The Entrepreneurship Cell IIT Bombay, a non-profit organization, run by students of IIT Bombay was established in 1998 with an aim to manifest the latent entrepreneurial spirit of the Indian youth. 20 years since its foundation, E-Cell IIT Bombay has been instrumental in providing necessary resources such as financial backing, mentoring, consultancy and networking for the aspiring entrepreneurs of India through various workshops, competitions, interactive speaker sessions and innovative games.
With the motto of promoting entrepreneurship, E-Cell IIT Bombay is reaching out to all the colleges across India to promote entrepreneurial outlook among students by engaging them in different activities of the E-Cell, IIT Bombay. To facilitate this task, a College Ambassador Program was launched in 2012 wherein the selected College Ambassador will interact actively with E-Cell IIT Bombay and would be equipped with tools that would be aimed to bring about his personal development as well as advancement of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in his college.
Since its inception, the number of College Ambassadors have increased every year. Over the years this initiative has not only helped the CRs build a better resume but has helped to gain updates on the recent activities in the Indian startup ecosystem, disrupting technologies, improve their communication, management, operational skills as well.
With the support of our esteemed partners like Oyo, Myntra, Housing.com and Paytm, the College Ambassador program has been conducive to the overall growth of CRs. The top 50 CRs are awarded opportunities to work as an intern with our partners.
This year’s E-Cell, IIT Bombay’s College Ambassador Program is live now. Register at: www.ecell.in/ca
