NCU student wins Mentor’s Award by OSA at Washington, DC (USA)

Nishant Sachdeva, CSE, 3rd Year, attended a workshop, ‘The Innovation School’ by OSA Foundation from 22-26 July 2018, at OSA's global headquarters in Washington, DC USA. His start-up idea was accepted by the OSA Foundation and he was invited to attend this prestigious workshop. Nishant won the ‘Mentors Award’ for the way he pitched his business idea, on 26 July 2018. Nishant was the youngest member to be accepted to represent his college and country which provided him an amazing opportunity of getting such an exposure at an early stage.

The Innovation School was a highly-interactive programme perfect for those seeking to participate in the innovation economy - as an innovator at their company, at a start-up venture or as an entrepreneur. During this four day boot camp, Nishant communicated with industry experts and learnt to identify high potential ideas, validate them using key tactics of customer discovery and evidence, vet them through innovation, experimentation and develop pitches on new solutions, products or ventures. 
Speaking about his experience Nishant said, “Ideas are a commodity but execution of them is not. In Innovation School I learned how to turn ideas into reality.”
