3-day event packed with simulation, gaming, mock auctions and internship fair
A perfect amalgam of technology and enterprise, the fourth edition of E-Summit 2021 offered a host of exciting events. The online summit was organised by the Entrepreneurship Development Cell (EDC) of the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Durgapur, from April 2 to 4. It’s the second largest e-summit in eastern India.
“Organising a virtual E-Summit of this scale was not easy. Our team worked day and night to make everything fall into place. We presented entrepreneurship in a fun and engaging format to youngsters through our events and guest speakers,” said EDC president Rima Roy, a fourth-year student of electronics and communication engineering at NIT Durgapur.
Each event was unique and engaged participants fruitfully. We bring you glimpses of the festival:
-- Gaming enthusiasts flocked to Ring of Rivals, which allowed participants to demonstrate their skills at the shooter game, Valorant, with India’s top streamers like Antidote, HellrangeR and hikkA. The event managed to raise more than Rs 11,000 for underprivileged children. You can tune into the action here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpfjHc49pu8).
-- Budding entrepreneurs found fodder at RANNIT-E, where they had to analyse interesting cases and prove their skills in risk management and decision making.
-- Another popular choice was PitchFest. It asked students to present their start-up ideas to a panel of renowned investors, with the prospect of winning funding and mentorship services.
-- Like its name, Corporate Espionage showed the murky side of the corporate world in a simulation made for the teams, where a company underwent its greatest crisis.
-- Cricket fans were in for a treat at Auction Arcadia, a mock auction where participants had to analyse every game, strategise their purchases and create the perfect team on a budget.
-- School students weren’t left out. Quiz-a-preneur 2.0 was a flagship quizzing event for students of Classes VIII to XII, aimed at bringing out their inner entrepreneur.
-- The Internship Fair received an overwhelming response from students, with over 250 registrations and participation from 14 companies.
