WIPRO: Innovative Since 1945 with the Tech King at the Helm

The CFI judging panel applaud the ‘WIPRO Way’ which calls for good timing, predictability, reliability and cost-cutting at this IT giant from Bangalore. 

WIPRO started out as a vegetable oil manufacturer in 1945 and has been headed by Azim Premji since the late 1960s. Chairman Premji was described by Business Week as India’s Tech King (which according to the judges is just about right). The judges declared WIPRO a Corporate Leader in Asia because of the organisation’s history of innovation and strong CSR policies – which focus to a large extent on the quality of school education.
