Awards Process

The start-up ecosystem is India is vast and there is no dearth of original ideas backed by great investment acumen. In order to maintain complete transparency and objectivity, for our first-ever NDTV Unicorn Awards 2016, we prepared a list of categories encompassing start-up sectors across the universe. While NASSCOM 10,000 Start-ups came on board as our knowledge partner for the awards, Tracxn, a start-up intelligence and market research platform, served as our research partner.

How The Start-ups Were Selected
An extensive, exhaustive and informative jury docket, comprising a comprehensive list of nominations across multiple categories with supportive criteria for selection, was prepared by Tracxn, and from that long list around 20 start-ups within each category, around a handful of front-runners were sorted, shortlisted, studied and endorsed by NASSCOM 10,000 Start-ups.

Procedure For Selection
A jury docket with all the information and the final nominations within each category will be sent to respective jury members. The jury will then study about these start-ups and rate them on different parameters.

Our endeavour is completely transparent and is to award the deserving start-ups across different categories.
