KickStart <http://kickstart.in/> is partnering with CIIE at IIM-A for the
iAccelerator Program, in line
with its objective of fostering and promoting entrepreneurship. KickStart
believes
that this is an excellent way of taking the first step for entrepreneurship
and will
support the iAccelerator by bringing in its community resources.

iAccelerator <http://www.ciieindia.org/?page_id=92> is a short duration (3
months to be precise) incubation program for
IT Professionals and Students from across the country. It is a residential
program
and you will be paid a stipend of 8K per month to sustain in Ahmedabad.

The first week will be more of sessions on Entrepreneurship, focussing on IT
and
how to start out. The sessions will be taken by IIM-A Professors and the
Biggies
of the Indian IT Industry.

The consecutive weeks will be more of working on the Project Idea and
Mentorship
Sessions from the biggies of the Industry like Microsoft, NASSCOM,
Kuruvindum
and Kickstart. Not to forget Networking with the best brains in IT and
Entrepreneurial
Community.

The students of IIM-A will be helping the teams to commercialize their
product in the
third month of the program, get traction for the company and get funding to
expand. It
is an earnest effort to replicate YCombinator model, which is popular in the
west.
