Sensitize to society

 

Social Initiatives and Enterprises:

Startup for being sustainable needs to be financially rewarding, but we want students to be more sustainability driven and not just purely profit driven.
We believe every startup should be a social enterprise. This philosophy cannot be pushed onto students but we can let them learn through examples, experience and time. We organize several social initiatives and run social enterprise.

 

Events conducted to fulfill this objective:-

Kartavya
