Experience and expertise at ZCOER, Pune in the areas of management, innovation, and technology networks along with entrepreneurship provide the necessary impetus and intellectual basis for this initiative.
We comprise of faculty, alumni and students of ZCOER, mentors and service providers from the industry who span a variety of functional areas, sectored domains and geographies and are passionately committed to helping disruptive innovations and aspiring entrepreneurs succeed commercially.
We know that it takes more than just early stage risk-capital to get a company off the ground – we enable most of what may be required by entrepreneurs through seed-funding, incubation, mentoring, training, knowledge dissemination and best practice research. We are a young organization ourselves and keep innovating ourselves on ways to proliferate the spirit of entrepreneurship.
The differentiating factor of the committee is its Interest Group, it is a group of members who come together to brain storm new ideas, for exchange of knowledge, have discussions with entrepreneurs and many other activities that inculcate entrepreneurial spirit. The qualities that most of the entrepreneurs share in common are that they are good orators and passionate readers. To inculcate the same qualities the committee will come up with new initiatives like Book Review and Free Speech. An entrepreneur is also aware of his social responsibilities; the committee contributes to the society through its initiative Helping Hand, wherein the students assist the visually impaired students with their assignments and examinations.
We believe that to become an entrepreneur there is no age and education barrier. If you have an idea, go for it. And to support the students with their ideas, seed funding and getting experts’ guidance, the committee is working towards setting an Incubation Centre in the college. The Incubation Centre will be headed by experts from different sectors who will guide the young and aspiring entrepreneurs of ZCOER.
With the full-fledged support from the institute and chairpersons, the committee is heading towards success. And success meter for us is the number of ZCOERians turning to entrepreneurs.
