Does my application need to be in English?
Can I submit more than one application per round? If yes, do these have to be for different sectors?
Yes, you can submit more than one application per round. If the applications are for projects in the same sector, they should reflect two distinct projects.
What if my project does not fall under any of the three stages designated as MA stages?
Please select the stage that you feel is the closest fit. If the Evaluation Committee determines that your application fits better in another category, they will consider your proposal for that other type of award. You may email us with queries.
My organization is based out of India. Am I still eligible for an MA award?
Yes. However, the project must have been developed/tested/implemented in India.
Can NRIs or foreign citizens resident in India apply?
Yes. However, the project should have been developed/tested/implemented in India.
How does MA define an innovation?
MA takes a broad approach to defining innovation. Both new products and improvements to existing services or business models qualify. If you have any doubts about whether your product or service is innovative enough for MA, please do not hesitate to get in touch before applying.
How and when will I be notified about the status of my application?
MA will post the results of the shortlisted projects on our website and email those shortlisted applicants to request them to participate in the pitching session in Delhi. Once the final award decisions are made, MA will again post the final awardees on our website and email the selected awardees.
