Entrepreneurship Development Cell

The post contains the agenda of the Entrepreneurship Development Cell which is written, edited and drafted by me.


Agrata, a Sanskrit word meaning Leadership completely defines the Entrepreneurship Development Cell. Students are our country's future and the Cell intends to nurture them, provide them with opportunities for excellence. It intends to demystify the working of corporate for students to better understand and emulate, to let the budding entrepreneurs get a feel of how the corporate world works. In all it is the cherished dream of the EDC to create corpocrats (corporates + technocrats) out of the present day technocrats.


- The Entrepreneurship Development Cell of IET ROPAR will have the objective of creating, fostering and promoting the spirit of entrepreneurship among the students of the college.
- EDC will aim at developing the spirit of entrepreneurship among the students of IET Ropar.
- It wants not only to ignite the minds but also to nurture the ideas of the students.
- EDC is committed to build a strong platform for the budding entrepreneurs.
- The vision is to guide the students to take entrepreneurship as a career, as a path to success, as a journey of wisdom.


- It will invite various eminent entrepreneurs to deliver lectures to educate students about the joys and hardships of entrepreneurship.
- Guest Lectures, Business Plan workshops, Case study workshops, Knowledge Camps, will be conducted throughout the year to involve students in activities that are essential to an entrepreneur.
- EDC will also actively incubate startup ideas by linking the right investors with the right entrepreneurs.
