KLES IMSR believes in "Entrepreneurs are not born but they are made". So we took an initiation to set up a new cell "E-Lite" in association with Deshpande Foundation, Hubli for the purpose of identifying leadership qualities and to develop the spirit of Entrepreneurship among students and encourage them to choose it as career goal.
"E-lite" intends to inculcate entrepreneurial skills among MBA students and help them in identifying entrepreneurial opportunities. The Cell aims to guide the students who are interested in becoming entrepreneurs to incubate their ideas and thoughts of starting their own ventures. It intends to help students to come out with some innovative ideas which can be converted into viable business opportunities. The cell plans to conduct various activities like surveys, interaction with entrepreneurs, biz plan contests etc. to guide students in their efforts towards entrepreneurial ventures.Starting from the classroom sessions, the students will be introduced to the intellectual basis of entrepreneurship and innovation, and business plan writing through the Entrepreneurship Academy courses. The E-Lite will provide them with opportunities and believes in "learning by doing" Initially, they will identify their leadership qualities and the life goals. They will begin to realize their creative potential. As they grow they will imbibe the required resources through classroom sessions relating to innovation and entrepreneurship, simulation exercises and entrepreneurial action learning experiences. They will be interacting with entrepreneurs and certainly will be motivated by their inspiring stories and advice. At every necessary step, resources are provided to the students. At the end, they will be ready to present their ideas, implement their business plans and compete in the ever-changing market place.
