Patna,(BiharTimes): Patna boy Siddhant Vats has been invited to represent India at the HORASIS Global Business Meet to be held at Belfast, Ireland from June 23-24.
The 17-year-old student of Class 12 will be the youngest entrepreneur at the meet which will host some leading business leaders and policy makers from India and abroad.
Siddhant has been invited to the prestigious forum following a path-breaking innovation which saw him and three of his friends develop the world's first Android Smart Watch — Androidly — which includes the features of a mobile phone, computer and GPS, etc. This innovation has taken the technology world by storm and has been written and talked about in detail in the US, Europe and Asia in various newspapers and magazines.
Siddhant, a techno-enthusiast and a brilliant student is doing his final year of school in London. Siddhant is the co-founder of Androidly Systems and has been credited to have made the world's first Android technology watch.
Besides being a technoinovator, Siddhant is also into social service and is the co-founder of 'FALAK', an NGO which works with the under-privileged children and other issues to bridge the social gap in the society. "Siddhant has been teaching children in slums and orphanages even though he himself is a student", said his father Sanjay Sreevats who is an official with the India Tourism, ministry of tourism, government of India, who is presently posted at London.
On the basis of these achievements and initiatives, Siddhant has been invited to speak at the HORASIS Global meeting and will be representing the young generation of India by sharing his ideas amidst the multi-national corporate giants.
"I want to apply technology to make human life comfortable and easy. I firmly believe that technology is the gateway to human emancipation as history has already shown", Sidhant said.
"I give all credit to my mother Ratna Purkayastha, who is an officer with Doordarshan Kendra Patna for shaping my personality and encouraging me to think independtly", Siddhant told to BT.
