Entrepreneurship Cell (E-Cell) of IIT Bhubaneswar aims at promoting a spirit of entrepreneurship in the academic community of the Institute. Started in 2013 as a student-run organization under the aegis of Institute Gymkhana, it is now a Board-approved body (vide 19th Meeting of the Board of Governors held on 29 October 2015) and is recognized as an important organ to create an Ecosystem for Fostering Entrepreneurship at IIT Bhubaneswar. An important activity of E-Cell is to provide mentorship to the students for initiating startups and to facilitate venture funding. E-Cell conducts workshops for creating awareness on entrepreneurship and encouraging technology incubation. An annual fest ‘E-Summit’ organised by E-Cell provides a wider platform to students for interacting with industrialists, funding agencies, and entrepreneurs.
