The #IFDIChallenge2 received 797 entries that aim to create a Digital India through innovative solutions and solve existing problems faced by her citizens. Out of these, 20 shortlisted participants presented ideas to a panel of experts and at the end of this phase, top 10 selected teams entered the accelerator phase wherein they are eligible to receive grants of up to Rs. 3 lakh and mentoring to build Minimum Viable Products (“MVPs”) based on Intel® architecture.

The top ten innovations in #IFDIChallenge2 center around Smart City, Agricultural Solutions, Healthcare and Sustainability.

The accelerator phase includes a residential week-long boot camp at T-Hub, Hyderabad led by GBI, T-Hub and USMAC with mentoring from experts such as Pradeep Lokhande (Rural Marketing) and Ashish Deshpande (Design Thinking) as part of Intel led #LetsTalkInnovation series of webcasts and Intel technical specialists. Teams will build their MVPs out of their locations with virtual team management and mentoring by a panel of experts from Government, Intel, T-hub, Industry and GBI. This phase will culminate with a Demo Day at Hyderabad on 9th February, 2016 wherein teams will present their prototypes to a panel of experts. At the end of this phase, up to top three teams will be identified to move into the next round of the #IFDIChallenge2.
