The top three winning teams of the 2022-2023 season will display their innovative dream products in front of global industry leaders, policymakers, mentors, investors, and entrepreneurs at the Startup20 final summit on July 3rd and 4th at Gurugram, India. The event will host over 150 entrepreneurs and their start-ups across the world, with the "Made in 3D – Seed the Future Entrepreneurs" top three frontrunners being the only student start-ups participating. One representative from each of these three start-ups will also take part in a panel discussion. The summit represents the global start-up ecosystem and brings together varied stakeholders on a common platform to raise concerns and challenges faced by entrepreneurs with the G20 leaders.

La Fondation Dassault Systèmes in India adopted the “Made in 3D – Seed the Future Entrepreneurs” program initially conceptualized by La Fondation Dassault Systèmes in France and its partner the La main à la pâte foundation. Since 2021, it is executed in collaboration with the Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) of NITI Aayog – Government of India. It aims to foster innovation and entrepreneurship amongst students by introducing them to the culture of makers and start-ups. Participants create pseudo start-ups to develop their dream products, which they imagine, design, make and promote using 3D design and 3D printing technology, as well as advanced collaboration tools.

2022-2023 Winning Teams

Season 2022-23 brought together 600 students aged 12 to 16 years from 100 schools selected from 31 states and union territories of India with the help of 200 teachers and 150 Dassault Systèmes volunteers.

Here are the winners of the June 24 season's finale who are presenting at Shikhar, the G20 Final Startup20 Summit :

    The team invented Foot Relaxo Shoes that work on the principle of acupuncture. The product leverages the spinal points on the base of the foot as it applies pressure to these points and maintains blood flow using magnets.

  3. INDR - City Pride School, Pune, Maharashtra, India

    Dedicated to revolutionizing the drone accessory industry, this start-up invented MadhuMitra, a groundbreaking solution that addresses the issue of unwanted honeybee hives in urban environments.
