THE ROAD AHEAD

WSE in 2019, as the second edition of the show, will see region-wise WSE EXPOS to aid start-ups to come on board and participate in various activities of interest at the grass root level. The cities, in which these 4 WSE EXPO's will be held, have been chosen with regards to proximity of the location to emerging and established start-up hubs. Various schemes within each of these events such as pitch competitions, investor meet and funding assistance program, hackathons, awards etc have been introduced to assist Ideators in obtaining resources and guidance to achieve the breakthrough they will be looking for.

The best of every region-wise series will confluence in the WSE GRAND FINALE, which is expected to happen sometime during December 2019. Winners of several competitions (pitch, hackathon etc.), at these regional events, will also meet each other for a final showdown of their skills at the Grand Finale. The winners taking home the BIG PRIZE will be awarded during the same event.
