The event was supported and powered by Nasscom 10000 Startups. The other partners in the event were NEN, EDC SRCC, Inc42 Magazine, University Express and Meraevents.

The biggest value proposition for startups was that they got an excellent platform in one of the premier league colleges of India, where they not just narrated their story, inspired these young chaps but also hired the best talents.
