Registration Information


It's Easy to Register

For Season Two, we have partnered with F6S.com, a company that offers startup and accelerator competitions and programs, as well as job opportunities to all registered members.  With their assistance, we were able to tailor our competition to fit their software platform, which will greatly aid us in administering the competition, especially adding judges & reviewers and scoring all student team entries.


Thus, if you see wording related to “startups” when at the F6S platform, please realize this applies to your student team –as the “applicant” for our competition, and not a start-up. A minor inconsistency, but well worth it for its functionality added.  We have a Three Step Registration and Submission Process that is outlined below. To get started, it's just Step One — selecting a team leader who will register on the F6S platform as a member and then sign-up the team, itself.


To qualify to win this competition, student teams must complete the following 3 step process in submitting their Case Study, as well as any additional requests asked of it by the Make The Case India administrators during the competition itself, especially related to teams selected for the finals.  Please refer to the FAQ for

specific details not listed here about the competition, scoring, awards and such.


Teams can be students from both university and graduate schools from within India and the Indian Subcontinent


STEP ONE: REGISTER YOUR TEAM STARTING AT 5 JANUARY, 2022. REGISTRATION DEADLINE 30 JANUARY 2022


F6S.com Application Process High-Level Overview


A)    Designate one of your student team to be the Team Leader. Note: This person needs to register on the site, FS6.com, as an individual and will be asked to do so during the team registration process (See #1 of Exact Steps). This can be as simple as using her or his Google, Facebook, or LinkedIn profile.   


B)  At the F6S.com page, once personally registered, she or he will be asked to complete the team registration form, which also includes three questions to be completed, including:


Please provide your team's university. If multiple universities, please list them

Please list your team members (name, email address, school). Teams must have 3 or 4 students.

That’s all that’s needed for the team to register.  

Note: Once completed, the team will receive (within one week, but more likely within a few days) a private link to Step 2 that will need to be completed by February 15th, at the latest. Finally, the team will receive a new private link to submit their Case Study and answer additional questions as described below in Step 3 after completing Step 2.


F6S.com Registration Exact Steps For Team Leader:

  1. On this /Register page, click on the button "Register at F6S.com Now"
  2. You will be sent to F6S.com. If already personally registered, you'll need to click on the button "Register Your Make the Case India Team." Skip to 4. If not personally registered, continue.
  3. If you do not have a F6S account, you will be asked to first register yourself, as the Team Leader, by connecting via Google, Facebook or LI profile, or adding your email and password. If by email, you'll also be asked to add your name and location. Click on "JOIN" button and complete registration. Note: you likely will also receive a number of emails from F6S after sign-up, one asking to validate your email account.

Note: Once personally signed up to FS6, you'll then be asked to answer 3 questions (see #6), including one where you'll add your team members. No need to have them register with FS6, at all. Please scroll down to "Let's Get Started" and click on "Create New" to name your student team.

  1. ) You'll next be asked to "invite people" to join as "co-founder" – click on "Skip" at top right. Important, to reiterate: please do not add your team members into F6S. It is totally unnecessary.
  2. Next, you are required to answer the 3 Questions posted under "Questions" (again scroll down to see if on your mobile phone)
  3. Last, once all the questions are answered, click on "Register Your Make the Case India Team." You'll receive emails from F6S to confirm your registration — on our behalf.


(please note: as F6S.com is focused on startup applications to accelerators, they have hardcoded certain automatically-generated replies related to your application –please ignore)

STEP 2: TELL US ABOUT THE THEME AND INITIATIVE YOUR TEAM HAS SELECTED (COMPLETE BY FEBRUARY 15TH)

We will be asking the Team Leader to provide us with high-level information by answering the following 4 questions. Note: None of this information will be presented to the Case Study Reviewers or used as part of the scoring process. It is information only for our internal purposes.


  •  Of the 3 themes (existing project, new innovation and local plastic waste problem to solve), please share what drew your team to consider this theme versus the others.  This info will be valuable for future seasons.


  • List at least 2 other solutions your team considered.  Preferably as many as 5. This info will be very helpful for planning next year’s competition. 

  • How did your team search for the solutions it considered? Did you search “on google words,” use the CAPP PCC Codes? Not do any searching as the choice was obvious?

  • Have you attempted to reach out to the stakeholder to arrange an interview? If you did and had no reply and would like our assistance in reaching out to them for you, please let us know here. Include the email address and the person’s name and title, and we’ll do our best to get them to participate.=

STEP 3: SUBMIT YOUR CASE STUDY AND ANSWER 3 QUESTIJONS RELATED TO YOUR SOLUTION AND THE SDGs (COMPLETE BY FEBRUARY 28TH)


Your Case Study will count for 85.7% of your final score.  Your answers to the 3 questions, which every

team will be answering, will count for the remaining 14.3%.


After you submit Step 2, you will receive a private link to Step 3. Here, you will be able to submit your Case Study PDF and, separately, also answer the following question:


  • Which core SDGs are impacted through this initiative? And which SDGs are tangentially impacted through this initiative? ( Demonstrate by using infographics)
