ICT Award

Startup & Innovation Fest 2021

Startup & Innovation Fest 2021 is the platform for our top 12 finalists of the Product, Startup & Rising Star Innovation category each to exhibit their innovation/ideas. It is the pre-event allied to the ICT AWARD 2021.. Accompanying the Fest, the Mentorship session might be carried out by means of the Experts & Successful entrepreneurs associated with Information Technology.

ICT Startup & Innovation Fest 2021 is an event based on technological invention, students’ projects and startup ideas and innovation. This event highlights innovative ideas and encourages youths towards the development of technology. ICT Startup & Innovation Fest  2021 will also host a great exhibition where student’s innovation, projects and startup products are expected to attract a mass audience.

Major Activities

Exhibition and Product demo is the area of learning that is based upon demonstration of one’s skill, invention, and innovation. Participants will be demonstrating their invention, products, software including their startup company to the visitors.

Mentoring sessions will be organized between mentor and the participants, where the advice, knowledge sharing, and problem solving all will take place at the venue. While the aim of structuring the session is to be as productive as possible, mentoring will surely allow a bit of time to catch up informally at the beginning of a session! Everyone will feel more comfortable. Based on the discussion areas and challenges the mentee featured on their agenda, both parties can decide on a main focus for the session. This could be outcome based, such as coming up with a plan, or exploration based, such as considering a new approach or reviewing something that has not worked.

The event is a golden opportunity for all the startups and entrepreneurs as they will get the chance to meet with each other. This will surely pave a way to both the parties in working with joint effort and collaboration in the coming days ahead. This will also work as a guidance for the new startups. Sharing sessions between startup and entrepreneur will also be held which will surely benefit both sides.

The Startup & Innovation Fest 2021 is a great opportunity for all the competitors to meet Juries and experts in person. This will surely add more value to open doors of new experiences for all the participants. This fest will help the participants to get on the map for knowing the journey of juries and experts present on the venue. Along with this, the new startups will also get credibility with the presence of juries and experts and it will create unexpected opportunities to learn new ideas and about innovations in the venue.

There will also be a public voting session as the reference of all the participants who make it on Top 10/12.
