IdeaStorm is a month-long program that aims to develop Idea Generation, Validation, and Problem-Solving Mindset among the IITM community from scratch through online interactive sessions by various Entrepreneurs, Startup Professionals, Industry Experts, etc.
This program will definitely help you take a step from zero to one by analyzing various real-time problems, generating new ideas, and discovering the business potential of those ideas based on extensive research and frameworks to get onboarded on Nirmaan, the pre-incubation cell of IIT Madras.
We believe that each person has the innovation element inside them; it's just a matter of fact when to realize it and start looking for problems with a broader perspective; hence Innovators are the ones who have this urge to develop a problem identification mindset and generate new innovative ideas.
An implementor's mindset is an essential trait for any asp. entrepreneur/problem-solver, builders are the ones who have ideas to work upon and are sometimes stuck on the question of "What should I do after getting an idea?
Walk out with a validated idea
Develop an entrepreneurial mindset
Specially curated sessions by industry experts
Peer to peer validation of ideas and networking
Opportunity to get incubated under Nirmaan

The participants will have to submit the onboarding application of Nirmaan, which will be made after an exhaustive 4-weeks of knowledge transfer and helping exercises.
At the end of the program, we will have an offline session wherein participants will have to pitch their ideas to all the other participants, and therein they can look for feedback, suggestions, and team members too!
