Amidst the entrepreneurial rise, Entrepreneurship Cell of IIT Kharagpur has already ventured various activities, including the Entrepreneurship Awareness Drive (EAD), a pan-India initiative to spread entrepreneurship in 23 cities across India. Entrepreneurship Cell (E-Cell), IIT Kharagpur is a non-profit student organization, working under the aegis of Rajendra Mishra School of Engineering Entrepreneurship, IIT Kharagpur. With the motive of ‘promoting the start-up culture in campus and beyond. E-Cell, IIT Kharagpur conducts Guest Lectures, Case Studies, Knowledge Camps, Patent Workshops to incite the young minds to take up entrepreneurship. E-Cell also fosters networking among investors and unerring entrepreneurs.
IIT Kharagpur, a pioneer in kindling and nurturing entrepreneurs, now gazes at its students starting up and dominating the entrepreneurial ecosystem of India. However it is difficult for most early stage start-ups to scale up, build their prototype or avail resources due to lack of seed investment.
The Bengaluru Angels is an entrepreneurial eco system where startups germinate, grow and flourish .It is a platform for nurturing and fostering entrepreneurship where investors and startups explore, interact and build business relationships. It offers high quality mentoring and angel funding support to new generation of entrepreneurs who are building enterprise models based on disruptive innovation and confluence of cutting edge technology and sharp business acumen. The Bengaluru Angels works with investors across geographies .The startups are selected based on process driven due diligence.It builds corridors of linkages, business relationships and investments on the foundation of domain expertise, integrity, commitment and trust. It enables skilled entrepreneurs to collaborate with the smartest investors and angel investor networks by virtually supporting all aspects of the investment relationship, from initial pitch to successful exit.
In order to bridge this this funding gap, Entrepreneurship Cell has endeavoured an initiative entitled 'Kharagpur Angel Network', in association with ‘The Bengaluru Angels’,to connect the startup community of IIT Kharagpur with the alumni, investors and other institutional partners looking forward to fund their startups.
