IMSSA holds the pride in organizing one of the most successful inter university hackathons – hackX, for three consecutive years. This year hackX will unfold its fourth successive chapter as hackX 2019 by revamping the ordinary hackathon into an Innovative Startup Challenge. This allows more refined solid startups to emerge through the industrial level product development guidance provided.
hackX 2019 is open to all undergraduates; 30 teams will be selected to an Initial Pitch of their Ideas (hackX – ideaX) after a thorough evaluation of the proposals submitted. 13 finalists including the top 10 teams selected from ideaX and top 03 teams selected by an internal Ideasprint held within the Department of Industrial Management.
The finalists will be given a month(04 weeks) to develop and implement their innovative ideas. During this period, individual Mentors will be allocated per team to help and guide the them in development. Additional to the mentoring support a Technical Workshop and a Business Workshop will be held to support the teams in grooming their ideas into worthy Startups.
The finalists will subsequently pitch their ideas to an expert panel of judges together with a product demonstration, through which the winners will be chosen. The event will also be graced by Investors interested in funding new Startups.
