Chief Minister's E-Champion Challenge

The Chief Minister’s E-Champion Challenge programme is a recurring annual event and is giving a platform to all budding local talent while creating a healthy entrepreneurial ecosystem in the state. The Chief Minister’s E-Champion Challenge aims to identify the most promising entrepreneurs of the state in a fair and competitive selection process.

The challenge is a multi-step procedure starting with a written online application, a shortlisting process and ending with pitching sessions before the most promising entrepreneurs are selected for incubation under PRIME Startup Hub.

The Cohort 2.0 of TOP50 Incubation that has been identified under the 2nd edition of the Chief Minister’s E-Champion Challenge is currently underway. The next application window will open in May or June 2022.
