Prarambh 2020

About Prarambh

The event aims to help entrepreneurs transform their innovative ideas into working business models and for existing start-ups to develop their prototype and conduct market testing. This is achieved by a six-week mentorship program in which participant teams are entrusted with a network of distinguished experts in the field of business to refine the ideas. Teams will then get an opportunity to pitch their nurtured business models in front of an investor-cum-judges panel - a unique networking and potential funding opportunity.

Prarambh 2020 Structure :

Mentorship starts from December 15, 2019, and concludes with a 2-day startup conclave on Feb 8-9, 2020.
