Realizing the significant role that budding entrepreneurs can play in the society and echoing the mood of modern day college graduates, the Director of the institute asked the students to be job providers rather than job seekers. His thoughts were in concord with the overall mood in the country fueled by the Startup India campaign launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi few days back. He also talked about the value of time and success and invited all the audiences to be a learner.
India Mart CEO, Madhup agrawal stressed on the importance of innovation in idea. The event T2B or Technology to Business was being organised at the time of news writing.

In T2B, NASSCOM will incubate upto 5 Start Ups. A total of 40 teams from BIT Sindri, ISM Dhanbad, NIT Jamshedpur, and other colleges from West Bengal and Odisha participated in the event .
Among other events, prelims of robotics saw big participation from the students. Today, Modex and guest lecture by Mr. Muchkund Dubey, who is a Former Ambassador and Former Indian Foreign Secretary will be the highlights of the event.
The Startup Ecosystem in India is fairly new but a vibrant one. College graduates nowadays prefer venturing on their own after college rather than working for top MNCs. The idea has got further impetus from the government through various initiatives like the Startup India scheme and rationalization of processes involved in creating your own company thereby making your Startup journey less tiresome.
Providing incubation facilities right at the college should be the next step as colleges are the breeding grounds of ideas.
