India's student-run start-up accelerator Conquest provides 10 lakh equity-less cash to the winners of the 17th edition of Conquest
BITSians successfully hosted the 17th edition of Conquest, India’s student-run start-up accelerator. Backed by Canara Bank VC and Icertis, the 6-week accelerator program culminated in a high-impact Demo Day on 1st August. The event provided promising start-ups with incubation possibilities, networking with industry leaders, and funding opportunities to navigate a highly competitive and challenging start-up environment.
This year, it is pertinent to note that 30 companies were chosen from a total of 1,000 registrants to attend one-on-one mentorship sessions over a week, meeting industry professionals in design, UI/UX, product management, growth, operations, sales, and marketing. Simultaneously, a competitive pitching session was also organized for the Top 15 start-ups to help develop their pitching skills. Representatives from India’s top VCs, including Arali Ventures, Antler, and Stellaris Venture Partners, graced the session and shared their in-depth knowledge and comprehensive experience with entrepreneurs. They asked start-up owners hard-hitting and relevant questions to prepare them for real-world business challenges.
