Hi there, thank you for showing interest in my crowdfunding campaign!

I am Anaj Antony, an undergraduate student from Govt. Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology,Kottayam,India. I recently got admitted to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)Technology and Innovation Tokyo, Japan in March, 2019. .

Please view my acceptance letter from the link below:

The MIT Technology and Innovation Bootcamp is  program from MIT for global innovators, entrepreneurs, and change-makers. Participants, including myself (hopefully), will go to Tokyo,Japan on March 20-29, 2018 for an intense program to learn how to build innovation-driven ventures that solve global challenges in the environment, agriculture and mining resources sectors. At this MIT Bootcamp, entrepreneurs from all over the world will come together, form teams, and be challenged with finding a scalable solution by applying new technologies and ideas to solve a problem relevant to one of these resource sectors.

It is a very selective program which has produced 381 Bootcamp graduates from more than 70 countries in its past five batches since 2014. So far, more than a hundred new ventures valued over $36 million have been launched by MIT Bootcamp graduates since then. It saw five alumni getting selected for the Forbes 30 under 30 and six eventually admitted to the MIT.

I have launched this campaign to raise funds to cover the cost of attending the Bootcamp. The breakdown is as follows:

Tuition - USD 11,000.

Travel cost, Accommodation expenses and visa - USD 4000.

Important  Deadlines(This secures your seat at the bootcamp) below

Deposit for Bootcamp $2000  before 20th February
Deposit for Bootcamp & Trek $3000 before 20th January

Payment  of complete tuition before 29th february, 2019.
I am looking forward to  institutions, enterprises, companies and individuals who are willing to support a dream for the MIT experience, which will be instrumental in my entrepreneurial journey.

The detailed breakthrough of the program is given below:
The entire program costs 11,000 USD, which includes the tuition fee of 8000 USD (EXCLUDING cost of travel and accommodation) and a three-day trip out of Tokyo to the Tohoku region to gain a deeper understanding of how the Fukushima Daiichi disaster in 2011 occurred, and how it affected the region and country as a whole. Highlight of this experience is a visit to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, along with multiple engaging cultural activities. sites before the MIT Innovation & Entrepreneurship Bootcamp officially begins on March 20, which costs 3000 USD. The trek’s cost already includes local flights to/from Tokyo, local transportation, shared accommodation, and food.

My transportation to Tokyo from India, and my accommodation for the duration of the Bootcamp proper is estimated to cost around 3000 USD, making my total funding target 14,000 USD.
A 3000-USD downpayment must be paid on or before February 20, in order to secure the slot.

Unfortunately, it will be difficult for me to push through with my participation to the Bootcamp without financial support. If you believe in my causes and my potential to eventually contribute more to society after the Bootcamp, please feel free to chip in any amount you are comfortable sharing, by either donating through this crowdfunding platform  or depositing to my bank account: State Bank of India(SBI) account no. 33892268435.
