Bootcamp Learnings: Design Thinking, Entrepreneurship & more
Major takeaways for the duo from the bootcamp have been learning about strategies to pitch their idea properly and the qualities needed for a startup founder. Talking about the valuable mentorship they received from IIT professors, the team said, “During our bootcamp we learned the importance of the qualities a startup founder needs to have and how to pitch your idea. We never knew that there were so many ways to pitch your idea to investors.”
Converting Learnings into Insightful Actions
Learnings from the IIT Delhi bootcamp helped team TEG take their idea ahead in terms of design, technology, and business model. We asked the duo about implementing these learnings in their project, “We were confused about how to differentiate our product from the existing products in the market. The professors conducted great sessions on how you can differentiate yourself from your competitors. We learned how to make our product more efficient and user-friendly.”
Gameplan for Winning Solve For Tomorrow Season 2
Now that the finale date is nearing, the team is rigorously preparing for their finale pitch. What about their winning strategy? It’s pretty simple, they added, “We are trying to make as much progress as possible and prepare the best pitch possible with the help of our mentors.”
