Virtusa to ignite the young minds by providing mentorship and guidance over a four-month process. Having witnessed a live demo as part of the season 2 finale, the competition is a distinct launchpad for those who excel at bringing their learnings to life. The Season 3 Begins!!!
Jatayu innovation challenge has been a success story for the past two seasons as we were able to build and offer the students a platform to take conscious initiative. The healthy competitive environment has positively impacted the student's mindset as they now look forward to grabbing this opportunity. In season 3, we are looking to find bright-minded individuals with a passion for technology to leverage company support for building real-time solutions.
Jatayu is an exclusive ideathon innovation challenge that offers quick-witted gen z’s a platform to work on industry solutions from incubation to induction Virtusa experts handhold these students through the process, enabling a hands-on learning experience that enhances higher-order thinking skills. Over the past two seasons, I have witnessed some unique solutions and am thrilled to see what new ideas and challenges the students bring for mentors this season.
As part of the industry-academia collaboration, Virtusa’s Jatayu contest has positioned itself to make the best of both worlds. With the help of academicians and industry expertise, our organization can give back to society as a whole by accelerating the speed of technology advancements. This platform empowers students to find solutions to daily life problems with the help of emerging technologies. We are excited to see what new we will discover with the onset of Jatayu season 3.
