Entrepreneurship Cell, IIT Kharagpur is a student body which promotes entrepreneurship
among the youth of India. We invite various eminent entrepreneurs to deliver lectures to
inculcate the spirit of entrepreneurship among them. Case study workshops, Knowledge
Camps, patent workshops are conducted throughout the year. E-Cell also actively incubates startup ideas by linking the right investors with the right entrepreneurs. Competitions on Business Plan, Product-Design, etc. are conducted on an annual basis. As part of the initiative of spreading awareness about entrepreneurship outside IIT Kharagpur, E- Cell started a unique program known as Entrepreneurship Awareness Drive (EAD). We conduct EAD in cities across the country, in reputed colleges in each city, during the months of September/October. Each Entrepreneurship Awareness Camp (EAC) consists of eminent and successful entrepreneurs speaking about their entrepreneurial experiences and the joys and hardships of their journey to success followed by a networking session in which the students and to-be innovators interact with the speakers. There will be also an introduction with the start ups and entrepreneurship promoting bodies of that and nearby cities. The imprints that this initiative will leave will definitely inspire more and more nascent minds to take the path of entrepreneurship, the path less travelled by.
EAD 2009 was conducted in 10 days in 10 cities and we increased the number to 13, in EAD 2010 and 15 in 2011. Entrepreneurship Awareness Drive 2011 had a footfall of 7550. Encouraged by the immense success and response, E-Cell IIT Kharagpur has decided to take EAD 2012 to greater heights by conducting it in 20 cities across India.
These camps also mobilize the student community about Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES), which is our annual event which attracts entrepreneurs, VCs, students and corporate personalities from all over India and abroad.
