Student Cell Activities

ENTREPRENEUR DEVELOPMENT CELL (EDP):

The basic aim of E-Cell is to encourage our MBA student(s) today to start their own enterprise and we plan to do by the following means:

  • Organizing workshops/ lectures periodically to create awareness about entrepreneurship.
  • Functioning as a guide to students with creative ideas which can be transformed into successful business ventures.
  • Providing mentorship through icons/ individuals/ successful entrepreneurs for students launching their start – ups.

With this as the back drop our E-Cell got momentum and to know the batch of MBA students of 2013-14 we tried to know about those students who chose to study MBA with a vision to excel in their managerial career and also who would like to become entrepreneurs

Beginning of the Journey

Mr. Crasta is a leading industrialist in the State of Karnataka. He was invited on January 04, 2014 to address all the students aiming at inspiring all of them. This step was the foundation of a long journey and it seemed few of the students got inspired and asked him many interesting/ thought provoking questions. Mr. Phanindra Sama, founder of Red Bus and few others are likely to be invited to inspire the future entrepreneurs. It may so happen the School may put up effort to arrange venture capital support for one new startup to be undertaken by any student.
