We plan to be present on the Android cellphone of every student of this country by the end of 2015.


Why should you choose to work on this project?

Informal answer: Because it is challenging. Because it will put every grey cell of your body to work. Because you know start-ups fascinate you.

Formal answer: This project will offer you a break from the theoretical assignments of your curriculum. It is your opportunity to work on a LIVE challenge faced by a growing start-up. You will get a chance to see your recommendations being put into action by the company.

Straight from the heart: This could be your first step towards realizing your dream of running a start-up of your own...gazillion bytes to crunch before you and we sleep!


What will be your role?

Ideas are dime a dozen; the magic lies in implementing them.

We are looking for a true blue entrepreneur who can ace both the product management and marketing role; who can think and implement; who can dream with open eyes; who can do what it takes! And then some more.

This one month and one week long intern-ship role is divided into 3 parts:

1) Product Management

Duration: 15 *rigorous* days

Project Objective: Develop new product offerings and improve existing ones by understanding customers' requirements.

2) Business Development

Duration: 15 *rigorous* days

On successful completion, the participants will get “Certificate of Contribution” signed/acknowledged by the CEO and more importantly, an awesome goodies bag.

3) A Pan India competition (Optional)

Other details regarding the competition would be divulged at a later stage. 

At the moment, let us just say that the winner would receive a shiny new iPad Mini.

Do. Or do not. There is no try.

a) Your current resume at shikha.chaudhry@newsbytesapp.com

b) A wishlist of 2 ideas which you would want to see in the NewsBytesApp.
