The second wave of Covid left us all once again locked inside our homes, but as the blues of the Covid are getting over, IIM Lucknow is getting ready to witness its biggest Management fest. With more than 36 years of legacy, Manfest-Varchasva, IIM Lucknow’s Annual Business, Cultural and Sports fest, is about to kickstart on February 19th 2022.
In the aftermath of the COVID -19, the fest is all set to be conducted online. Student bodies and college administration are ensuring that all COVID protocols and guidelines are being ensured for the safe operations of the fest.

The fest is lined up with more than 40 events across categories like management, dance, singing, theatre, literature, and fashion, among many others. One of the major highlights of this year’s Manfest-Varchasva is the 50 Million Startup funding challenge where budding entrepreneurs will pitch their business ideas to eminent VC investors to raise funding from a net pool of INR 50 million.
The cultural events will have participants being judged by celebrities excelling in their respective domains. The prominent judges for this year's Manfest-Varchasva include Kailash Kher, Avijit Dutt & Saumya Tandon.
