To offer mentorship and give young and budding entrepreneurs a platform to develop their ideas and find early market place, Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM) and Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M) have tied up to collaborate together and take the initiative ahead.
On the ‘Startup Innovation Day’ which will be conducted in collaboration with Mahindra and Mahindra, start-ups can pitch for the opportunity to showcase themselves and their projects to the team members of the country’s leading manufacturing company.
Through the initiative, potential start-ups will be selected to work and collaborate with Mahindra and Mahindra.
KSUM CEO Saji Gopinath said in the release that the collaboration with Mahindra and Mahindra was a significant opportunity. “M&M’s expertise in diverse sectors ranging from agriculture to defence would enable capable startups to develop their ideas and find early market place,” he added.
The idea is to test the water first by giving these start-ups Proof of Concepts (POCs) to execute initially. After the successful execution of these POCs, the companies will engage with them on a larger scale.
Applications will be accepted till October 5.
Recently, Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM) has come up with a financial aid project, Idea Day in order a fund for innovative projects, ideas and products from college campuses.
