FORE Markathon FORE

By Team SigMa

About Markathon

A business stimulation event where participants are given Rs.999/- to buy items and then sell them to earn profits.

So you think you can sell? Do you have it in you to be the budding entrepreneur? SigMa gives you the chance to prove it. No fake environment, no presentations, no case studies. We give you Rs. 999 and half a days’ time. You will be on the streets by yourself. Show us your skills and multiply the money.

How you utilize these Rs. 999 is totally upto you. Maybe you will buy roses and sell them at a higher price, or buy Sarojini Nagar bangles? Cook food and sell? Your choice. Your idea.

The rules are pretty simple, you will be judged on the amount of money you generate (quantitative) and the OMG factor of your Idea (qualitative).

Markathon will be held in two rounds:
Round 1: Synopsis of your Idea

In the first round the teams will be sending one page synopsis on what exactly they are going to do in the final round. There is no minimum or maximum word limit for the synopsis. The file name should be “TeamName_Markathon” and the teams are requested to mail the same at “”. Deadline for submission of synopsis is 10th November 2016. The teams will be shortlisted on the basis of uniqueness, reliability and feasibility of the idea. The announcement of the shortlisted teams will be done by 13th November 2016. The shortlisted teams are then supposed to send us a mail by 10:00pm 14th November 2016 confirming their presence for the campus round.

Round 2: Sell your Idea
