If chosen, you will be featured in the anniversary edition of Edex, the careers and youth supplement of The New Indian Express, and this will be widely circulated across our entire circulation network. It's a rock-solid 72 page edition that you'll love being a part of. Trust us.
We will also have a Start-Up summit where the 40 Under 40 will be celebrated and awarded. Plenty of big names, some great networking and, did we mention, an amazing experience. You can't ask for more.
Tick Talk: Inspired in 600 seconds: 5 Entrepreneurs will be invited to showcase their inspiring ideas and innovations within 10 minutes. This will be in a TEDx style format and will open the floor for robust interaction.
Keynote address and Town Hall: Top officials from the Ministry for Skill Development will be invited to detail their vision/achievements for 20 minutes and then field questions/discussion for another 20-30 minutes, in the same format as Barack Obama's Town Hall in New Delhi. Entrepreneurs, academics and students will be allowed to ask questions during this time.
Award ceremony: 40 entrepreneurs under the age of 40 will be feted during the event with brief descriptions of their achievements and why they deserve to be there. Last year's event had Supreme Court Judge Justice J Chelameswar as the chief guest and was well attended in Chennai.
