To announce its second season, the Haywards 5000 Hausla Buland Academy has also launched a new TVC campaign – Naa Se Haan Tak.” The TVC showcases the challenges of an aspiring entrepreneur who hails from a small town of India. In spite of being rejected by everyone, his will to fulfil his dream motivates him to make his business idea a reality. The TVC also highlights his strong resolve (Hausla) that transforms every “Naa” to a “Haan”. He charts his own path and finally reaches his next milestone.

Haywards 5000 will conduct auditions across the nation which will serve as a platform for aspiring entrepreneurs from small and big towns to showcase their innovative business ideas and share their stories of unrelenting resolve. The participants will be mentored by an interview panel consisting of well-known entrepreneurs and industry experts as well as Hausla Buland Academy professional counsellors through online and offline mediums. The winning business idea will receive a seed funding of Rs. 15 Lac from the Hausla Buland Academy.

The finalists will be selected basis a combination of factors including market opportunity, uniqueness of the presented business idea, the growth potential, the strategy, the enthusiasm and passion of the participant, the knowledge of the industry, realistic goals and finally the total investment required. The on-ground auditions will be held this year in the following cities: Gurgaon, Faridabad, Jaipur, Pune, Nagpur, Kolkata, Bangalore, Secunderabad, Rohtak, Ludhiana, Amritsar and Mohali and will begin in July 2016.
