Out of nine hotspots, IBM has already selected startups from five centers viz. Kochi, HyderabadChennai, Pune, Vizag and Ahmedabad being the sixth.

After getting selected from all the nine cities, the startups will compete in regional finals that will be held in Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore.

The event will culminate with a final showdown wherein top six startups will pitch to eminent VCs (e.g. Nexus Ventures, Intel Ventures, Seedfund, Reservoir Ventures and Ravi Gururaj) in Bangalore.
