Last year, I-Venture @ ISB in collaboration with AIM launched Atal Catalysts @ ISB to transform the Tinkerpreneurs into Digital Product Entrepreneurs aka Digipreneurs. Under this program, the top 100 ATL Tinkerpreneurs out of 9000​, received 1-1 mentoring from ISB alumni experts equipping the students with real-world business and entrepreneurial skills to develop an entrepreneurial mindset and take their products to market. Finally, the top 20 students/teams pitched their ideas to a panel of VCs and corporates at “The Big Pitch” where 10 students/teams received sponsorship to take their product to the market.
