Satya Nadella is taking his mobile-first, cloud-first vision to #AccelerateIndia

Satya Nadella is headed to India, the first time since he became the CEO of Microsoft in February earlier this year. During his visit, Satya will talk about the importance of India to Microsoft and how technology is a key enabler to help Indian people and businesses thrive in the mobile-first, cloud-first world.

According to the invite we've received from Microsoft, Satya Nadella, along with Bhaskar Pramanik, Chairman at Microsoft India will make a strategic announcement at a media event in New Delhi on September 30, 2014. The company has set up a micro-site for Satya's visit to India to share information and photos from his trip and the press coverage around it.

Satya is also expected to head an 11-member jury to choose the winners of the 2014 edition of the ET Awards, the annual business awards from Economic Times, India's leading financial daily. The panel includes some of India's top industrialists, bankers, and lawyers.

We'll follow his India visit closely, and I'll be at the presser on the 30th bringing you updates from the ground. Keep watching this space for more.
