As every sector of the economy across the globe gears up for the digital transformation, Metamorphosis Edu has already started preparing the next generation of entrepreneurs to get comfortable with the virtual world. While there are many initiatives that were put forward to serve the students during the lockdown, the Virtual B-plan Competition stands as the one that peaked the excitement in the young entrepreneurs. The Virtual B-plan Competition is a business plan competition where students (from Grade VI – Grade XII) compete with their peers across the country. The competition has three levels to it. A special jury has been set up for filtering and promoting the deserving ideas to the next level. The competition has been fierce as students did not leave any stone unturned to give a stunning presentation. The jury has definitely gone through a tough time in filtering out the ideas.
However, after the tedious process of screening, the winners have been announced. The event has witnessed 82 ideas from which 5 ideas have won the competition and 6 ideas received a special mention.
- The first prized is backed by Dhanya Chowdary Arimilli from Indus International School for the idea “Connect” – an application where users can make appointments with doctors, book slots for blood tests, etc.,
- The second prize is shared between two participants – Pranav Kumar of Gitanjali Senior School, Hyderabad for the idea “Local Cart”– an application that promises delivery within 45 minutes and has an option to order diverse products, and Zahra Shirpurwala of Tagore International School Vasant Vihar, New Delhi for the idea “The Golden Gate Travel”– a travel application that has every offering required for travelers.
- The third prize is again shared between two participants – Vedaant Kumar of Kennedy Global, Hyderabad, for the idea “Student to Student” – an application that brings all the students onto one platform for knowledge sharing purposes and Sia Agarwal of Silver Oaks International School, Banglore for the idea “Artshalla” – an e-commerce platform where traditional art pieces are sold for home and restaurant decor.
Metamorphosis is proud of every single idea that was part of the Virtual B-plan Competition, and the level of professionalism showcased by the students has given us all the more strength to strive towards entrepreneurially empowering the students across the globe.
We look forward to creating more such platforms where the aspiring entrepreneurs to showcase their ideas.
