Do you have an idea that you believe can change the world? If yes, then it is time to fill the rest of the world in. This can be the first step in turning your idea into a reality.
Kathmandu University is all set to host the Idea Hunt competition as part of IT MEET in Nepal, an annual mega tech event being organized at the university since 2006. Idea Hunt is a unique competition where the contestants are provided a platform to pitch their creative and innovative business ideas.
The contestants are required to pitch their idea in front of a panel of expert judges who based on the creativity, impact, feasibility of the idea will crown the winners.
The winners will be provided with the mentorship and resource to convert the idea from paper to a business.
The only skill each participant is required to have is a vivid imagination for proposing the idea and a strong business strategy.
This is an open competition, and anyone currently pursuing +2, Bachelors or Masters level, and even those currently working can apply for the competition. However, the idea should somehow make use of technology.
So, if you believe that you have an idea that can have a positive impact on the world, be sure to register. Your idea can be anything utilizing Technology as a key tool.
