About this event

“Global Innovation Drive” is our annual flagship event where deserving tech enthusiasts, budding entrepreneurs, and anyone who has the hunger to do something different is given a platform to present their ideas, prototypes or even a full-fledged startup in front of the Investors and the ideas that have potential are provided funding and even an incubation offer.

Global Innovation Drive (GID) 3.0 will be a 2-Round Hackathon Event, in which your (or your team's) Entrepreneurial Abilities like technical, problem-solving, and pitching skills will be tested.

A Problem Statement will be provided 72 hours prior to the deadline. Participants will be required to come up with a proper cost-effective solution to the given problem statement.

For their solutions, participants must develop a prototype and a presentation. Before the conclusion of the 72-hour period, only the team leader must submit the solution consisting of a pitch deck for the entire team. Either an app or a website design should be used for the prototype. It must include a clear description of how its model will appear before the jury. The presentation should also include a proper business model/the feasibility of the solution.

NOTE: The pitch should be convincing and self-explanatory, a benchmark for the qualification to the next round.
