Tech Mahindra amongst Forbes top 50 organisations in Blockchain for 2021
Tech Mahindra announced that it has been included in the Forbes Blockchain 50 list, a highly-respected global listing of pioneering companies, startups, and influencers in the distributed ledgers space, for the second consecutive year. Tech Mahindra is the only Indian company out of the 50 companies that has been included in the list.
Tech Mahindra has been recognised for developing more than 60 blockchain-based products spanning telecom, media and entertainment, manufacturing, retail, and energy.

At Tech Mahindra, we are at the forefront of leveraging Blockchain-based solutions and are pioneers in leveraging NFTs and Digital Identities to solve tough business problems and create a nuanced experience for end-users. This recognition by Forbes is a testimony to our continued focus on developing blockchain-based solutions to meet evolving customer needs.”
