MHRD's Invitation of Ideas/PoC



MHRD is inviting institutes to nominate teams (two per team) with ideas/Proof of concepts (PoC) in the following two categories.
Advance Technology based solutions:
Cyber Security
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
Bio-Science and Biotechnology
Medical Device and Health Care
Mobile & Smart Phone Technology
Automobile Technology & Transportation
Clean Technology
Category B: Social Venture/Business Based Solution
Agriculture and Food
Affordable Health Care
Affordable and Renewable Energy
Clean and Portable Water
Sanitation, Waste Management
ICT and IOT
Environment

Along with the idea/proof of concept, ‘Business Plan Development” will be an integral part of this national event.

The shortlisted ideas/PoCs will get opportunity to receive intensive mentoring sessions to be organized at regional level by MHRD’s Innovation Cell and AICTE. Later the selected applicants will take part in exhibition at national level

Students have to submit their ideas for evaluation in the prescribed format (given in form below) to the college committee by May 30th 2019, so that they will have enough time to build the PoC at the college’s incubation center. 

What next after nominations of teams (by college committee)?: 
Mentoring Session at Regional Level: Members  of the nominated ideas will get the opportunity to join the intensive mentorship session/bootcamp which will be held at regional level. Mentorship session will help applicants to refine the problem, shape the idea and develop a feasible technology development and business plan. 

Exhibition at National Level: On successful completion of mentorship session, best PoCs will be given a chance by MHRD to exhibit them at national level. PoCs that are selected by MHRD will also go through a next level of mentorship/ acceleration phase to shape into a venture form and making them ready to pitch to incubator for support. 

Incubation Support and Network: The selected ideas and PoCs successfully gone through phase of mentorship and boot camp will be facilitated with a guiding hand by MHRD to get connected with incubation units and other ecosystem enablers to receive support and resources such as market linkage, funding and angel investment etc. and connection with business incubators to take the innovations forward. 

Further, PoCs that are selected by MHRD will also get international opportunity to receive global exposure to innovation and start-up ecosystem of countries such as South Korea and Canada.
