DEMO DAY 2019

The first Demo Day of CEG Alumni Incubator (CEGAIN), on December 7, 2019 Saturday 5-9pm was like a musical performance for CEG Innovators.

Like music, there is a history that one needs to understand to put things in context. Dr.G.Ravikumar, President, AACEG, set the context about the Incubator and the formation of a new Section 8 entity to take things forward. Er.Vish Viswanathan, CEGAIN Panel member shared the journey of the Incubator since 2016 and the composers of the idea to promote and support innovation. 

Then it was the great rendition – 7 start-ups presented their pitches on what problem they are solving, their innovative solution and what is the way forward. The alumni joined as orchestra by giving suggestions and asking pertinent questions.
