Developmental Programs

EDP for Students

Prosperity of a nation and society is measured by the entrepreneurial spirit of its people. Entrepreneurship is a key element of industrialization and economic progress. Entrepreneurs are expected to play vital role in the process of development by introducing innovations and demonstrating leadership qualities in the dynamic situation. Entrepreneurship has been found as a low cost and long – term strategy for ensuring supply of right kind of entrepreneurs in the economy to sustain the development tempo. Educating and training people for developing entrepreneurial capabilities through positive training interventions is the core strategy of the Entrepreneurship Development Programme (EDP) founded at GIET, Gunupur.

Current activities of the cell

Any technocrat is most welcome to join the EDP at the campus. The person must have the “cutting – edge” mandatory for being self – employed and the guts to take challenges. It is time that’s ripe for fresh ideas, innovative products and services. Real estate is cheaper, Government policies are conducive, inflation is under control and the growth rate is steady. In fact, one can smell opportunity hanging in the air. History is a living proof of this. GE, Burger King, Wikipedia, Google, CNN, Walt Disney, Wipro to name a few. All these big names started their operations during the worst of time and made it big. The next turn can be yours. So bring your ideas, your conviction and an open mind.

Student E – Leaders
