About Us

Created with the vision to promote entrepreneurship amidst all the campuses in India, and make people realise that coming up with an innovative idea is not rocket science, National Entrepreneurship Challenge is the first of its kind pan-India competition undertaken by The Entrepreneurship Cell, IIT Bombay.

We at the Entrepreneurship Cell, IIT Bombay focus on developing the entrepreneurial spirit of students, which we believe is instrumental for our country to develop. We thought of a channel to demystify the shroud of alienism that surrounds innovation. NEC, which is the brainchild of E-Cell, aims to actualize our dream of a truly entrepreneurial society. It included all the colleges spread across India, and help the participating colleges to discover that they are capable of so much more.Through the National Entrepreneurship Challenge, we envision to help establish E-Cell’s all across the country which in turn will help develop the startup ecosystem in our country.

What’s the challenge? -Making it successful requires immense passion, determination, innovation and knowledge which happens to be similar to starting a successful company.
