Workshop on commercialization of science & technology ideas

Normally, PuneTech does not promote events that have an entry fee, unless the fees are nominal or very low (below Rs. 1000). This Venture Center/Accelerator India workshop for science & technology entrepreneurs, with estimated costs of Rs. 55000 is definitely not free. However, some of the applicants will not only get the workshop fees waived off, but even their travel costs might get funded. If there's one thing we like more than free events, it is paid events where there's a chance to get in for free! ūüôā
