FACULTY AND STUDENTS JOIN IN FOR THE E WEEK CELEBRATIONS AT KMRRC

The E-Week at Kumararani Meena Muthaiah College of Arts and Science was one of a kind, as faculty members joined in the celebrations by organizing a bazaar of their own. The faculty at KMRRC emphasized that it was important to bridge the gap between students and staff members. The bazaar was set up to inspire students and bring out the entrepreneur in them. The faculty also procured materials from alumni members to organize the stalls. The various stalls that were set up included snacks stall, pickles stall, sweets stall, food stall, kanji stall, games stall, saree stall, dress stall, beauty product stall, engine oil stall, book stall and juke box stall etc.

Dr B Hema, Director for Centre for Entrepreneurship said that she wanted to set an example for student entrepreneurs by bringing together faculty members for a bazaar. “I wanted the faculty to participate as I feel that inspiring students is essential, especially when it comes to entrepreneurship. I got a great response from my faculty members who put up a stall each. This is our way of popularizing the entrepreneurial spirit. We had a great response as most of our faculty members are first-time entrepreneurs, having never done something similar in the past. We felt motivated and after watching us, even the students got rid of all their inhibitions.We found value in the NEN course, and if you see, most of our faculty members are women, and they are very interested in becoming entrepreneurs in the near future. What is most important is that our students are now showing more interest in the area of entrepreneurship and we hope to enroll more students into the NEN course.”

SEC Chennai: Breaking barriers, creating wealth and living the entrepreneurial dream

Saveetha College of Engineering, Chennai concluded its week-long festivities held during E-Week 2018 recently. Under the expert guidance of its faculty members like Prof A Gandhi, Dr R Senthil Kumar and Dr N Murthy, the students organized over 110 events, 80 stalls based on 7 themes as part of the E-week celebrations. The theme for the E-Week was, “Live your entrepreneurial dream, break barriers, create wealth, change India.” Students from all batches participated in the week-long festival and were given all the support and encouragement to bring out the entrepreneur in them.

This year, the aim of E-Week at the college was to go bigger, and help every student discover the entrepreneur in them. The faculty and mentors encouraged the students to push their boundaries and become job creators, not job seekers. A plethora of innovative events were organized to bring out the entrepreneur in the participant. The events included challenges like the 50 rupees challenge where the participant was required to create products using minimal resources and market them convincingly. The 30 seconds event conducted aimed at intensifying the spontaneity, presence of mind and persuading skills of the participants.

Business planning workshops were held to enhance the entrepreneurial skills of students and push them to bring out innovation in their entrepreneurial ideas. The workshops also threw light on the benefits of being a job creator instead of a seeker, the importance of planning, time management and so on. Deriving inspiration from the zero-waste village Kuthambakkam, students were encouraged to ‘Go Green’ for E-Week. As part of the competition, they had to buy as many plant saplings as they could and the winning team’s saplings were planted in the college campus. The green initiative however, is not new to the college as SEC students have a dedicated farm where they grow their own vegetables, and encourage self sustainment in the community. The produce is then sold in the campus, and the surrounding colleges.

One of the events held during the E-Week, promoted rooftop farming, a method of cultivating food on rooftops. The practice has ecological benefits and if implemented in large scale, has great entrepreneurial potential. Another prominent event included visits to nearby villages to create awareness on entrepreneurship at small scale levels. Prof A Gandhi stressed that SEC started inculcating the entrepreneurial spirit in students 12 years ago although the word ‘entrepreneur’ hadn’t caught on. However, after the college’s collaboration with NEN and the training has helped the faculty spread awareness on entrepreneurship in a big way, he said. He also added that the interest in entrepreneurship has shot up as the risk factor has gone down in recent times. “The change is due to the number of activities and handholding that helps fledgling entrepreneurs minimize risks. For instance, there are mentors, speedy disbursement of funds, and a great ecosystem,” he added.

Student-initiated, student-led and student-oriented: E-WEEK at Dr MGR Educational and Research Centre

Students at the MGR Educational and Research Centre, Adayalampattu, Chennai celebrated E Week 2018 with great aplomb recently. This year, everything was initiated and organized by the students, and no initiative was outsourced. For instance, be it posters, graphics or pamphlets, they were all designed and distributed by the student community at MGR. The unique part about E Week 2018 at MGR was that every student from every section and department had to participate in at least one event mandatorily. This was done to inculcate the entrepreneurial spirit in every student based on their area of interest. A 24 hour tech hackathon was organized this year to encourage teams to come up with a prototype within 24 hours for a start-up idea.

