The entrepreneurship challenge simulates life in a startup by challenging participants to learn new modes of team building, problem solving, design thinking, business model development and pitching to create a working foundation for a viable company.

Participants are taken through a three day journey where they create startups on one of the themes which are taken up in the competition. Participants are also given a startup from the sector assigned to them. They step into the shoes of the founder of that startup during the simulations round and undergo the experience of running a startup. Post that the participants take the ropes in their hand and create their own startup and pitch it on the final day to the experts. Winners get an opportunity to receive mentorship and support to nurture their startup.
