Roles and Responsibilities
With dreams in our mind and passion in our veins, the ‘Entrepreneurship Development cell’ at Department of Management Sciences, (SPPU) Pumba, Pune, is always enthusiast to motivate students by carrying out various entrepreneurial activities and events.The prime focus of this cell is to develop a sustained platform that supports students of PUMBA in starting up; showcasing their skills and structuring their thoughts in the less explored field of entrepreneurship & thereby realizing their ideas and converting them to reality.
The year brought different new eventsand innovative ideas with it. YUKTI provides a platform for potential ideas and early stage startups to evaluate their plan in the risk-free environment of a competition. It also aims to bridge the gap between ideas and the realization of an enterprise. To translate the ideas into reality, B plans have a pivotal role to play. ED cell helps the students of all departments on the Pune University Campus to make viable, workable B - plans. ED cell currently holds a pool of 20 + B plans. On weekly basis all the ED cell members meet at the Studentpreneur Meet and review the progress made on B plans. Also this meet helps in bringing fresh B plans under the umbrella of ED cell. E-day(Entrepreneurship Day) is an inter-division competition which tests the students' abilities as to how they can be better entrepreneurs of tomorrow. The aspiring entrepreneurs from 1st year pitch their 'one day business ideas' to the 2nd year students (investors) through elevator pitch and obtain funds for executing their ideas. EMBARK is a biannual magazine which includes articles from students and faculty members of PUMBA. Also, it provides short & crispy interviews by leading entrepreneurs from industry explaining their journey. However this year we plan to bring it under a much wider scope encouraging students from all over Pune interested in entrepreneurship to put their pen down in EMBARK. We also organize THE START-UP TALK, where entrepreneurs from various fields guide the students of PUMBA for their Entrepreneurial journey.
