Startup Fair is the most prominent national convention for young entrepreneurs organized by IIT (BHU) Varanasi in association with MCIIE. It features a plethora of events including guest lectures, elevator pitch, workshops, Networking Meet and panel discussions.

VISION

Our goal is to give something to the Startup community by introducing emerging Startups to resources, mentorship, and investment opportunities. We are most interested in working with entrepreneurs using data management to solve public policy, human development, and business challenges. Architecting, analysing, and managing data efficiently is a significant challenge and a tremendous area of opportunity for new business innovation.
