The event had 2 rounds; 1st round was Elimination round which consisted of presenting and briefing the idea to the judges through the medium of visuals i.e. by drawing on the chart paper, for which students were given 1 day. It was a tough decisions that judges has to make about which team wil qualify for the next round and which will be eliminated but fortunately no team was eliminated and judges promoted everyone for the 2nd round which was all about pitching the ideas to the judges, where judges were suppose to act as venture capitalists and teams were asked to persuade judges for funding by explaining all their strategies, be it marketing, finance, management structure & operations and many more for their ideas.
