On 4th April 2009, Symbiosis Institute of Operations Management (SIOM), Nashik added another feather to its cap by starting its Entrepreneurship Cell at the campus. With a vision- “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, YourStory.in 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 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.
