(Start-ups under both categories will be judged by separate independent panels.)
Young start-ups struggling with initial funds- usually student start-ups from educational institutes who might be looking for mentoring,incubationandsmall funding.
Operational start-ups – Start-ups which have started operations (even if at a basic level), which are looking for funding. Start-ups which have already been incubated can also apply under this category.
Note that start-ups applying under both categories should be well past the Ideation stage.
What is at stake?
The most promising start-ups from both categories can hope to get invaluable mentoring and generous funding from our elite panel of investors.

The Operational start-ups can look for an attractive funding from the investors.
Prizes worth 75,000 INR will be awarded to the best team across both categories.
