About The Program

The Indian Institute of Management-Visakhapatnam and Moonpreneur are jointly running the Entrepreneurship & Leadership Development Program (ELDP) for the students from 300+ colleges in Andhra Pradesh.
The selected students from this program will get an opportunity to incubate their ideas at IIMV FIELD for nine months.
IIMV Foundation for Incubation Entrepreneurial Learning and Development (IIMV FIELD) is the Incubation and Startup Hub of IIM Visakhapatnam, which started in 2018. IIMV FIELD has its center in Visakhapatnam – a Smart City, an aspirational district, and an industrial hub in the state of Andhra Pradesh. As of now, IIMV FIELD is one of the fastest-growing incubators in the country.
IIMV reached out to the colleges leveraging the APSCHE platform, inviting nominations from each of these colleges.
The ELDP program witnessed an overwhelming response as 2,000 students registered for the program. Out of these, we shortlisted 163 students. We divided the students into 26 teams to provide an effective learning environment for them. Each team had five-seven students.
As a prelude to this program, these students underwent a one-month certificate program titled 7 Habits of Effective Teens by Franklin Covey Institute.
This program was fully sponsored by Silicon-Valley based non-profit organization Fortune Fund. The program will come to an end at the upcoming PitchFest where each team will pitch their ideas in front of global leaders.
The selected students will get an opportunity to Incubate their ideas at IIMV Field for nine months. During the nine months at IIMV FIELD, the participants would have access to:
– Incubator physical and intellectual resources
– Mentorship & networking support
– Mentor classes, Workshops, Knowledge sessions & Networking events
– Merit-based prototyping fund
– Media coverage & investor access (demo-day pitch event), among others.
Congratulations to the team E-Waste Collection on bagging the 1st place, team Smash It! for 2nd place, and teams Carnal Masters & Diet Snacks for sharing the 3rd place in the Moonpreneur’s ELDP PitchFest organized in collaboration with IIMV-FiELD and powered by S2Tech and Fortune Fund!
