Frequently asked Questions

It takes a lot of industry experience to come up with a great idea to start-up. As students, we know that you lack that experience. To overcome this, we have a list of carefully chosen industry ideas which students in colleges can build. Each idea costs ₹10,000 of research by business analysts. You can thus join, even if you don’t have an idea.

Yes. We however, encourage exceptional school students to join.

Our program is only for college students: the only requirement is that you form a team, one (or more) team members should know how to code and communicate in English well. We also encourage exceptional school students to join. Because of the nature of our program, it’s very unlikely that graduates or experienced founders will benefit.

You need to have at least 2 members and maximum 4. Ideally, team members must have a mix of skills: engineering (software programming), design (UI, UX and Visual Design) and product (good knowledge of what makes a good software product). The SV.CO program does not teach these skills and assumes that student founders are confident and capable enough to pick up these skills during the program.

It’s not necessary that team members be in the same college or course, but ideally, they should all work together in the same place for the entire six month period of the course.

You can start the program today! Complete the sign-up form and start your startup journey.

Note: To complete the first stage, you need to form a team. This is because we strongly believe that a campus startup cannot be attempted by yourself; you require at least one co-founder with complimentary skills.

We do not directly fund startups. Instead, we take them through a guided learning program where they learn how to build a great startup. At the end of the program, getting funded is one of six graduation options.
