Econovation, the Annual Economics fest of Gargi College which is being organized on 8th September, 2015 is the brainchild of Ecomantra, the Economics Department. The event which is every economics aficionado’s dream come true provides a platform for discourse, discussion, analysis and application. It is a one-of-a-kind economics fest which encourages students to not only question but find answers to questions.

This year the event is scheduled to take place under the theme – 21st Century Challenges and Opportunities. India in the recent months has garnered upbeat expectation regarding its economic prospects within the national as well as international circuits in light of initiatives like the Make in India policy. It therefore becomes essential to assess the opportunities that the economy can optimize on along with the challenges that may block its climb. Econovation aims to enlighten the leaders of tomorrow about the current scenario through its eminent guest speakers.

The Festival starts will witness the presence of Honorable Dr. Abhijit Sen Gupta, India Resident Mission at The Asian Development Bank and Respected Prof. Meeta Keswani Mehra, Chairperson of Centre for International Trade & Development as the speakers.

Ecomantra promises this year’s festival to be a bigger and better learning extravaganza with a plethora of competitions. For all you research enthusiasts, there is the “Econovation Paper Presentation Competition”. If you are a Pablo Picasso re-incarnate and if portraying real life situations on the canvas is your cup of tea, then “Poster Mash” is your sure-shot destination. Tap the explorer in you as your team navigates through the campus in “Beg Borrow Deal”.

If you think you are an economist par excellence, then show your expertise at “Quizbola”. If the ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ made you consider investment banking as a career, then prove your mettle at “Stock Shock”. It is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle a question without debating it. If that is your philosophy then come debate at “Ex-Ante”.

See you there at Econovation 2015, where Economics is the doorway to ecstasy. Don’t forget to register or grab your friends along to be a part of this wonderful journey.
