Yesterday I was sent for a workshop by NEN to MIT Pune with two of my colleagues. We were there to learn something about E Cell [Entrepreneurship Cell]. We had formed such a forum in our college by the name of iT ELF [information Technology Entrepreneurship and Leadership Forum] which apart from entrepreneurship also focuses on developing leadership qualities.
The workshop was to train 2 to 3 members form E cell of 31 campuses present there to understand the functioning of an E cell and how to go about it. The workshop was conducted by Mr. Vinod Shashtri. Mr. Mandar and Miss Yoshima. It was a total practical approach to make us understand how to go about it.
We started off with registration and a few basics about E-Cell or for that matter any committee or forum on campus. we proceeded through creating a two year plan for our iT ELF, segregating activities in different types and then evaluating what all we have done and what is left to be done.
Basically it all was about the three stages- Awareness, Intermediate Knowledge and Regularizing the activities and finally Institutionalizing it.
It was a great experience and we cant wait to impart our learning to our fellow members of iT ELF and implement what we have learned.
