About Pre-Seed Ideation

This is an ideation accelerator program for supporting IITK students’ pre-seed start-up ideas

To covert these ideas in to reality students need small funding. This program provide support to 5-10 ideas with maximum funding of 1 lakh per proposal. The list of areas in the program are (not limited to):

  • IoT
  • Machine Learning
  • Platform development
  • Embedded Systems
  • Robotics
  • Bioinformatics
  • Material genome

If there are students who have ideas and would like some financial support to convert their ideas into reality, they can get a chance to support their projects from this program.
