Centre for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE) has announced the launch of the GrowthCamps and is inviting applications from start-ups across the country to participate in the programmes designed across four different verticals.
CIIE GrowthCamps are a series of sector specific two-day programs each anchored by a corporate partner which is a market leader in either of the product domains – Financial Tech, Cloud, Analytics and Internet of Things.
“The program promotes the advancement of start-ups by providing them with the unique opportunity to collaborate with an anchor corporate that has time and interest to act as a mentor for start-up organizations. It includes one-on-one time with senior staff covering product strategy reviews, sales channel enablement, and a CXO dinner all intended to further the development of participating start-ups,” said the company’s official press release.
It is open for all, and any startup looking to participate in the GrowthCamp is encouraged to apply to pitch. The startups can be from the following domains: Cloud infrastructure, Cloud computing, Enterprise mobility, Cloud virtualization, Fintech, Payments, Internet of Things, EGovernance, Aadhar, Analytics, Telecom, and Adtech.
"We are excited about the upcoming GrowthCamps, and we have been seeing tremendous interest within the startup community. The companies chosen to participate in the upcoming batch will have a unique opportunity to showcase their products to decision-makers from leading companies in their fields,” said Maneesh Bhandari, Director, Pune Operations at CIIE.
The CIIE scouting events will take place in 6 cities including Bengaluru, Pune, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad and Delhi. A CIIE team will travel to pick 6 start-ups from the mentioned cities to interview on spot for 10 minutes, and will then select the most promising startups that will go to Pune to participate in the GrowthCamps and showcase their product. In addition, startups get a chance to be connected to CIIE-IIM Ahmedabad’s global community and learn more about worldwide opportunities.
