The Entrepreneurship Awareness Drive (EAD) is one of our major flagship events, the other being the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in January.
The EAD consists of a series of Guest Lectures and Workshops in 20 cities in 20 days in the month of October. Each city plays host to an Entrepreneurship Awareness Camp (EAC), where eminent entrepreneurs and industry leaders counsel students about the pros and cons of entrepreneurship as a career and how it differs from the usual run-of-the-mill job culture that has existed till now.
Each EAC also features a Networking Session, where Startups, Students and the Guests can freely interact as well as a Startup Pitching Session, where the startups attending a session get a one-on-one interaction with the Guest Lecturers.
Though the event is a one-day event, the students are followed up and are encouraged to take part in our Business Plan Competitions and take their ideas a step ahead .
