About Initium

Initium was conceptualised with the motive to act as a channel between students – who find themselves desiring work during summers – and various startups – who find it difficult to get quality interns.So the solution to the mutual problem was Initium – organised in partnership with established startups like Grofers, PickJi, The Home Doctor, IndusNet, etc.The response was overwhelming from the student body that turned up in huge numbers, getting an opportunity to strengthen their CVs and gain essential practical experience. More importantly, startups got qualified interns from the most reputed college in Kolkata, thereby fulfilling a major need of growing startups. Through a unique model where companies set up spaces in college, attracting students to find out more about internship opportunities, the 2-day event was a huge success, with most startups getting their desired number of interns, and over 100 students grabbing internship opportunities. These internships were in diverse fields- from business development to search engine optimisation to web development, and catered to the entire 6000+ strong student community of St .Xavier’s College, making it the biggest internship exposition in the city by a mile.Seeking to replicate and multiply the success of the previous edition, the Cell looks forward to organising Initium, in March 2019.

How will it all happen....?
