Conquest has the sole aim of connecting investors to the most promising startups, and being organized completely by students, we have a soft corner for startups coming out of universities. Since 2004, we have been a part of the boost entrepreneurship has received in India, by organizing one of the most successful business plan competitions today. Five of our last seven winners started up within a year of winning the competition and some of them are successful startups today. And this year we have renovated our structure to suit the requirements of startups with minimum paperwork.
Thus, in the eighth edition to be held in 2011, we have startup showcases, startup lockup with investors and prospective customers, round tables and the business plan competition providing independence to choose your own mentors.
And with our promise of encouraging innovation, this year we also bring you the second ever Out-Of-Box conference in which well-known Indians from across the globe will share their experiences with India's most entrepreneurial audience on 20th and 21st aug 2011.
