Mukesh Ambani and Satya had a fireside chat and the highlights of the discussion were obviously focused on the future of technology. Here are some highlights.

· The chat was focused on overhauling a business landscape and the progress that telecom had made over the years, due to its potential for digital India.

· Nadella talked about India’s growing digital potential and growing appetite for technology, given its 56 crore Internet users and 45 crore mobile users.

· He suggested to India to develop the start up culture so that the millions of engineers could be productively used in the Indian context. India has 65 crore under the age of 25 but the IT industry was valued at just $180 billion.

· Ambani dwelt on the enduring partnership that Jio and Microsoft had started to build and the long term prospects of that relationship. Ambani added that mobile networks in India were on par with the best in the world which was the big shift.

· Ambani highlighted that pre-Jio India had broadband with 256 kbps but post-Jio it had improved to 21 mbps with 38 crore customers migrating to 4G networks.

· Both Ambani and Nadella agreed that India had the opportunity and the potential to become the premier digital society. Both pointed that the onus was on businesses and the government to emerge as a pacesetter in application of technology.
