The Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode will organise the sixth edition of its annual National Entrepreneurship Summit ‘Start-O-Sphere’ on March 6 and 7.

The event is organised by IIMK Entrepreneurship Cell (E-Cell) team with the support of IIMK LIVE, its business incubator. The event aims to support start-ups by providing them an opportunity to network, get mentored and funded. Though this event will be held virtually due to Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, it will witness a wide variety of activities during these two days.

Debashis Chatterjee, Director IIM Kozhikode, said “StartOsphere is a marquee event of IIMK organised and conceptualised by the students of our Entrepreneurship Cell. It also attempts to evangelise entrepreneurship among the student community on campus and the greater community of entrepreneurs. It is delighting to see this meet getting bigger every year.”

The summit also witnesses events such as Bouncer which shall allow the budding entrepreneurs to validate their ideas from ‘Industry Gurus’ and seasoned IIMK professors which will help them to refine their approach. Horse’s Stable, a unique event will allow the students to understand how the start-up ecosystem works right from ideation stage to the pitch and funding stage through a virtual simulation.
