CEED is an entrepreneurship development endeavor of Chitkara University to develop a mind set of being an entrepreneur while a student is in its academic tenure. Most of the big startups like Facebook, Google, Flipkart and lot many more are born out of an academic environment. CEED has a structured setup where it has 2 entrepreneurship development cells which are run by the students under the guidance of a dedicated mentor. One E-Cell is at Chitkara University Himachal campus, where Dr. Neha Kishore is the mentor and one E-Cell is at Chitkara University, Punjab Campus where Dr. Adarsh Kumar Aggarwal is the mentor.
Once the students move out of the University, till plan to continue their entrepreneurship projects they are moved and provided space at Chitkara University Innovation Incubator near Chandigarh IT Park. The Incubator already has 40+ startups successfully functioning.
E-Summit brings together the region’s startup ecosystems and subsystems, venture capitalists, new age entrepreneurs, academic community, and region’s success stories to a common and interactive platform. The core objective of this ESummit is to introduce the VCs and industry pioneers to the current startups landscape, and to enable entrepreneurs seek mentoring and fundraising opportunities from the funds pool.
Chandigarh region is often seen as a not-so-mature market for startups to raise funds or to find right VC community for mentoring. The E-Summit is a step to accelerate Chandigarh’s growth towards being an exciting startup market that is a win-win for startups, VCs, and the talent pool.
