Fast, innovative and steady wins the race.

Diamond is just another piece of coal that did well under pressure.

Unless you do something different today, how can your tomorrow be different.

BACKGROUND

India has truly become a start-up ‘Nation’. Since 2010, The Indian technology start-ups landscape has seen a tremendous growth towards creation of innovative startups and this country, a home to a new breed of young startups, has clearly evolved to become the third largest base of technology start-ups in the world, with total funding in 2015 grown 125% over 2014. Start-ups have substantially contributed to Indian Economy by enhancing citizen’s life style, building innovative solutions and growing opportunities for stakeholders. Technology driven start ups are trying to disrupt every aspect of a consumer’s life, creating significant growth opportunities for every stakeholder within the ecosystem. Business Tycoons like Ratan Tata and Azim Premji have already invested in number of Start Ups. Shri N R Narayana Murthy has also become an Angel Investor.

Out of 4,000+ start ups, Bangalore (28%) and Delhi NCR (24%) accounts for more than 50% of the Start ups in the country. Around 500 active investors (VCs, PEs and angel investors) have funded $ 2.3 billion to start ups in Delhi NCR alone. More than 40% start ups are founded by engineering graduates and post graduates (40% being young, below 30 years), majority of them are IIT graduates.

This event has been conceptualized and inspired by very successful Start Up Master Classes earlier organized three times in Bangalore by AA IIT Kanpur Bangalore Chapter.

Mission



To support Start Up India initiative of the Government of India, the program is to create and grow an ecosystem that fosters entrepreneurship. An ecosystem where IIT alumni interact freely to pitch their ideas, to ease the funding pressure and to solve the problems they face in their entrepreneurial journey. It will enable IIT alumni to learn the intricacies of setting up and running a successful Technology driven Start Up from the experts while appreciating the challenges and the sustainability of the Start ups. Regulatory complexities have always poised one of the major challenges for start ups. The IIT alumni will be exposed to Business Plan Document preparation, applicable Corporate and Taxation laws as well as Government Schemes and Regulatory Issues. They will interact with Accelerators, Angel Investors, Venture Capitalists, Private Equity providers for fund raising for their unique start ups. Senior IIT alumni will act as mentors to ignite the bright minds.

IIT alumni, bubbling with brilliant innovative ideas, are keen to be their own boss. What they need today is someone to show the right path and hand hold them to success.
