What do you need to start off a business and flourish in your endeavours? Idea, execution, investment, motivation, failures, success, and the list is never-ending.
Apart from all this what you need is experienced people who can help you, advise you, recommend you the best ways to proceed with your idea, guide you so that you don't get deviated, assist you financially - is that too much?
Well, that's just a gist of all that you need in your entrepreneurial journey or for that matter in your professional life. And, here's how 2,500+ students were recently given a chance to figure out their entrepreneurial journey.
In 2017, more than 1,000 startups emerged in India's tech world which means there's tremendous scope if you want to step into this ecosystem of unexplored opportunities. e-Entrepreneurship Cell of RGPV, Bhopal recently organised its two-day annual flagship event 'Imprenditore 2.0' to create a myriad of entrepreneurial and employment opportunities which amassed the interest of more than 2500 students with Internship Fair, Startup Expo, Pitch your idea and speaker sessions.
Here are the highlights from the same:
The annual flagship event of the organisation was aimed at bringing together students with innovative start-up ideas as well as the desideratum for establishing one. The two-day event with the slogan LEAD | LAUNCH | ESTABLISH was organised on February 8 and 9 at RGPV campus, Bhopal.
A series of expert talks were delivered by Mr Mayank Pratap, CEO, Engineer Babu, and Mr Jitendra Tiwari, Limca Book Record holder on the first day of the event.
Mr Mayank enlightened the students about the strategy they need to employ to achieve their goals and also how to fully utilise their time.
On the final day of the event, Mr Parwani, CEO OPPO Digital India interviewed 60+ candidates for internships. He also had an interactive session with the students and solved many of their queries. Prof Gupta (Vice Chancellor, RGPV), was also present during the event. He explained how innovation in existing businesses can lead to startups.
This first of its kind event in Central India was organised with the aim to bridge the gap between students and the corporate ecosystem. The event, in particular, amassed the interest of 1500+ students spanning nationwide. The test opened the doors of internship in 30,000+ national and international companies registered with Internshala, the internship partner for the event, in addition to the 20 companies that include tech giants like Oppo, WittyFeed, CRISP, Netlink and many more. The internships offered were from different domains such as creative, technical and administrative.
More than 40 unique ideas were received, out of which top 10 were shortlisted to present their business plans in front of the prospective 'VCs' and 'Angel Investors'.
The participants were also provided access to five workshops and webinars before the event to help them pitch their idea, and efficiently build and showcase their business plan and how to present it in front of the investors.
A platform for already established start-ups to exhibit their product amongst the masses and gain the potential customers also witnessed registrations of 20+ established startups out of which five were selected to present their product in front of the masses as well as the investors. These start-ups were also open to the investors to fund or invest in them.
Imprenditore 2.0 provided an impressive line-up of events catering to diversified interests of the participants. The event already marked its presence on the central stage by amassing 2500+ registrations under different categories of events.
e-Entrepreneurship Cell RGPV celebrated the successful execution of the event, and plans to organise more such events soon. You can find all the updates at ecellrgpv.
