E-Cell SGSITS conducted Ideathon along with Department of social science and CIDI.

Ideathon, as the name suggests, is about generating, developing, and evaluating ideas for launching innovative and viable new ventures. It entails a process of discovery designed to lead towards the creation of dynamic and impactful enterprises, whether business or social ventures. The event was conducted in teams of 2-4 students. More than 100 students registered in the event “Ideathon”. Shortlisted 26 teams participated in the event conducted on 22nd February from 11 am to 5 pm. Top three startups were selected and the winning teams got the perks of incubation and mentoring from Startup cell and CIDI. The team that stood first (AASSAN) along with his team members. The startup idea was to make a contribution in the direction of conservation of nature by management of paper waste and used paper products by reusing them to make useful products namely bricks, paper-seed pens and home decor products; by a process that aims at the upliftment of rural women, marginalized and disabled. The second winning team was implementing algorithms for face detection in the image to build a system that will detect image of students and recognize them. While the third team (Team SmiLight). Their idea was to help manage traffic in case of events such as jams, creation of pathways for events such as green corridor, and traffic-free routes for VIPs, which is currently done manually with the help of traffic policemen. This would also create a new job role for traffic management engineers, with strategic planning to efficiently control traffic centrally in such occurrences. They also wanted to provide some interface such as an app, RFID tag, or some sensor to ambulances, so they could have traffic cleared in their lanes at upcoming signals, and stop the rest of the traffic, together with announcing the arrival of the ambulance.

This Ideathon introduced students to:

  • • Entrepreneurship
  • • Creativity and innovation
