E-Cell IIT Madras

Entrepreneurship Cell at IIT Madras believes that entrepreneurship is not just about starting companies, but a pathway towards India’s socio-economic development. Our vision is to make students and faculty ‘entrepreneurial’ in every work that they do. We hope to enable them to solve global challenges as we see students as the greatest capital and intend to nurture them, provide them with opportunities for excellence.

Entrepreneurship Culture in IITM

The Entrepreneurship - Cell (or E-Cell) along with the Team CFI, Incubation cell and Nirmaan strive hard to make your entrepreneurial journey smooth and infuse the spirit of entrepreneurship among others.

Promoting Entrepreneurship

E-Cell aims to unlock students’ latent inventive potential. Not only do we show you the doors of opportunity but we also equip you to walk through it. Through our conference, social events, lectures, speaker engagements and workshops, we're hoping to bring together everyone interested in the startup world and to help students best utilize resources to found or join startups.
