Hey folks!

Many of you have been writing in and asking this question over the past couple of weeks: What's the idea behind University Of Commons?

Over the next few months, you are going to have the answer unfold in front of you. In the meantime, check out how it all began!
In 2015, a group of concerned citizens from South Bengaluru met to ponder over this question: How do we get people interested and engaged in thinking about the future?

HELLO EVERYONE

Here are answers to some questions we've been receiving.

Can the idea be anything?

The theme of our ideathon is Social Impact so as long as it fits into the theme, pitch your idea! It doesnt matter how crazy it is - go nuts!

Who can participate?

Absolutely anyone! We are opening the event to students and faculty from any background, any university. We encourage inter-disciplinary teams so dont worry if you dont know anything about entrepreneurship or business. We encourage citizen volunteers and early stage start-up ventures (not older than 3 years) to apply.

I dont have an idea. Can I still join?

huhh! It's difficult to find people who do not have ideas... Team up with a friend who has one.

How many people in a team?

Not more than 3.

How will the mentors help us?

We have some really cool mentors from the Bangalore Social Enterprise & Technology start-up scene on board with University Of Commons! They will be walking around dropping in on teams to have a chat about the ideas. Ask them anything! They are here to help.

Can we continue the idea with UoC in the future? What support will there be after the two day event?

As mentioned on universityofcommons.com, first prize winner will receive mentoring and incubation support, including financial support in the form of stipend.

If there are teams or participants who would like to continue with the idea after Ideathon, there will be an opportunity for teams to become UOC Lab Projects, where they will recieve technology support and mentorship by UoC leadership team until the project becomes self-sustainable.

Keep the questions coming, but most importantly, DON'T FORGET TO REGISTER! Last date of submission - 25 Feb, 2017. Apply at bit.ly/COTF2017
