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 certified independently by CNN and Thomas Reuters.
Designed to emulate the process of the growth of an idea to 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 14 years of its existence, Eureka has grown from a competition in which 50 teams compete for INR 50,000 , to a competition which sees over 5000 entries competing for prizes worth INR 4 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
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.
Now into its 3rd 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.
