E Adda

Launching a new enterprise-whether it's a tech start-up, a small business, or an initiative within a large corporation-has always been a hit-or-miss proposition. According to the decades old formula, you write a business plan, pitch it to investors, assemble a team, introduce a product, and start selling as hard as you can. And somewhere in this sequence of events, you'll probably suffer a fatal setback if you do not have the proper inspiration, R&D or execution. This is why the Entrepreneurship Cell of IIT Kharagpur endeavoured to launch a platform, entitled 'E-Adda', which will enable sharing of knowledge, experiences and networking between the startup community and the budding entrepreneurs on campus in a completely informal way. Held in the form of weekly meetups on a pre decided theme, E-adda facilitates knowledge sharing between entrepreneurs and young enthusiasts. Each meeting is divided into three parts : Hangout with an Expert, Activity, and Discussion among the members.
