“It’s not about ideas. It is about making ideas happen.” This quote above is something which one of our many exciting clubs, the E-Cell, keenly follows. The whole essence lies in its learning. And making the learnings work, practically. The club has an amazing tradition of being organized and updating itself with its activities. It mainly aims on training its members on various aspects of entrepreneurship, as well as developing in them the different skills required for it. It is most interesting to work together as team, and in the running, enables an indefinite learning process. In recent times, the E-Cell had a meeting on which it enumerated to its new members, on how to start a venture. The adjoining issues and concerns such as financing problems, personal economic state, the country’s economic problems, the idea of out-of-the box thinking and much more were highlighted and discussed in depth. It also targets to have workshops and indulge in competitions conducted by various other institutions. The club surely has a ubiquitous mixture of learning and creating, and within no time, we would have booming startups from our very own E-Cell.
