People's Choice Awards
The People’s Choice Awards are presented to five student startups that win the highest number of votes in the platform’s online public poll, running from October to November. The Awards are a fantastic opportunity for student entrepreneurs to build awareness and support for their ideas beyond their own campus and networks. Last year, for example, 415 startups registered over 79,000 votes of support on our website!
Winners of the People’s Choice Awards will be invited to the National Conference in Bangalore, where they will be recognized and provided an opportunity to pitch their ideas and startups to leading entrepreneurs, investors, experts, and national media.
