The partnership between IIIT-Bangalore and PVC was formalized on Friday, February 27th 2015 during IIIT-Bangalore’s inauguration of the IOT-to-Mobility Apps for Community Excellence program which is sponsored by the Government of Karnataka's Vision 2020 initiative that aims to jumpstart the mobility focused entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Chopra added, “PVC is very excited to partner with IIIT-Bangalore and bring Indian IoT and Mobile App start-ups to the world stage and in doing so, be part of India’s transformation into an economic superpower.”
