    The InnoTrek delegate fee covers the cost of group bus travel to/from the delegation hotel and venues on all four days, event day meals which are planned in the delegation schedule and any delegation venue entry fees etc. Delegates are responsible for booking and paying for their own international travel, hotel accommodation, daily breakfast and any meals not part of the delegation schedule. The actual events, venues fees and many of the local expenses are subsidised by NASSCOM to help make this as accessible as possible to startup founders. The cost of TiECON of INR 28,000 is separate and will be directly payable to TiE Silicon Valley.
