Blitz –
There are a hundred challenges in setting up a start-up, a thousand more in running one. But what exactly are these and how does one tackle them? It is a flavor of this that Blitz promises the participants by a 2-round journey through the life of a start-up. The problem statements are real-life scenarios given and judged by real a start-up. All this, while ensuring you address the concerns of each of your stakeholders - the customers you serve, the suppliers who serve you, the investors who believe in you, the employees who work for you. At the end of it, you can experience what a day in the shoes of one leading a start-up feels like, through this battle. The judgement of solution is based on the viability and efficiency of the solution.

Strange Things –
An opportunity to usher and display your creative skills and compete with teams across the nation. Strange Things will bring out your potential to think of the impossible, be it a lightsaber that cleans your house or a mop that flies you to the future, and make it the king of the market. Participants have to envision impractical or infeasible products with paradoxical properties or uses. These products are encouraged to be impossible to execute (brownie points for humor). If your inventions are found worthy and worthless, you'll be advanced to a new dimension. Be prepared as it'd be tougher than coming up with another product, and this is where your skills will really be tested. So prepare your wits for the ultimate battle of impossible innovation.

Pitch and snitch –
Bring out your boardroom suits and this time don’t think everything will be black and white as you’ll be in the trenches as the best of the businessmen are sometimes. Pitch 'n' Snitch is an event where we give you plausible ethical dilemmas faced by businesses and see how well you sail through it in accordance with the stakeholders concerned and if you do so well then in the 2nd round you will have to impress, defend and sabotage to get what you want.
