What is India’s Future Tycoons

What is India’s Future Tycoons

India’s Future Tycoons is the country’s first-ever entrepreneurship search and mentoring platform exclusively for young adults. It is a nationwide hunt for ideas that can build a better future.

If we empower young adults to build perspectives about real-life ‘problems’ and create sustainable solutions, they demonstrate great potential to build a better tomorrow. We encourage them to unlock their true potential by nurturing an entrepreneurial mindset. We wish to re-imagine a new India where social problems are being tackled innovatively.

India’s Future Tycoons is a unique platform that inspires young minds (13-17 years) to think beyond the obvious, empathize with problems, converting them into opportunities and build solutions that can lead to venture creation.

Young adults not only get a chance to work on their ideas, but also get exposure to an intense Bootcamp and showcase their venture ideas to the startup community and industry veterans at the Grand Finale.
