In this era of booming innovations and start-ups, we, The Big Idea Summit, have taken a step towards not only helping the youth develop their innovative ideas, but also towards giving them all the space they need to spread their wings and make their start-up the next big thing.
We understand that a lot comes into play when we talk about coming up with a idea. The venture of an innovator to develop himself into an entrepreneur requires equal support from both, investors and mentors. Hence, we take the utmost pride in bringing you a platform that brings in innovators, investors, mentors, all under one roof. Innovators will be given an opportunity to put forth their out-of-the-box ideas before investors, technocrats, government officials and leading mentors at a Pan-India level. The top 100 ideas filtered by experts and teams stand a chance to get a free stall and the necessary support to display their innovations in front of a huge audience. Applications for the same need to be done on our website www.thebigidea.in on or before 25th November 2018.

Treat The Big Idea Summit Exhibition as your own dais. Get along your uniquely created products and services and display them over our two-day event.
Registration details for the same will be put up when the event is around the corner.
After a thorough screening of the applications, the most deserving entrepreneur will be chosen who will have to submit a nominal fee one day prior to the exhibition.
The ideal end to the two-day event would be marked by the Business Symposium.
Conducted at a renowned hotel, The Business Symposium is a perfect package for our participants, including a panel discussion with some of the most imminent speakers, an award ceremony to acknowledge the best idea and the efforts of the best innovator, pitching of innovators to investors and ultimately, a gala dinner to call it a day.
The Big Idea Summit is introduced to bring an optimistic transformation in the life of start-ups across the country and gradually, the world. Come; join us to see how we together make it happen!
Why should a Innovator participate ?
The Big Idea Summit 2018 is designed especially for innovators bustling with ideas that are all set to change the society, the country and much more so, the world for the better. You’d be done and dusted with a business plan but the implementation would happen to take a backseat, because of lack of guidance, resources, either financially or otherwise and so on and so forth.
Being a firm believer in the fact that ideation without execution equals an idea wasted, we are here with a one-stop solution for all the innovators out there, who are in search of a guiding light to not only execute their ideas but also to make them the next big thing. So all you’ve got to do is give us an idea and we’ll mould it better than ever!
How would you characterise the present era in terms of the work style?
It’s a flurry of start-ups, in simple words. There has been an increase of job insecurity lately which has given rise to start-ups one wouldn’t even have a count of! And not just that, a lot of people switch from an employee to an entrepreneur considering the many pros of a start-up style environment. A start-up environment provides you with a chance to exercise greater flexibility, freedom and creativity as compared to a traditional office setting.
Having said that, a lot needs to be taken care of when you decide to take up the responsibility of launching a start-up. Not all start-ups succeed, mainly due a fall in the demand. If we begin to ponder upon the reasons that cause this, we’d realise that it’s because of the lack of uniqueness and novelty in the idea conceived by the entrepreneur. Hence, the task at the top of the priority list would always be developing an idea that is all set to turn heads.
