As they say, 'catch them when they are young'. Precisely, that is the whole idea behind the Next Startup. The Next Startup encourages entrepreneurial talent and innovative spirit among the current 12th standard students all over the country. As India is moving to prove itself as one of the top entrepreneurial countries in the world, the Next Startup is a small step in this direction by Sharda University which is going to give potential budding entrepreneurs the necessary platform to pitch their ideas and receive mentoring and funding support.
The Next Startup contest would be run in following phases:
First step, for participating in this contest the 12th standard appearing students will have to Apply in the given form, wherein they will have to explain their Business Ideas. The Business Ideas under the Next Startup have primarily been categorised into four aspects namely: Science, Creative, Business and Social.
As a second step to the Next Startup, the applications would be vetted by experts and the prospective students would then be selected. The selected students would be offered scholarship amounting up to Rs 40 Lacs on admission to Sharda University's Undergraduate Program.
Finally, they would be enrolled in the Incubator Program of the University popularly called as the Syncubator Program from the first year of their Undergraduate studies.
