ET’s Power of Ideas Initiative

Economictimes has launched ‘Power of Ideas’ initiative – the idea is to encourage anyone and everyone with an idea, to realize his or her entrepreneurial dream.

Here are few questions that might help you in your decision of whether to share your ideas with ET panel or not:

Who can participate?

Indian residents aged 18 years or more (as on Feb. 20, 2009) can participate. You may have the germ of an idea, a ready business plan, or even a functioning start-up. If the only thing that is stopping you is a lack of direction or funds.

What about the confidentiality of the Business Idea?

The Power of Ideas does not ask for details of your business plan. During the initial stage, participants are required to provide information in a Business Summary format, only to help the jury filter genuine interest. All information shared through this programme will remain the Intellectual Property of the participant. The detailed terms and conditions on confidentiality and intellectual property are available on www.ideas.economictimes.com for your perusal.
