Every week, students were engaged in intensive sessions covering different aspects of startup creation and growth, led by the seasoned entrepreneurs-turned-mentors. The Venture Studio programme concluded with Pitch Day, where the selected students presented their startup ideas before a panel of distinguished institute alumni, including Vikram Gupta, founder and managing partner of IvyCap Ventures; Ruchira Shukla, head of South Asia for Venture Capital; Vivek Kumar, founder at Venture Garage; Ashish Padidar, partner at Bellwether; and Priyank Garg, managing partner of IAN Alpha Fund. The students briefed the panel about what they learned during the course and how they were going to apply it to their planned and already existing startups.
