Start-ups selected for InnoTrek 2018 will be required to pay a non-refundable and non-transferable InnoTrek Delegate Fee of INR 70,800 including taxes. The InnoTrek delegate fee covers the cost of group bus travel to/from the delegation hotel and venues on all four days, event day meals that are planned in the delegation schedule and any delegation venue entry fees etc.
Delegates are responsible for booking and paying for their own international travel, hotel accommodation, daily breakfast and any meals not part of the delegation schedule.
The actual events, venue fees and many local expenses are subsidized by NASSCOM to help make this as accessible as possible to start-up founders. If TiECON is part of the schedule, the cost of participating is separate and will be directly payable to TiE Silicon Valley. All in all, a total expense of approximately INR 2.5 lakh will be required for this trip.
How many people per start-up?
The program is open to the founder of each team.