“We encouraged everyone to participate, even backbenchers who rarely participate in any activities contributed to the events this year. We ensured that although participation in E-WEEK was compulsory, we didn’t force the students, instead we created a platform for them to showcase their skills in their area of interest. The events were well-co-ordinated and there were no delays as everything was done on time,” said Surya, one of the student-coordinators of the E-Cell at MGR Educational and Research Centre.

To promote women entrepreneurs, a separate platform was organized by the E-Cell members this year. To help build their marketing skills, women were encouraged to pitch their ideas as part of a separate event. Events like Rangoli were organized especially for women participants. Innovative products like the solar panel tree (it helps charge 40 devices at once), toothbrush with toothpaste, and studenter app was initiated by the students. They expect to launch the products soon and take their entrepreneurial dreams forward.

Dr J Arunkumar, assistant professor, Department of Biotechnology said, “The NEN curriculum has helped us inspire budding entrepreneurs in our college. One good thing that has come out of the E-Week is that it has brought about interaction among various departments in the college. The NEN training programme has helped us bring structure to the ideas presented by students. We plan to introduce the NEN programme in our curriculum for those interested in entrepreneurship.”

The aura of “E-Charcha” at GLAU, Mathura

The end of E-Week marked the beginning of E- Carnival at the GLAU Campus which was the USP of their entire event. The campus was fully pumped up with the spirit of E-Week. The E-Cell and E-Leaders were one of their kind as they were unique as well as highly enthusiastic. As soon as one enters their campus the big posters and standees depict the sign of grand celebration.

The event included the E-Charcha by three entrepreneurs. The first entrepreneur speaker was Ms. Priyansha Jain, founder of” the_trend_makers_” followed by Mr. Shiv Kumar Sharma, Founder of “Merikitab.in”, he is the alumni of GLAU. The last E-speaker was Mr. Nishant Maniar who is a dropout himself an assistant director “VEER”. All the speakers shared their entrepreneurial journeys with inspiring thoughts which motivated the E-leaders to actually take a calculative risk and make their entrepreneurial dream come true.

Towards the end of the entire session Ms. Prajakta Koli who is a leading Indian YouTuber, runs her comedy channel “MostlySane” joined the stage sharing her story and experience. She made the surroundings quiet lively with her humour.

All the speakers were different in their idea of innovation but were so similar because they were entrepreneurs. What E-leaders rediscovered is “WE CAN, WE WILL”.

Teaching of Underprivileged Children II

27797702_1416759185102219_3742611707319062684_o

IEM E-Cell conducts several charity drives throughout the year that are aimed to better the quality of life of several penurious and underprivileged, living in slums across the city of Kolkata. These charity drives are primarily focussed on education and learning, so that children from impoverished families can learn to read and write and craft a better future for themselves as well as their families.

On the second charity drive, the group of IEM E-Cell members visited the slums adjoining the Rashbehari, and distributed clothes, food packets and stationery articles to about 100 wistful children.

This group conducted classes on primary subjects like English and Mathematics, as well as teach them Arts & Crafts in order to capture their interest, so that more children follow their peers and come to study.

In the end, they explained the advantages of a school education and requested all children to go to school on a regular basis.

Date: 14.02.2018

Time: 11:00 – 15:30

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love”

Hence with the thought of making a small contribution to the society, IEM E-Cell, this year organised two charity drives, one of which was held o 14.2.18. Hundreds including faculties, students participated to make this event a success. For an entire week, we collected clothing, books and various other things which one was willing to donate. Other than that we also bought food like cakes, chocolates, biscuits, etc and copies and other stationery that are needed by the students. Astonishing enough was the response of the IEMians, students readily volunteered for the event. We visited a slum near Dhakuria and had a great time with the people there. Words fall short to describe the smile that sparkled on their faces on receiving the gifts and it was those smiles that depicted the success of our event that day.

Let us see! Webster tells us that it is:”The natural longing to possess any seeming good; eager wish to obtain or enjoy,” or in its abnormal or degenerate sense:”excessive or morbid longing; lust; appetite. ” “Desire” is a much-abused term – the public mind has largely identified it with its abnormal behavior.

SOCIAL AWARENESS DRIVES ON THE NIE CAMPUS, MYSORE

E Week was celebrated across NIE with the intention of celebrating and sensitizing entrepreneurship on campus. The student E-Cell members took to the streets and schools to help the public and students understand the nuances on entrepreneurship. Here, the students were first enlightened on the basics of innovation and the best practices of pitching an idea. They were then asked to pitch their ideas, thereby giving them real-time exposure on pitching to investors. Additionally, 55 students took the E Week pledge, with the launch of their campus startup as well.

