Ventura is an international B-Model competition designed to put aspiring startups through a rigorous process to equip them with the necessary skills and tools to build themselves from the foundation. Through a journey of 4 months, from mentorship to varied resources, we provide a platform for those willing and able to take the next step in the journey of entrepreneurship. With a rich history of now-famous winners and participants, it reflects the event's mission to elevate ideas that have the potential to accelerate the development in their respective sectors.


This edition of Ventura invites innovative solutions in 5 sectors that we believe are going to change the world.

Clean Tech

As we toe the line beyond which lie the subtle yet significant and more importantly, harmful effects of centuries of pollution, the perogative to preserve and improve the environment has only and continues to grow stronger as the years pass by. Cleantech has emerged as one of the possible solutions to this problem, representing many ideas including sustainable resource management, environmental protection and alternative energy technology. It remains to see how this nascent sector stands to benefit us and help in protecting the big blue marble that we call home.

Deep Tech

Deep Technologies are gaining momentum in defining the new industrial revolution by establishing a knowledge-based economy. Four technologies (Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Blockchain, Virtual Reality + Augmented Reality) are the building blocks of these solutions which are set to disrupt every industry. Innovators working with these technologies have been building unique patent-able research based products which are systematically changing our perception as fiction enters real world.


Health and healthcare have pushed into new territory with the advent and application of new technology into this sector to modernize and increase its efficacy on the populace. Within the realm of research, a growing number of research focusing on new and exciting fields such as genetics and methods such as CRISPR making analysis easier, it seems as if the sector is getting a distinct makeover.


The term ‘logistics’ today is not exclusive to being a mere B2C-type business. Almost all latest trends in tech are being applied here: from data analytics to AI. The industry has gone beyond its conventional strength to meet the current demands of the consumers is a big strength in itself and a factor of confidence for the investors. To testify this, India produced its first unicorn in the Logistics space this year — Delhivery. Other startups in this field such as Blackbuck, Rivigio, Locus are testimonials to the fact that there is enough room for success in this emerging field.
