Initiatives by SIIC of IIT Kanpur:

Entrepreneurship Cell (E-cell)

To encourage and promote culture of entrepreneurship among students, we have student driven Entrepreneurship Cell (E-cell). It organizes various events, B-plan competition, and industry talks. E-cell has also generated the concept of campus entrepreneurs. Campus Entrepreneurs are a group of students in the campus who have either extensively worked with start-ups or have started one. https://www.ecelliitk.org/
