The Qualcomm® Design in India Challenge, in association with NASSCOM, has set out to discover the best and brightest product design and development companies in the country working on innovative technology that has implications in agriculture, smartphones, IoT/wearables, environment protection/clean technology, and more. Up to 10 companies will be shortlisted by March 2016, each of which will win $10,000 in prize money.

What’s in it for you as a startup?

Up to 10 companies will be shortlisted by March 2016, each of which will win $10,000 in prize money. That’s just the beginning. These companies will then be invited to the Qualcomm® Innovation Lab in Bangalore, where their ideas will be nurtured and incubated over six months.

Qualcomm® promises to provide mentoring and guidance to each shortlisted company to help them take their product to a stage where it is a viable and scalable proposition.

What’s more, Qualcomm® has in-house experts to provide the chosen startups all the required guidance on protecting their intellectual property rights as they further develop their product and make it ready for the market.
