‘TATA First Dot, powered by NEN’ is launched, India’s first Student Start-up recognition and mentoring programme. Tata and NEN have developed TATA First Dot, powered by NEN, a strong national platform consisting of multiple strands, to support India’s youngest entrepreneurs. Last year, the inaugural First Dot competition and seminar, conceived and led by NEN Chennai E Leaders, far exceeded expectations: 140 student venture participants, and over 650 participants in event at SSN in January.
This year, TATA has partnered with NEN to create TATA First Dot, powered by NEN. The partnership with the TATA group is highly valuable and will help provide richer support to many more young entrepreneurs.
This multi-stage programme includes:
- Regional workshops
- National judged competition
- People’s choice competition
- 2 day conference including award event
- Ongoing mentoring programme for the competition winners.
