Different Competitions for School Students

3300+ students from 250+ schools across 52 different cities of India participated in IFT 2019, clearly showing that the spirit of entrepreneurship is wide awake in young minds! This competition was free of cost to schools & students at all levels, and was entirely supported by generous sponsors who believed in the same entrepreneurship vision. Using Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations as a framework, the competition urged school students to create business solutions to reduce poverty, provide quality education, improve sanitation and increase nutritious intake.

On 10th Feb 2019, the grand finale for India's Future Tycoons was held at CoWrks, Worli. ENpower selected Co Wrks as venue partners so that students get an opportunity to see how new age startups work. India's Future Tycoons provided a much-needed platform for young teens to build on their innovative ideas & provide solutions that can change the world. Inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, students have combined social enterprise with business acumen to come up with compelling venture ideas.

It was a big day for everyone including the participating students, schools, parents and the empower team. It was not an ordinary finale event but an unforgettable experience and an epitome of entrepreneurship ecosystem for school children where they got an opportunity to interact with industry experts, venture capitalists, startup owners and success stories.

The Grand Finale celebrated this spirit of entrepreneurship as the chosen teams pitched their ideas to the grand jury, sustained their critical evaluation, convinced them about their venture ideas & competed for the top prizes! All the 12 teams presented their outstanding ideas to the jury and the audience one by one. Entrepreneur for High School Students

It was no doubt that India's Future Tycoon's stellar finalists made it really strenuous for the juries to decide who is going to take home the prestigious IFT 2019 Trophy. The audience present including parents, educators, industry veterans were wowed by the sheer amount of thinking process and creativity of these young and curious minds. After the assessment, the final decision by the juries was announced, and we have the first India's Future Tycoons, who have been featured above.
