Gurgaon, February 12, 2014. Mr Rajan Anandan, Managing Director and Vice-President, Google India addressed students of Ansal University on Internet in India and changing trends in the internet space in an interactive discussion organized as a part of the University’s ‘Platform Lecture Series.  The Platform Lecture Series is a series of lectures by distinguished and well known personalities and is a unique initiative by Ansal University where eminent thought leaders and industry stalwarts come together to give insightful talks on topical issues affecting the youth.

Speaking on the occasion Mr Rajan Anandan said, “India has got unprecedented opportunities. Technology and internet make them more humongous. What we need is to incubate innovation and entrepreneurship to tap such massive opportunities.” He also added, “ Presently, 2.5 billion people are connected through the internet and this number is expected to reach 5 to 5.5 billion by 2020. India has 47 million small businesses out of which 20 thousand are only online as compared to Chinese business in which a single company Taobao has 6 million merchants to sell products online. Hence, the opportunities need to be exploited at large through the internet. This exposure would increase the success rate of businesses much faster as compared to earlier decades. So, be it Indian economy, small businesses , education, socialising, e-commerce or latest innovations, technology is going to profoundly impact each one of these areas and thus he recommended students to be extremely smart in ‘digital skills’.”
