KPMG, one of the Big Four accounting organizations, has launched its flagship competition KPMG Ideation Challenge 2021 (KIC 2021). As a part of KIC 2021, students will generate a new idea that could change the world, create a prototype, and then pitch it to business leaders. Along the way, students will work with KPMG member firms’ data scientists, coders, business specialists, and tech gurus, who will help bring the idea to life.

Exciting Prizes

All engineering, MBA, and undergraduate students can apply by December 4, 2021. Students will be required to develop a cutting-edge solution that can help an organization/industry of their choice and the world at large with decarbonization and make this planet a better place. 

The top two teams from the national finale will secure guaranteed internships with KPMG in India. In addition, the winning team will receive a cash award of INR 5 Lakh and the coveted title of ‘Team India’, while the runner-up team will receive a cash prize of INR 3 Lakh. There is more to it than meets the eye. Students will get the opportunity to network with executives from start-ups and the industry at a networking event in Delhi/Gurgaon (travel and stay sponsored by KPMG in India). The teams with viable concepts will receive ongoing coaching from KPMG professionals in India and access to platforms for presenting their ideas to Venture Capitalists!

Who can apply?

Applicants should be pursuing a full-time undergraduate/bachelor’s degree/post-graduate program with at least one year remaining of their studies.
