E-Summit @ IIT Bombay

A number of eminent speakers from across the industries, competitions, workshops, food, music and contingents from all over India, that's all the ingredient you require to cook a successful e-summit. Just concluded E-summit 2014, IIT Bombay gave us all a perfect intellectual start for what is going to be a perfect year. The 2 day summit evinced interest of all bright entrepreneurs from every nook and corner of the country.

Organising such events at such a large scale might be a nightmare for organizers but it was a dream come true for the participants. Meeting and listening to your favorite role model and living their life journey with them was one of the many platform that event provided to groom the future entrepreneurs.

On one side through "I have a dream" Mr Anand Kumar was sharing with audience about how a nobody sees a dream, faces tons of difficulties and then ultimately makes it happen, and on the other side Mr Sachin Bansal of Flipkart was showing the extent to which you can flip your wing to touch the great height.

Graduates and post-graduates from different colleges participated in many events. Through Idea-Blaze they solved the problems for start-ups, through "Pitch in" they pitched their innovative ideas, Investors hat provided them opportunity to slip into investor's shoe and judge the viability of business plans of others. Many such event laid ground for them to brush their business, managerial and entrepreneurial skills.

Investor's arena provided a perfect platform for starts-up to pitch in their idea to investors (venture- firms) and get much needed fund to survive in this competitive environment.

At the end as a coordinator I saw many happy, many sad or long faces but the end goal was achieved. They came from all over India, they participated, they excelled, they learnt and last but not the least they enjoyed and will cherish this for life long.
