With the onset of the Indian Govt. emphasizing the importance of Entrepreneurship, the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched his ambitious “Make in India” program last September, pledging to lower barriers to doing business and promote foreign investment. He is hoping to transform Asia’s third-largest economy into a manufacturing powerhouse like China.
Keeping in mind the vision of our honourable P.M, the K.C. College of Engineering took an initiative to set up an Entrepreneurship Cell (E-Cell) for its students with a view to motivate budding entrepreneurs to establish their own start-ups. E-cell is a student’s organization dedicated to promote the spirit of entrepreneurship among the students. The idea of establishing this Cell initiated, developed and executed by Dr. Puja Rai (Director of institutional development) &Professor Yogesh K under the kind and benevolent guidance of Dr. Harrsh Khanna (Chairperson).
The inauguration of E-Cell was held on 27th January, 2016. Dr. Vikram Shete was invited as the Chief Guest at this event. Dr. Vikram Shete is the convener of E-Cell in St. Francis Institute of Technology, Borivali West. He was felicitated by the Managing Director of KC College, Dr. Sai Kiran Khanna.
The event continued with business model presentations of some already existing entrepreneurs from our college. Mr. PramodRaut: “Tiny Silicon”, Mr. Kirti Kumar Shahi: “lifeatthane.in”, cofounders of “The Four Brothers”, “Meirtech Solutions”, and “Biggtime entertainment” presented their business ideas. These students were also the founding members of KC E-Cell. Their ideas were truly innovative and revolutionary. It gave a moral boost and self-confidence to the students.The Event finally concluded with some encouraging words from our Principal, Dr. Hansraj Guhilot, who himself was a dynamic entrepreneur and has several patents to his name.
KC E-Cell is established to explore the raw talents from our college and give them the correct exposure to develop their ideas. There are many students amongst us who have innovative ideas, but without proper guidance executing the ideas might be a tough job. KC E-Cell is committed towards motivating the students to develop innovative ideas and guide them to execution.
The importance of life changing ideas was emphasized by one and all which lead to the birth of KED (K.C. Entrepreneur Development) talks which would primarily be focussing on the inspiring talks that would be delivered by well set entrepreneurs and motivators to imbibe the seed of entrepreneurship into the young. The KED talks invites at least one entrepreneur talk in a month, which would eventually be fortnightly hosted.
