Attending a Startup Weekend is a prize in itself. But still, we do have some material prizes to sweeten the deal. The idea was to get a good mix of prizes which would help the winning teams go forward and build on their startup even after the weekend. This requires a support structure and we have got you covered there. We have taken care of your hosting requirements, communication requirements, mentoring requirements and space requirements. Well, come to think of it, all you need is an idea, a team and passion.
1. Incubation support for promising ideas by the Wadhwani Center at ISB. The team from ISB will select the ideas of their choice at the event.
2. CIE@IIIT-H will offer selected ideas an invitation for further discussion to decide on how best they fit into the program. In these conversations, CIE@IIIT-H would like to ensure that they gel together as a team, they are doing this full-time, and the idea is something they can add value to.
3. Hosting from BigRock
