Technex’18 takes immense pleasure in bringing to you the 3rd edition of Startup Fair, the flagship entrepreneurial event under the umbrella of the annual techno-management fest of IIT (BHU) Varanasi. It is being organized from 16h to 18th February 2018 in association with Malaviya Centre for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship and UP Government IT and Start-up Policy at IIT(BHU). Startup Fair is the most prominent national convention for young entrepreneurs and all that it aims for is to help the participating start-ups grow better and bigger. The fair would serve as an expo, to showcase the exciting, innovative and creative services, products, ideas and solutions for the budding entrepreneurs. The event will serve to provide an entrepreneurial platform for various start-ups in our college and in the northern region. The goal of the event is to give something to the start-up community by introducing emerging start-ups to the necessary resources, mentorship, and investment opportunities.
This edition of Startup Fair will be graced by the presence of successful entrepreneurs and Venture Capitalists like Mr. Akhilesh Kumar Mishra, IAS (UP Government Secretary), Mr. Ishwar Jha (Former Digital Services Head of Zee Entertainment and Present Founder and Director of Appetals Solutions Private Limited), Mr. Abhay Tandon (Program and Partnership Manager of Target Accelerator Program), Mr. Vish Narayanan (Operation and architect manger at general motors) and Prof. P.K.Mishra ( Secretary, MCIIE, IIT-BHU), Mr. Anuj Desai (Principal of CFO center limited), Mr. Annu Grover (Founder of nurturing green), Mr. Subhrangshu Neogi (Director,Head- Group Marketing & Brand-Religare-Group CMO role).
The highlight of this edition is that it would be held under two different categories. The first category is Ventura (B-plan event) in which teams having just an innovative idea and a business plan to support it will compete for the prize money. Startup Fair will serve as a platform for these teams. The second category is the Startup Battle in which early-stage startups having an established business model, well-defined revenue system and their products launched in the market will compete against each other. They will have an opportunity to get funded by VCs and investors present at the event and will fight for the ultimate Startup Fair Prize.
Apart from the prize money, the participating teams get to attend a plethora of other events like the Networking session with the VCs, a series of guest lectures and workshops on the inculcation of modern technologies in the start-up world. Thus, this event would bring together start-ups, mentors, and investors to help build interactions and strengthen the network within the entrepreneurial community.
