VSDOpen2023: Think BIG with the RISC-V Product Development Hackathon – A Call to Young India!

India, the land of innovations and revolutions, is on the brink of another technological metamorphosis. And you, the young minds of our great nation, are at the helm of this transformation.

In this groundbreaking year of VSDOpen2023, we witnessed a marvel – the launch of VSD's First RISC-V development board and products. This wasn't just a product launch; it marked the culmination of years of hard work, innovation, and vision. Each year, with milestones like VSDOpen2018's dive into EDA, VSDOpen2019's embrace of IPs, VSDOpen2020's initiation of the Tapeout Flow, VSDOpen2021's monumental VSD Silicon Tapeout, and VSDOpen2022's unveiling of the First VSD Silicon Tapein, we've edged closer to a dream. A dream of an India that doesn't just follow technological trends but sets them.

The RISC-V based Product Development Hackathon, brought to you by Digital India RISC-V, Krypton Solutions and VLSI System Design (VSD), is more than just an event. It's a mission. A mission to transform our collective knowledge into tangible, innovative products. As young Indians, you hold the power to steer this ship, navigating the intricate route from ideation to product realization.

Localisation isn't just a buzzword for us. It's the foundation of our vision for a future where products are not just Made in India but are Made in India for the World. It's high time we shift from the age-old 'service-oriented' mindset to a 'product-centric' one. After all, why should we just be consumers when we can be creators?

The world needs to witness the prowess of India's youth. This Hackathon offers you an avenue to showcase this prowess. It's about celebrating the spirit of “Atmanirbhar Bharat”. But remember, this is not just about competition; it's about carving a niche in the global tech landscape, where Indian products stand tall and proud, reflecting the brilliance of our youth.

The clarion call is out for startups, student innovators, and visionaries. Join this revolutionary journey, be a part of the solution, and let's together sculpt a future where Indian products are celebrated on the global stage.

Dear Young India, dream big, innovate bigger. The world is waiting, and the stage is yours!

Are you ready to be the change? Join us in this journey. Think BIG, Think Products. Made In India, For the World.
