On the first  day, the initial rounds of idea pitching would take place. The companies  pitch for a bounty. Pitches would get to the final level on the second  day and the best pitch would be rewarded afterwards. The startup  pitches are being judged according to a number of criteria.  Feasibility, marketability, prototype, etc are some of the criterion  being considered.

It is by keeping in mind the internship requirements of both companies  and students, the Internship drive is designed. Participation of about  1000-1500 students would give the companies a wide range to choose  from. Internship drive would happen in parallel with the pitching  event. About 30+  companies are expected to take part in the event  while close to 100-150 students would find internship opportunities.  At Startup summit, a number of investors, not less than thirty, are  expected to be present at the venue, which gives the students and  their ideas great opportunities to find investment and expand their  business.
