Ms. Kanika Bhalla (PGP05 student) has received “ YES ASPIRE to Innovate 2015 Scholarship” Award on
March 19, 2015.
Another IIM-R student proved his mettle by winning a business plan competition held by the prestigious IE business school. Raghuram Belur, a PGP03 student won the runner’s up prize. The competition was open to students and alumni of only few IIM’s and IIT’s.
Raghuram presenting his business plan
The participants had to present their business plans to venture capitalists. The first round was held at the participant’s college. The winners of the campus rounds were then flown to Mumbai to present in front of a grand jury. The business plan was required to have a clear concept of the business, the feasibility analysis, the investment needed etc. The participants were expected to prepare a short presentation and detailed report on their business plan. Besides the participant presentations, there were also discussions on securing funding for business plans by Mumbai Angels.
Receiving the award
Raghuram’s business plan was for an android app developed by him called sidekick. It is an android application in the engagement app space which acts as both a TV remote and guide. The app bridges a gap in the TV and remote viewing experience. Sidekick has been featured in the ‘Next Big Online Idea’ show on NDTV Profit & at the Techcircle Runway held at New Delhi.
Raghuram brought home the award despite juggling his own startup as well as academics. A manager in every sense of the word!
