IFLA 2018 JHARKHAND

INTRODUCTION

In the last few years, the number of start-ups in India has surged. Today, India has more significant start-ups than ever before - home to 10 unicorns. In terms of the ‘number of firms’, India is the third-largest start up ecosystem in the world. Studies indicate that the country’s rapidly growing startup ecosystem could produce at least 50 more in the near future.

India’s new age start-ups are solving big problems for Indians in India. Some of them might even go on to set the bar for the rest of the world in innovation, but achieving the initial goal of start-ups – scaling up and growing quickly across borders is far from plain sailing. IFLA intends to bridge that gap.

IFLA competition is being positioned as a "Battle of Original Start-ups" with an objective to open up beyond campuses, students & businesses and provide showcasing and mentorship opportunities to the young, future leaders and entrepreneurs who have brilliant and original ideas on their mind and the passion to transform these ideas into business models.

IFLA, in its current avatar, has been an annual program at INFOCOM Kolkata for the past two years. This year we are expanding our horizon and opening our doors to start-ups from other major cities in eastern India – to give “original business ideas” a much bigger platform to showcase and grow into a success story for digital India.

The Event: An Original Business Ideas competition.
