Eureka! - An International Business Plan Competition

Aimed at encouraging people all around the world to unleash their inventive potential and flesh out ideas spanning multiple dimensions, Eureka! is Asia's largest B-Plan competition as acknowledged independently by CNN and Thomson Reuters.

Designed to emulate the process of the growth of an idea towards a full-fledged startup. Eureka! prides itself on providing a 360 degree, holistic experience in the 5 month period that it spans. Right from acknowledging that your idea has potential, to writing a B-Plan, and pitching in front of an investor- this platform has it all !

Over the 15 years of its existence, Eureka has grown from a competition in which 50 teams competed for INR 50,000 , to a competition which sees over 6000 entries competing for prizes worth INR 4.5 Million with excellent networking opportunities in India and the Silicon Valley !

Eureka! now serves not only as a launch pad for budding ideas, but now has moved to be recognised as a platform for intensive learning of the entrepreneurial ecosystem by interactions and mentorship from the leaders of this field.

With the vision of promoting both business and social innovations, we follow two tracks:

  • Eureka! Business
  • Eureka! Social

Eureka! Business

The trademark of Eureka!, the business track of Eureka! is aimed at helping ideas develop into businesses that have the potential to revolutionize the world.

Eureka! Social

Now into its 4th successful year, Eureka! Social aims at helping build innovative enterprises and technology to aid the strata at the bottom of the pyramid and/or build a greener tomorrow. With associations like NSEF, Ashoka and Villgro, Eureka! Social runs as a parallel side track to Eureka! Business.

Intel Technology Challenge  

To champion the importance of novel and innovative technology and to emphasize the role of an groundbreaking discovery in addressing the problems spreading various domains, we present the finalists with an opportunity to feature in the Intel APEC Challenge.

IIT Bombay B-Plan of the year Award

Instated to foster the spirit of entrepreneurship and business acumen amongst the youth of the institute, the IIT Bombay B-Plan of the Year award is awarded to the best entry from IITB.

Touching The Lives Award  

Core vision of this award is to celebrate the true entrepreneurial spirit in the larger context of the socio-economic well-being of the country as well as to promote the ideas that have promise to challenge the existing barriers of growth.

About Us

Our Vision

Innovation and entrepreneurship are the wheels that steer the world into a brighter future. The world economy will tumble upon itself if new innovations are not reaped every day. Great ideas result into great undertakings which pave the way for glaring success. It is easier said than done because the process of realizing an idea needs a deep understanding of the world around, and an innate preparedness to cope with failures - an inevitable part of enterprising. In order to facilitate this vision of promoting entrepreneurship in India and the world, E-Cell organizes Eureka!, an international business plan competition.

What is Eureka!?

Eureka! provides a platform for potential ideas and early stage start-ups to evaluate their plan in the risk-free environment of a competition. It aims to bridge the gap between ideas and the realization of an enterprise. Eureka! has been independently recognized as Asia's largest Business Plan Competition by CNN and Thomson Reuters. Support from organisations like Mumbai Angels, IAN, Nexus Ventures and TiE makes Eureka! a networking hub for entrepreneurs, mentors and investors.

What make us unique?

Writing a business plan is an essential activity for startups and people looking to startup because it helps them analyze their own business from various angles, organize it, seek funding and hire new people. We recognize this need and have structured the competition to suit to the educational needs of the participants. The competition goes on for 5 months (September-January). During this period, participants receive extensive mentoring, which enables them to refine their b-plan multiple times during the competition cycle. Some of our past mentors and judges include Satish Kataria( M.D., SpringBoard Ventures), V.S.S. Mani (Founder of Justdial), Paul Basil (Founder & CEO, Villgro), Sasha Mirchandani (Co-Founder, Mumbai Angels).
The competition is structured to promote both business as well as social innovation which is why 2 parallel tracks have been instated:
  • Eureka! Business
  • Eureka! Social
Eureka! Social, into its fourth year, is an initiative taken with a vision to foster innovative technology and business models aiming to add value to the people at the bottom of the pyramid and/or help build a greener tomorrow. It has been extensively supported by renowned social organizations such as The National Social Entrepreneurship Forum (NSEF) and Dasra, and will run as a parallel track to Eureka! Business.

Elevator pitch video submission: 25th Dec,2014

All the Semifinalists have to submit an elevator pitch which will have a brief description of your idea. The technical requirements of the video will be posted/ emailed to the participants. These videos will be uploaded on the YouTube channel of E-Cell IITB. These videos have two fold motives:

  • If selected in the finalist declaration of 4th Jan, this video will be screened in the final round.
  • If not selected in the finals, you will be given a chance to get into the finals via a Wildcard entry selected by Facebook and YouTube votes. This contest will run from 5th Jan to 11th Jan. We will declare the winner of the Wild card entry on 12th Jan,2015 .
  • There will be only one winner, and after that entry becomes a finalist, the Timeline of the originally declared finalists will apply to this entry too.

NOTE: This elevator pitch is to assess how well you can convey your idea to a layman and is not with the intention of judging the ‘investibility' of your startup. So it'll be a good idea to keep the language you use very simple, which anybody can understand.

TIPS FOR ELEVATOR PITCHING

  1. Be Concise: An elevator pitch is a clear, concise and well-practiced description of your company. It must be delivered in the time it would take to ride up an elevator – in other words, no longer than 120 seconds. That's time for about 300-450 words.
  2. Solve a Problem: Avoid sounding like a solution in search of a problem. Explain how your unique solution fills a “must have” need. If you aren't solving a problem or filling a need, you're in for a tough sell.
  3. Tell Them What They Want to Hear: Describe your product or service and its benefits succinctly. Depending on your audience, you may also have to:
    • define and size the market
    • explain how you're going to make money
    • tell who is behind the company and
    • Frame the competitive landscape and your advantage in it.
  4. Speak in Plain English: Talk in tangibles, not abstractions, throughout your pitch. Bring it down to the man on the street. Even if your product is complex, you'll lose your audience if you use MBA-speak or technobabble.
  5. Grab the Listener's Attention: You might try developing a tagline to pique interest, something enticing that captures the imagination like "It's not TV. It's HBO". Or, make an analogy between you and a well-known company. "We're the Yahoo for teens" is a good, short way to say that you're trying to create a search engine/directory/web portal for teenagers.
  6. Ask Qualifier Questions: To ensure that you're targeting the right person with the right message, ask a couple of questions.
  7. Tailor Your Pitch to Your Audience: To investors, the pitch focuses on your team and how you plan to make money. To customers, your focus should be on the problem you can solve for them. Potential partners want to know what you're building, why it's important, and why you're going to be a success.
  8. Show Your Passion: A good pitch makes your heart race. Show the fire in the belly and your passion to succeed.
  9. Conclude With a Call to Action: Always end your pitch with a call to action, but recognize that different audiences prompt different requests. You might ask friends and acquaintances if they know anyone who would be interested, anyone who's working on something similar, or anyone who's working in the investment world.
