About IIED Cell

With increase in population, the number of students enrolled for professional courses has increased. Most of the students ideally expect to seek job opportunities in best companies, with best profiles and best pay packages. Most of the well-known, established companies are saturated with sufficient and suitable manpower required for the fulfillment of the projects available with them. New companies MUST be established to get more employment opportunities and absorb employable new aspirants.  It has become difficult for the new aspiring candidates to secure suitable job opportunities in reputed organizations as per their interest and choice of their domain knowledge. These aspirants end up in doing the jobs, which they never thought of, never wanted for. To overcome these debacles, students must do their SWOT analysis and choose their streams of education and career wisely. Entrepreneurship as a career option is the need of the hour and must be thought of at an earlier stages of education and career. To understand and meet the innovations, entrepreneurship challenges, we need to create an Entrepreneurship Ecosystem. The aspiring candidates with entrepreneurial potential must be a part of this ecosystem and must be incubated to learn the tricks of the trade/ entrepreneurial journey.