Events such as merger and acquisition, plan to paper were also conducted in the schools, where the basics of merger and acquisitions and ideation were thought on campus through fun filled activities. A movie screening which consisted of motivational videos were also showcased to motivate young entrepreneurs on campus. The screening saw a footfall of about 65-70 participants.
An event called “Jugaad”, which was a business simulation game helped participants understand the different situational variables involved while in running a startup. The event saw a massive footfall of more than 75 participants, who fought for a place in the finals. An interesting session called the “back to route” saw both current and student entrepreneurs talk about their journeys and learnings from the system.

A mentorship talk was also given by the alumni Vice President, Onyx where he spoke about the challenges he faced as an entrepreneur, the benefits of being an entrepreneur and the motivations behind becoming an entrepreneur.

Various public awareness campaigns and public interaction sessions like flash mobs in places such as the Mysore Railway Station, Mysore Palace, and the local mall were also conducted and run by the students. The main objective was to understand the attitude and mindsets of people towards entrepreneurship, and help bridge the gap with more people becoming aware of it. The volunteers were then asked to fill in questionnaires to help understand the mindset towards entrepreneurship in India. They volunteers also interviewed foreigners they met at the station to get an understanding of their outlook towards entrepreneurship in their respective countries which was then compared to the models that are currently functional in India. At the end of every campaign, the students then briefed the participants about the reason behind the workshop and the implications it will have on the mindsets of people. The students also visited local shops and interviewed the vendors, to get an understanding of their outlook and awareness about entrepreneurship in theory and practice.

The signature event was a panel discussion which was attended by more than 200 students which was a huge success and also marked the end of the event. The efforts of the student leaders and the faculty made it possible for the event to be a huge success at the NIE campus.

FROM SHARES TO INNOVATIVE EVENTS AND CAMPAIGNS – E WEEK AT MCC, BANGALORE

E Week on campus has always been a gala occasion at MCC, Bangalore. This year was no different. The week started off with a social awareness campaign at Cubbon Park. Here the students were encouraged to understand the nuances of design thinking and its application in the field of entrepreneurship. Some of the events planned with the intent to raise awareness amongst the people were flash mobs, stall setups and a panel discussion. The panel discussion was themed “live your entrepreneurial dream” and was a platform where entrepreneurs spoke about their story and how they got their startups, up and running. All the events were learning specific and was an initiative lead by the college E-Cell to impart knowledge to the students and the public about entrepreneurship.

An interesting event that was showcased at MCC for the first time was the “Startup Crunch.” Here, the students were given the opportunity to pitch to investors and raise funds for their startups. The event ran parallel to the concept of Shark Tank and saw many participants competing for the final honors.

Other event known as the MCC Santhe, a typical flee market was run to help encourage the community entrepreneurs who don’t have mentors and to connect them with the same. A one-day community workshop was also organized which saw a footfall of more than 11k participants. Here, the local entrepreneurs were given a chance to connect with mentors based on a specific business challenge they were facing. This was a conscious effort to help one understand the role mentoring plays in the success or failure of a venture.

The “startup internship day” was a one-of-a-kind event where the students were allowed to participate in an internship drive, whose registrants were only startups. This would not only help students understand what it takes to run a business, but also enable them to imbibe key leadership qualities and abilities to make them the successful leaders of tomorrow.

“The intent of our E-Cell is to enable and empower students and budding entrepreneurs to become job providers rather than just job seekers. Being a women driven organization, it is highly important to make the women have key leadership qualities and empowered them with skill development to help them become more equip in the art of running startups.”
-Prof Sumita, Faculty, Mount Carmel College (MCC)

Amongst other events was a panel discussion which saw stalwarts from various fields grace the occasion and talk about their experiences, insights and learnings encountered while running their startups. A Q&A session, also helped the students gain insight into specific challenges they were facing in their life.

An interesting manner in which the E-Cell raises funds is by selling merchandize such as candles, baked products and other gifting material at the santhe. The E-Cell also uses the system of shares where the students can buy shares and would also receive dividends as per the performance of the event. This is an interesting manner to introduce the basics of shares and the market to the students and at the same time also make profits which would help run the events planned out for E Week.

On speaking with the E-Leaders, the one common thought that resonated was the fact that most of these E-Leaders had seen a significant change in the way they see entrepreneurship on a whole. The additional qualities that E-Leaders and E-Cell members vouch to have mastered are leadership and communication skills which will help make them the leaders of tomorrow, who will further enable the future of tomorrow, to live their entrepreneurial dream.
