Once the application deadline is reached, all the submitted applications will be internally evaluated by the I-Venture @ ISB team. Shortlisted ideas will be notified and provided with further instructions and details regarding their participation in the next phase of the program.
The applications will be shortlisted based on Technical Feasibility, Market Awareness, Value Proposition, and Scaling Potential.
The potential ideas which are not shortlisted will be shared with our pool of ecosystem partners and enablers. They will then onboard the teams with respect to their preference and help them in their product development journey.
The shortlisted teams will be taught about different funding opportunities available to the students and the I-Venture @ ISB team will help them to write for these grants. Also, these teams will be recommended by us to our partnered organizations who fund early stage innovators.
