E-SUMMIT ‘17 – the Entrepreneurship festival of IIT Delhi to be held from the 3rd-5th March, is being organized by the Entrepreneurship Development Cell, IIT Delhi to provide a common platform for aspiring, budding and successful entrepreneurs to interact with each other.
The hallowed portals of IIT-Delhi have been known to breed as many innovative minds as it does impeccable engineers. The students here are known to diversify interests in fields apart from the core engineering fields and contribute to the society in multifarious non-traditional ways.
In such a scenario, the Entrepreneurship Development Cell of IIT-Delhi takes a place of immense importance. It is a body that fosters, nurtures and encourages an entrepreneurial atmosphere for the budding entrepreneurs of the campus, who have an innate desire to solve the problems around them.
In this regard, the Entrepreneurship Development Cell, or EDC as it is better known, organises ‘E-Summit’ a massive three day national event in IIT-D campus, so that the internal pool of prospective entrepreneurs can interact with the entrepreneurial network outside in the entire nation.

With the high bar that E-Summit has set for itself, with past speakers like Chris Cox (CPO,Facebook),one would think it impossible for it to surpass its previous editions. However, the lineup speaks otherwise.
