Start-O-Sphere: Annual Start-Up Summit at IIM Kozhikode [Feb 1-2]: Registrations Open


E-Cell is proud to organize the fifth edition of the Annual National Entrepreneurship Summit of IIM Kozhikode, “Start-O-Sphere” supported by IIMK LIVE, a business incubator of the institute. This event is one of the biggest meet-ups of startups and investors in south India aimed at supporting startup founders by providing networking, mentorship, and fundraising opportunities.

This event will not only provide a golden opportunity to the budding entrepreneurs but will also allow students to learn more about the burgeoning world of start-ups right from the horse’s mouth.

The last edition of Start-O-Sphere was a success with more than 250 startups competing out of which the best ones made their pitches and showcased their innovative products to about 25 VC and angel investors considering them to fund. The next edition which will be the 5th Edition is poised to become bigger and better with an estimated potential investment fund base of about three crore rupees combined.


  1. The summit will see a host of activities ranging from a Startup & Investors connect where investors share what they see while investing to mega-events like Start-Up Fair in which only selected 40 startups from across India are invited to IIMK Campus to setup Stalls and present their idea to the investors and IIMK community.
  2. Followed by Pitchers in which the top startups shortlisted by Investors during startup fair get a chance to pitch, negotiate, and get funded.
  3. Furthermore, events like Bouncer extend an opportunity to the budding entrepreneurs to bounce their idea/business model to ‘industry gurus’ and seasoned IIM K professors and thus refine their approach.
  4. Along with this, a full-day hands-on workshop on entrepreneurship covering almost all aspects of starting up a business makes Start-O-Sphere a complete package for any entrepreneurial enthusiasts.
