Chief Co-ordinator's Message

At the Guru Nanak Institutions- Entrepreneurship Development Cell, we believe that all students have the potential to be innovative; to take their ideas, in whatever context, and make them a reality. To stimulate the entrepreneurship in you, we offer students who are interested in learning about the process of innovation and entrepreneurship through various curricular and co-curricular paths to become an "entrepreneur."

Entrepreneurship is much more than the process of start-up. Entrepreneurship is to create problem solving mindset applicable to pursue innovation in business, personal, and career contexts and an approach to life built around innovative thinking, calculated risks, and proactive behaviour. Entrepreneurship is very important in career for following significant reasons.

1. Entrepreneurial skills will protect you in a weak job market by giving you the tools to create your own jobs.
2. Learning about entrepreneurship broadens your perspective about ways to pursue your career entrepreneurially, rather than on traditional pathways in particular fields.
3. Now a day’s companies seek employees with some type of entrepreneurial experience. Leading companies of all sizes understand that they must innovate to survive and prosper.
