Entrepreneur, a French term has become a word of popular talk in all discussion circles today. By definition, it means, one who undertakes innovations with finance and business acumen to transform innovations into economically feasible products.
The need for developing entrepreneurial skills is on the high today. They are not only needed to start a new company but also to make an indelible mark where a person is employed.
The E-Cell at Hindustan University is committed to the cause of nurturing these skills in the students. A Non-Profit Organization, in collaboration with NEN (National Entrepreneurship Network), it aims at training students to steer their innovative ideas to a level of economic feasibility and industrial viability. After lying dormant for a long period since its inception, it is now being revived and brought into the function it was intended to perform.
The Innovation and Incubation Cell is in the process of being established. Here the students and faculty, with any innovative idea for the betterment of the society, will be provided with infrastructure to transform the ideas into products.
Currently, as a part of the revival process to set the endeavour into full scale motion, workshops, seminars, entrepreneurship talks by eminent entrepreneurs and other such activities along with NEN are being conducted to educate the students about the need for entrepreneurship. Every year in February, the E-Week is conducted in the University Campus by the students for the students with an aim to bring out and gauge their entrepreneurial talents. Also, students and faculty are nominated to represent the University in NEN workshops to learn more about firmly establishing the E-Cell. They, in turn, communicate what they learnt to the other members. We are indeed looking forward to the hatching of start up companies in the University.
