On the second day o the E-Week, IEM E-Cell decided to give a boost to the entrepreneurial skills of the participants by organizing a hands-on activity. The E-Leaders carried out this activity with the help of the Learnwise Platform.

First they explained the importance of empathy in Entrepreneurship. How one must be empathetic to the problems of others and come up with new ideas to solve them. All the contestants were then divided into groups and were given the task to come up with a design of a product with the ability to solve a daily life problem, keeping the concept of empathy n mind.

Each team came up with a hypothetical design on the paper and pondered about the unique features of the their product. They then presented this idea of theirs to the facilitators and the other participants.

At the end of the event the team with the most innovative idea came out as the winners and got a hamper of assorted chocolates.

This activity taught the students of how being empathetic would not only make them a better human being but also a better entrepreneur.
