What is PowerPlug Contest?

India’s first ever contest where we recognize early stage technology startups on a regular basis (the contest is supported by Sequoia Capital India). As an applicant, you would be up against the best startups in the country – and the people running them. You would have to come out all guns blazing to win this – and we are sure you would. The PowerPlug is a story you want to tell about yourself to the world and you should make sure the story is compelling to win you the coveted prize.

Goodies ?

As a startup, you get a lot of credibility/bragging rights + media coverage and an iPad2 (32GB/WiFi) as well (thanks to our partner Sequoia Capital India). And this is apart from all the VC calls and customer interest.

PowerPlug Contest Rules?

  • The contest is applicable for Indian Entrepreneurs.
  • An entrepreneur can apply for this contest only once in a quarter. Your entry is valid for 3 months.
  • The startup should be at least 6 months old and revenue making. If not revenue making, the startup should have pivoted the business model/product at least once.
  • The contest is open to Indian entrepreneurs across different industries/verticals (except for monthly themes).
  • In general, preference will be given to product startups as we believe that IP creation is the biggest value and core differentiator.
  • Final decision lies with Team.
  • The contest format will be revisited every quarter (and will be modified based on response from the entrepreneurial community).
  • The decision to fund (or not) rests squarely with Sequoia Capital and this contest serves no guarantee what so ever.
