About

“Never invest in a business you can’t understand”

The only thing going up today is inflation and just earning will not suffice your needs. To counter that you need a good risk appetite, a critical understanding, strategic planning or to sum up investment. Skills ranging from communication to research, creativity to problem-solving is what a person must have to make a mark in the investor’s mind. To foster the emphasis on innovation and raising money, Youth conclave 2022 presents “Invaso”, as an attempt to help young minds understand the process of building an idea and raising money.

Round 1: Ace Your Brain

A shortlisting quiz consisting of logical and real-life situation-based questions to test your decisiveness. The top 35 teams will be shortlisted after this quiz for the further rounds.

Round 2: Mix N' Match

The second round of Invaso, Mix N’ Match, is all about bringing out the non-conventional innovative side of entrepreneurship. In this round, you’ll have to think of two already existing products to create a new hybrid product, which can serve a better purpose. Eg: Combining a skateboard with a stroller might sound weird but it would make the life of super busy mothers very convenient and energy-saving. Every team will have to think of a hybrid product and propose a 2-slide plan for their product, including their purpose, price, promotion(tagline, product name, etc), and target audience. No technical details like product design, feature specifications must be included in the slides. The best 12 ideas will be shortlisted for the final fundraising round, Product Gallery.

Round 3: Product Gallery

Pre-round Task:   The descriptions of every team's idea and their contacts will be shared with the rest of the teams. They’ll have to make a thorough analysis of each product, find the loopholes and be ready with their questions to shoot on the peer teams.
Crowdfunding Rounding:   Every team will get a chance to pitch their product in front of the crowd (other teams) to raise funds for their idea. After every pitch, there will be a Q&A round where one person from each team will ask questions to the presenting team.
One by one each team will pitch their product in front of the other teams. Once all the pitching is done, all the teams will have to rank the other teams and nominate the top 3 teams for the final crowdfunding of 12k, 9k, and 6k, respectively
