There is no dearth of innovative ideas at Shoolini, and the university always encourages its students to come up with pathbreaking ideas and supports them in every possible way.
Recently, the Indian Innovation Council (IIC), Shoolini University, launched its special programme called Start-Buzz, where the students will be invited to come up with innovative ideas and IIC will help them to successfully implement the prototype on the campus.
IIC will also provide a few selected start-ups with guidance and seed money to get ready for angel investing or venture capitalists.
The first step of the event will be submission of ideas. Students are required to submit their entries between September 25 and 30. Next, the IIC team will carefully go through all the entries and ideas submitted and select those that have the potential to be implemented on the campus.
Prof Kamal Kant Vashisht, Director E-learning and IIC Convenor, said the candidates will be given two days to prepare the pitch and present their business plan before the panel on October 3. They are required to present a prototype and other statistical figures along with the business plan. It should describe how they plan to implement the idea on the campus, Prof Vashisht added.
The IIC convenor said a part of the funding may be provided to students who needed it to develop their prototype.
In the final step, the IIC panel will declare the results on Oct 4 and decide upon a start-up which would be implemented on the campus. A seed amount will be given to the student to turn their idea into reality, said Prof Vashisht.
IIC Shoolini was established in 2018 to cultivate an entrepreneurship and innovative culture in the university. The primary mandate of IIC is to encourage, inspire and nurture young students by supporting them to work with new ideas and transform them into prototypes.
