So, if you are passionate about startups, tech, or using your skills to design innovative products and services that millions of people will use, you should apply”.

"I am really looking forward to Innovate Delhi”, said Dr. Ponnurangam Kumagraguru, Assistant Professor at IIIT-D and co-founder of Innovate Delhi. “We are really fortunate that IIIT-D and Stanford’s SEED Institute have been able to generously support the Innovate Delhi program. It is a wonderful opportunity for young Indians that are passionate about entrepreneurship to learn from venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and faculty as well as win some great prizes. If you have innovative ideas or have ever thought of creating your own startup, we encourage you to apply.”

“We plan to accept 300 participants, so you will get to learn from literally hundreds of other smart and creative people”, said Rem Koning, co-founder of Innovate Delhi. “The amazing connections participants will make over the three-weeks of the academy will help them in all their future entrepreneurial journeys.”
