Momentum India is an effort to display the current scenario of Education in Media & Design in India and abroad, acquire industry perspectives and furnish information on career opportunities to students and parents, as well as illustrate the vital importance of Design to Industry in the process of becoming a Global force – just as we have already done in the IT Sector.
