IITRHF - Aarambh Startup Boot Camp 2016 Results

We are thrilled to announce the IITRHF - Aarambh Startup Boot Camp 2016 top 5 winners. The cash awards are made possible by a generous grant from Mr. Raj Singh (EE, 1968).

This year IIT Roorkee Heritage Foundation (IITRHF) has partnered with Aarambh Ventures to transform its 5-year-old Business Plan Competition into a new program called IITRHF - Aarambh Startup Boot Camp. It refines the mechanics, organization, awards and extends the engagement of winning applicants via iLab: An IIT Roorkee - Aarambh Initiative.

The response of IITR students to IITRHF - Aarambh Startup Boot Camp 2016 was overwhelming. We received a total of 86 registrations and out of these, 24 teams submitted their completed applications successfully. The Live Pitch presentations were held at IITR campus with help from Prof Sandeep Singh (Dean Alumni Affairs), Dr. Rajat Agrawal, and Entrepreneur Development Cell (EDC). We are enormously grateful for their support.

The Judging Panel consisted of three professors from IITR, investors and successful entrepreneurs and accomplished IITR alumni. The panel has made its decision after days of close assessment at various stages of the event. Though there were many amazing ideas in the running, these are our top 5 winners -

Winners will be contacted shortly about the next steps regarding award distribution and iLab enrollment.
