The Entrepreneurial Development Cell of Shri Ram College of Commerce held its annual fest, Eximius on the 12th of February. However, the flagship event was the Internship Fair, which was held on Tuesday the 11th of February.
Powered by the ‘10,000 Startups’ program by NASSCOM, the Startup Jobs Fair was presented by Find Your Great Work to promote budding entrepreneurial talents. Over 300 students from various universities and about 15 startup initiatives participated in the event, including well known companies like Zomato and Dineout and others such as Felximoms and Inc42. The day kicked off with representatives from various companies presenting and pitching their startups to the students. The keynote speaker was Siddhartha Sharma, the founder of Success Monks. Being an experienced speaker, his speech touched a chord with every student in the house. He spoke on the topic ‘Passion into Profession’ and talked about how over half the working population hates their job. Encouraging young minds to think beyond the defined norms of employment options, he ended with an amusing story and thought provoking message, “… Are you cutting the tail off of your fish because someone in your family once had a small frying pan?”
An interaction session followed, allowing students to get to know each startup better. The students then sat for GD’s in groups of 10 and the selected candidates subsequently gave interviews of the startups of their choice. The results are yet to be announced.
