Student entrepreneurship has always been critical to the overall entrepreneurial growth
of our nation. We recognise that campuses across India differ significantly when it
comes to resources and structures.
Entrepreneurship Development Drive, E-Cell IIT Madras tries to narrow this gap by mentoring and nurturing various student’s teams and entrepreneurial bodies.
We aim to stimulate young minds to grow their understanding of the entrepreneurial
realm. We believe that the nation’s youth plays an essential role in its economic
development, and startup culture has a huge share in it.
We want to bring changes from the grassroots levels, and for that, we aim to establish an entrepreneurial body in every campus across the country .
