MIT BAP 2015 Registration Form

We have great pleasure in announcing the start of the MITEFP-OPEN Business Acceleration Program (BAP-2015). BAP-2007 to BAP-2013 were huge successes and the participating teams reported that they benefited tremendously from participating in these competitions. This year, in addition to existing IT/ITES/Telecom/New Media Companies, the program has been expanded by including two more tracks namely Women Led Existing Companies/Start-ups and Research Teams.

One member of the top firm from each track would be fully sponsored to attend the MIT EDP(Entrepreneurship Development Program) at MIT in USA. OPEN USA would also arrange Road Shows in the USA where these companies would be honored and presented to OPEN members/Investors.​
