- US – UTTARAKHAND ENTRERENEURSHIP SUMMIT
The US – Uttarakhand Entrepreneurship summit took place in a lapse of 2 days i.e 29th and 30th of January, 2015 which was first of its kind. Many established Entrepreneurs and dignitaries from US and Uttarakhand had come to whole heartedly be a part of this summit. But the best part of this summit was the participation of young budding entrepreneurs i.e us. The presence had brought an overall impact on not just the event but the students too. The governing debates on Framework on economic development , public policy on development, Small business development and Entrepreneurship using business skills had created an outgrowing serious atmosphere of focused links between Entrepreneurship and its development in India and USA. There were loopholes, there were throat cutting instances, healthy arguments, cross questions, debates but what made it different as one of the most memorable events in the book was our participation that helped us build connections with established personas. It was a place where very individual was given a free platform to express himself and interact without free. Be it your idea, a general question, misconception, support, disagreement etc all were interactively supported.
- NATIONAL VENDOR DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
On an aspiring note, Start ups from our University got a huge platform in IIT Roorkee, known as the centre of Entrepreneurship for Uttarakhand to resent their plans and explain to authorities. This took place on 14th February.
National Vendor Development program also took place from 12th to 16th of February ,organised by Industrial Association of Uttarakhand where 6 startups which are Tyre re-inflating methods, multi fuel neelam chulha, micro fluidic device, fuel injection system, porcelain insulators, paradrone etc of our college had presented their ideas to the companies for commercialising their idea on a large scale. This one on one talk with some eminent officials can prove to be a turnover. If the idea would be feasible, it will be incubated and funded under various schemes of Government of India opening many further opportunities to showcase their idea on real ground.
