Reversing Into Autarchy, was a national level business fest organized by the Entrepreneurship Development Cell which witnessed participation of students from all over the country, planning, strategizing, formulating, designing, and pitching their ideas to survive and lead in the corporate world. Six on-campus events took place on the basis of the various traits and qualities of entrepreneurship, during the three days of the event. These included events based corporate strategy, marketing, finance, social entrepreneurship, and law, meticulously designed to provide an enthralling experience to all participants.Apart from simulation events, Biztatva’18 also consisted of many speaker sessions including Mr. Raghunath Medge, the President of the Mumbai Dabbawalas Association, Mr. Awdesh Singh, prolific writer, IITian and ex-IRS officer, Bhanu Prakash, and a panel discussion on women entrepreneurship by Ms. Swati Gautam, Ms. Nilisha Agarwal, Ms. Rashmi Bansal, and Ms. Temsutula Imsong. These three enthralling days came to a successful end as St. Xavier’s College, Kolkata was declared the winner of Biztatva’18 followed by JD Birla Institute.
I would give you 7.5/10 on your inputs, which is brilliant. Pulling off such an event is commendable. I’m glad to have been a part of BizTatva and look forward to continue my association with EDC over a long horizon.
B-plan events at commerce colleges are myopic usually because of the limited technical skillset that the stream provides. But the format adopted by EDC for their event, The Pitch at BizTatva eliminated this drawback so well and in fact made the event interesting throughout the 3 days of its run.
I have been associated with EDC since its inception. And the growth that EDC has displayed is tremendous. From a stand-alone intra-college business plan event to a 4 day National Entrepreneurial Simulation Convention. It has been an out-of-the-world experience.
The Pitch at BizTatva has been one of the greatest business plan events I have been a part of, in terms of format. I was doubtful about its execution, but the EDC members were confident and the same reflected on the day of the event where everything was so professional and smooth. Didn’t look like a first-time event at all.
EDC has been the most beautiful journey of my life. Right from day one, you get the feel of a startup along with a vision to take it to heights unfathomable. The growth opportunities here were immense, which started with expanding horizons through interaction with students from various disciplines to maintaining unity in diversity. The best thing was to start from zero, a clean slate. It offered flexibility of designing new events without questioning our ability to pull it off. Ultimately, EDC was like living on the edge of a cliff and I am happy to have pulled it off.
