Startup Fair is the biggest national convention for young entrepreneurs being 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.
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.
