About IP Fiesta
Keeping the theme of this year’s Intellectual Property Day, the Centre for Intellectual Property Rights (CIPR), UPES is organizing ‘IP Fiesta- Celebrating Innovation and Technology’- an event which aims at taking all the participants on a journey of understanding the world of intellectual property, and showcasing their Intellectual Property related knowledge and talent.
CIPR has curated two unique and non-conventional events to give students who are enthusiastic about Intellectual Property Rights, an opportunity to make use of this platform and present their ideas and talents.
The event will focus on bringing out new ideas in students, encouraging them to speak up, propose changes and stand out.
As a part of the celebration, they are organizing two competitions namely ‘The Pitch Bowl’ and National IPR Olympiad.
About The Pitch Bowl
The Pitch Bowl is an initiative to encourage the start-up culture in the country and to give students an opportunity to present their new and creative ideas (or pitch), and stand a chance to be recognized. The same runs in consonance with the WIPO World IP day theme for the year 2022 which is ‘IP and Youth Innovating for a Better Future’.
This competition will not only help students get a platform to present their ideas related to any product or service which is novel and has potential to aid the society, but will also encourage them to get more creative and think of solutions to persisting issues in the world.
The students will be judged on the basis of the creativity of their pitch, and how their idea can benefit the society by a versatile panel of judges.
There will be two rounds in this event. The first round will be the Preliminary selection for which the participants will have to submit a written draft of about 500 words describing their idea. After the preliminary screening, the selected participants will be invited to present their pitch in an offline mode.
Each participant/team will be allotted 10 minutes to present their pitch to a versatile panel of judges and will stand a chance to not only win cash prizes, but also get CIPR’s assistance in Intellectual Property registration of that idea in case they wish to pursue it further.
A maximum of two students are allowed to participate as a team in this event. The participants can also present their pitch individually.
