SIOM, Nashik Launches Entrepreneurship Cell to Foster Budding Entrepreneurs

Symbiosis Institute of Operations Management (SIOM), Nashik added yet another feather to its cap by starting its Entrepreneurship Cell at the campus. With a vision statement of "To imbibe in students the spirit of entrepreneurship
and foster their innovative ideas in setting up new ventures", the E-Cell promises to foster budding entrepreneurs with the right guidance and nurture them in becoming success stories of tomorrow.

The launch of the E-Cell was accompanied by the launch of the Website for the same along with a small Entrepreneurship Summit. The summit boasted of eminent entrepreneurs as its speakers. Ms. Shradha Sharma, Founder, and AVP, CNBC TV18 was invited as the Chief Guest. Also present were Mr. Sujoy Gupta, Chairman, Samraat Group of Companies, Mr. Kartik Raichura, Founder & CEO, Management Paradise, and Mr. Sreelaj John, Founder, iDuple.

The program got off to a good start with the lighting of the ceremonial lamp and the launch of E-Cell website by Ms. Shradha Sharma. SIOM Director, Dr. Vandana Sonwaney, then addressed the gathering. This was followed by a presentation by students on what the E-Cell vision and mission are, what are the planned activities for the forthcoming year, and so on. SIOM's very first success story, Zuna Consultancy Services, a brain-child of six students of the 2008-10 batch also shared their story with the audience. The start-up aims to bridge the gap between academic and industrial requirements, and is currently oriented towards helping SMEs in Nashik. They have already successfully implemented their first project in Nashik, and are currently working on their second. Thereafter, the four guests shared their experiences on how they started off their ventures and their respective journeys towards success.

While Mr. Sujoy Gupta enthralled the gathering with his energy and passion, Mr. Kartik Raichura lightened the atmosphere with his own humorous account of how Management Paradise came about. Mr. Sreelaj John shared with the students the importance he saw in the power of Internet as a means to foster one's ideas, and Ms. Shradha Sharma with all her charisma shared her own story of her journey through being employed at big brands and finally creating a brand of her own -

The event came to a close with an open forum where the students had a chance to ask the young entrepreneur guests their queries and doubts regarding entrepreneurship. At the end of the day, the message was clear - Passion, Determination and Perseverance; "never say die" attitude is what it takes. One doesn't require a strong financial backing or a great technical know-how on what you venture into. It's the attitude that counts, to be an entrepreneur.
