Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra has a long pedigree as institution par excellence for engineering and allied sciences. Our decades of experience in guiding and enlightening thousands of young minds to become world-class engineers, innovators and leaders have given us a storied history and alumni network second to none. But none of this would have had happened if we didn%27t provide them with an enterprising environment to inculcate them with an entrepreneurial spirit. The responsibility of providing such an environment on our campus falls on the capable shoulders of Entrepreneurship Development Cell, which strives to foster an open and inclusive system where everyone gets an equal opportunity to innovate, research, ideate, incubate and develop their dreams according to their vision.
Within a few years, the Cell has grown from a handful of members to a team of 80+ members who have shown their mettle in entrepreneurship, technology, research, management and innovation. Throughout the years, we have successfully organised numerous insightful guest lectures resulting in fruitful networks, enlightening workshops and exhilarating events helping students to better shape their future with a pragmatic plan. EDC has proved to be the perfect fusion of expediting innovative startups, generating ideas and inspiring novices to expand their vision and explore themselves. Our success isn%27t limited to our home base only but also across Jharkhand where numerous colleges under our guidance have established their E-Cells. As a culmination of all our time, energy and efforts we have put in promoting entrepreneurship, for the past three years we are organizing the %27E-Summit%27 a celebration of the spirit of entrepreneurship, the largest in the state of Jharkhand. The lessons gained from it has allowed us to emerge victorious in events such as E-SUMMIT%2717 (IIT Bombay) and BITOSA Shark Tank.
%22Don%27t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.%22 In the beginning, everyone aims to be the best, then settles for the good and at last, ends up mediocre. It is the drive to succeed and the efforts required to maintain that drive that separates the winners from the also-ran. I hope that all of you find in yourself the hunger for success and the thirst for knowledge that will set you upon the path of the extraordinary.
