Winning Ideas That Make Business Sense
At MET, students are not only provided the corporate quasi environment to sharpen their managerial skills, but are also nurtured to explore the entrepreneur in them. That's the reason why MET students occupy coveted positions in the corporate world, besides being successful entrepreneurs.The selection of two outstanding business ideas mooted by the MMS students of the MET Institute of Management stand testimony to this perfect blend of innovation and business acumen. These ideas selected by venture capitalists for funding worth millions of rupees was the reward earned by the students on winning the challenge posed by Young Ideas Forum (www.youngideas.in). This forum was established to give young entrepreneurs in the country an opportunity to gain access to funding, partners and experience to start or grow a business.
The first team of students comprising Manali Phanse, Shruti Pillai, Nisha Prabhu and Radheya Prabhutendulkar presented the idea of a Quick Charging Power Bank for cellphones, titled 'SuperChargers'. The second team of Prithvi Pujari, Natasha Rajadhyaksha, Manasi Raut, Harsh Raval, Avinash Rogye and Binish Rupani presented the innovative proposal called 'Protegenie'. Selected as Task Force finalists from MET, these teams went ahead to the Young Ideas Incubation Forum, having cleared 3 rounds of selection, superseding over 150 business ideas, from some of the best B-schools across India. After a screening process of over three months, five business ideas, including both teams of MET were chosen as startups, under the aegis of Young Ideas Ventures Pvt. Ltd.
