With a view to scout talented innovators from the campuses across the state and transform them as technology entrepreneurs, Kerala Startup Mission hosts a yearly pitching event, IDEA FEST.

IDEA FEST provides Innovators an opportunity to present their ideas or college projects, which can be converted to a practical real world solution, in front of an elite panel and the teams which are shortlisted by the panel are offered grants based on the development stage and innovative value of their ideas. This year for the first time, Idea Fest is open to student as well as faculty innovators.

This year we will identify 1000 innovators from the campuses and will be given an opportunity to attend customised startup bootcamps which are curated according to their requirements and out of these 1000, 100 best ideas will be funded through "Let a 1000 Flowers Bloom"

These 1000 flowers (Innovative Startups) will be supported, handheld and monitored.

Let the 1000 Flowers Bloom for a better tomorrow!!!
