Help Anurag Solve Global Challenges Through MIT Boot Camp

Hi all!
Warm Greetings of the day!

I am Anurag Barde currently pursuing PGDM in Marketing from Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies Bangalore.
I am extremely happy to inform you all that I have been selected for 'Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Innovation and entrepreneurship Boot camp' to be held at Rio De Janeiro, Brazil from July 28 - Aug 3, 2018, by qualifying rigorous rounds. However, for me to be able to attend this boot camp and live my dream, I will need all your help and heartfelt support. This is the 'Offer of Admission' from MIT.


As we know, MIT has maintained the quo of being the best university of the world since past 6 years.
MIT Bootcamps bring entrepreneurs and innovators from around the world to learn and practice into a same framework by the MIT faculty and MIT-trained mentors, using the rigorous and disciplined approach that speaks MIT.

Admission to the MIT Global Entrepreneurship Boot camp is by a highly selective process and is based on the following five criteria: rigor, initiative, contribution to community, team and cultural fit, and entrepreneurial potential. Only 70-80 candidates are selected from 35-40 countries per year.

MIT GEB Alumni have launched 100+ new ventures, raising over $50M in number of industries.

There are 381 alumni currently from 70+ countries.
Six Bootcampers were selected for Forbes 30 under 30:
  • Leonika Sari, Class 1 (Healthcare & Science),
  • David Anderton, Class 1 (Media),
  • Étienne Mérineau, Class 1 (Marketing)
  • Nasir Yammama (Class 2)
  • Karan Jerath, Class 4, (Energy)
  • Keiana Cavé, Class 4 (Energy)
Six Bootcampers have been admitted to MIT:
  • Jin Wu,
  • Nidhi Sharma (IDM)
  • Jakub Chudik (Undergrad),
  • Hiro Tien (Sloan)
  • David Anderton (Media Lab)
Currently I am looking for funding for my visit to this Bootcamp. Approximate cost for the trip is as follows,

Tuition fee to be paid to MIT - USD 6000
Flight tickets (Cheapest) - USD 2500
Accommodation in Brazil - USD 1500
Total = USD 10000 which comes to around 6.6 Lakhs INR.

About me, I come from a very simple middle-class Indian family. My family won't be able to sponsor me for this boot camp since we already have loans of lakhs and I don't want my dream to be a burden to them.

I am looking for fundraising as one of the options to gather funds and visit Rio to see my dream turning into reality!

Funds raised through this platform will help me attend MIT Boot camp and will boost my career to a great extent by giving me adequate training, guidance, mentoring and networking to help solve grassroots social challenges in India through innovation and entrepreneurship.
Help me empower others and build India through Entrepreneurship and a chance to solve global challenges at MIT Bootcamp and replicate them in the form of Start-up in India.

What I can give back to you/organisations for sponsoring me for MIT Boot camp?

(1) Promote sponsoring person/organisation during the Bootcamp at MIT, by talking about their initiatives/programs and impact.
(2) Distribute their goodies/merchandise to the most promising entrepreneurs from across the world!
(3) They will be featured as the Sponsor in the blogs/articles I publish regarding my experience at the MIT which will be read by youth and professionals worldwide.

I believe in dreams. Dreams can turn into reality only if you are persistent, dedicated and humble and I believe you have everything. I wish I can donate more. But as of I am capable of only this much. Wish you all the best for the event.
