EVangelise '23 Bootcamp highlights tech innovations for India's EV sector

iCreate (International Centre for Entrepreneurship and Technology), an innovation-based startup incubator, is hosting the 5-day Bootcamp, EVangelise 2023 at its campus near Ahmedabad, Gujarat. The bootcamp, from November 3 to 7, is showcasing solutions to real world challenges faced by the EV industry in India by the top 40 innovators from more than 2700 entries.

EVangelise 2023 invited innovations from across various stages of development under three key EV technology themes - the Traction, Energy and Telematics, Intelligence and Connectivity (TIC). Winners of EVangelise'23 will receive a total cash prize of Rs 56 lakh.

Commenting on the bootcamp, Avinash Punekar, CEO of iCreate, said, “India's rapid economic growth positions it as the future manufacturing hub across various sectors, particularly in the electric vehicles industry. The 'Make in India' initiative aims for 100 percent local EV production, and we are in the early stages of this exciting journey. iCreate has been contributing to this goal by hosting EVangelise, India's biggest EV innovation challenge for the past three years. During this bootcamp, we don't merely identify groundbreaking innovations; we nurture them, foster partnerships, and pave the way for a sustainable, electric future.”

Aligned with India’s 2030 vision of EVs being 80 percent of all two- and three-wheeler sales, EVangelise ’23 will also connect innovations with industry partners, providing access to capital, and providing incubation support that are essential to growth and scalability. To foster collaboration and opportunities for valuable mentorship the bootcamp also saw masterclasses from technology experts from Ansys and MathWorks.

Earlier in June 2023, iCreate announced EVangelise 2023, which has two categories: The idea Stage and the scale-up Stage. Startups at the ideation stage (Below TRL 5) will have the opportunity to present their concepts and potentially form strategic partnerships with industrial partners. Meanwhile, startups at the scale-up stage (TRL 5 and above) will have the opportunity to connect with venture capital firms to secure the necessary funding for their growth and expansion.
