?The rapid foray into technological advancements has done little to settle the ongoing debate over the effectiveness of synergy between academia and industry. In its effort to wash away the boundary separating the two, i2I has evolved from a traditional Business Plan contest to a start ups factory. Four out of the nine finalist teams from the 2008 challenge saw their dreams become reality. i2I facilitates interaction among finalists (and short listed teams as well) and its investment partners to allow serious and dedicated teams to catapult themselves towards financial support.
