For Colleges

Entrepreneurship Cell is searching for innovative and enterprising ideas through its Business Plan competitions. Our competitions provide a platform for students to get excellent professional mentorship from our experienced, varied and distinguished mentor pool, and to showcase their ideas in front of Venture Capitalists, Angel Investors and Industry Leaders. Students with business ideas about product design, social entrepreneurship, clean technology or web 2.0 and mobile based applications should submit their first round entries before November 15th, 2010.

Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) 2011 (from 14th to 16th January, 2011) is one of the biggest entrepreneurial platforms for academicians, new-age entrepreneurs, eminent business personalities, venture capitalists and students to gather at one place and share their entrepreneurial endeavours and experiences, and to pledge to take entrepreneurship to greater scales. Colleges sending their delegates to GES can also get great help in opening their own E-Cells.

Global Entrepreneurship Summit also plays host to Startup Camp which would serve as a platform that connects the best startups of the country to students and VC’s. Startup Camp would witness participation of 20 of the best Startups in the country who would showcase their product/services to students and VCs. These startups would provide college students a unique opportunity to work with them as a full time employee or as an intern. In addition, the participating startups would get a chance to pitch their ideas to prominent VC’s of the country, thus giving an impetus to their venture. Other benefits will be finding appropriate partners and networking. It also serves as a platform of motivation and valuable learning for aspiring entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneurship Awareness Drive (EAD) is an initiative by E-Cell which includes workshops, indigenously termed as Entrepreneurship Awareness Camp (EAC) in 15 cities during the month of October. Colleges can play a major role as the venue in the selected cities. This gives them a chance to associate with us.
