About Ideathon

Ideathon is a specially curated event that aims to help students generate innovative ideas. In addition, it is a platform to get the ideas validated and provides the skills and knowledge required to think entrepreneurially. Most importantly, this event is a gateway for teams to get preincubated in Nirmaan, with whom E-Cell IIT Madras collaborated to bring this event.

Getting started with Entrepreneurship

We are sure that many of our audience in the campus is struggling to get started with entrepreneurship even if they are interested in Entrepreneurship as well as the audience who have their own Ideas but just can’t find a point to start with them , or even if they started they backed out in the middle due to the lack of basic knowledge and entrepreneurial approach .
So, Let’s start before you are ready with Ideathon , an exclusive event of E-Cell for exclusive IIT Madras community.
Learning never dies, even if it's quarantine , so tighten your seat belts and get started with an awesome journey ahead.
