This also gives the much required exposure for CAFIT companies and I am sure our members would utilise this opportunity for their maximum benefit.”
Established in 2008, the Calicut Forum for Information Technology (CAFIT) is a Non Profit Organization. The main focus is to bring a conducive eco system for technology entrepreneurship in Malabar. CAFIT, a self financing and independent technology movement, directs a great deal of attention to the growth of regional SMEs and contribute to technology entrepreneurship in the region. CAFIT has been striving to change a conservative Malabar to a Technology hub by upholding traditional values. Today CAFIT can loudly say it involved profoundly in bringing technology attention to Kozhikode. The introduction of the mini IT Park of CAFIT, the CAFIT Square is the result of its hard work.
