We want to send a big thank you to everyone who participated in our contest. We saw incredible stories of passion, perseverance, and creativity. The big day is almost here and excitement is building! 

We’ve spent the last week locked in deliberations, and our judges have emerged with their picks for the top eleven teams for the Anveshan 2019 Fellowship. Our competition began in August 2019 and we received 91 submissions from all over India. The submissions spanned over different colleges from the length and breadth of the Country, and this year’s finalists have once again raised the bar for Anveshan. Finalists were judged on their impact on society, feasibility of implementation, innovation and their passion to defend their ideas. These final eleven teams will now be funded and mentored by Analog Devices to convert their ideas into products that will BUILD THE FUTURE.
