Lab makes it happen
Ecosystem led actions
Most of the campuses have set up e-cells wherein students explore entrepreneurship through various events, sessions & competitions etc. However, due to their short-term engagements these events lack continuity and hence meaningful outcomes. Lab enables students experience entrepreneurship in a risk free environment before they start their own. Explore how it can help transform your campus into a hub of innovation & entrepreneurship.
