MUMBAI: India’s no. 1 business news channel ET NOW and Capgemini, one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, has announced the third season  of the Capgemini ‘Super Techies Show’- a global technology-based reality television show for Information Technology students and professionals. This year, participants from India, United Kingdom, United States of America, Netherlands, Sweden and France are being invited to battle it out and solve real business challenges faced by some of the largest enterprises across the globe.

This year Capgemini Super Techies Show has broad-based its format to include university students with technology background from the 6 participating countries. The participants will get an opportunity to work on real life business challenges faced by some of the largest 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.

“In today’s dynamic business environment, companies across the globe understand the need to identify the right talent that can leverage technology to support businesses on their digital transformation journey.

“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,” she added.

Speaking about the announcement of the new season, Hemant Arora Business Head, Branded Content TIMES TELEVISION NETWORK said, “Capgemini ‘Super Techies Show’ has evolved over the period of last 2 years.  It is a one-of its-kind project in India in terms of scale, scalability, global production standards, and meticulous quality. It is the result of an integrated content and communication strategy that we have worked on with a collaborative spirit of partnership with Capgemini.  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 6 countries and brings with it  the excitement and energy so far seen only in the entertainment genre of reality series.”
