When : Mar 10 – Mar 11, 2018 | 10AM onwards

The Entrepreneurship Development Cell of UIET, Panjab University annually organises a National Entrepreneurship Summit, Udyami, with an aim to revamp the entrepreneurial and corporate sector of the tricity. Running successfully into its fourth year this time around, the summit lays claim to being one of the finest entrepreneurship summits in North India and the only one in the Chandigarh Tricity.
The two day event aims at engaging with the youth through a multitude of events such as workshops, competitions, panel discussions, intern fairs, and networking sessions with influential entrepreneurs, mentors, researchers, angel investors, venture capital firms, and various corporates. The vision behind the summit is to nurture a startup ecosystem that will pave the way for a sustainable and diverse entrepreneurial network where the experienced and the amateur will come together, taking the country’s economy to new heights.
In the previous years, the summit has invited eminent personalities in the economic and entrepreneurial sector for engaging panel discussions. Moguls like Kunal Nandwani (Founder & CEO, Utrade Solutions), Vijay Gopalan (ex-Air Asia CFO), Ramabhadran Thirumalai (Asst Prof, ISB Hyderabad), Amanjot Kaur (Director, IFM), Srikanth Sundararajan (Helion Ventures), and Bahubali Shete (Founder, CEO & MD, Connovate Technology) have previously graced the panel discussions with their opinions and insights. Udyami 2018 promises to be just as versatile this year by inviting speakers and guests from different domains to review various industries from travel to healthcare to startups of the future.
Numerous competitions have been meticulously organised such as the PLAN-A-THON, a game of plans, designed to test your on-field strategy making abilities and number crunching skills. CREATOUR, on the other hand, is designed to test your budgeting skills within a time limit. Participants get to experience being a food critic on a hunt for the best dishes at top restaurants in different continents of the world. BYOC (Bid Your Own Company) is one of the biggest hits, year after year, with participants donning CEO caps for their imaginary companies and getting to recruit new team members, giving them a sense of being in a real auction.
There’s much more on offer at the summit than can be listed out here. You’ll just have to go and attend the event to find out. Book your tickets here.
