The EDC encourages the establishment of student clubs to promote peer guidance and brainstorming. The EDC strongly believes in the power of such activities in promoting innovation and project development.

The EDC also organizes various events like workshops, entrepreneurial talks, entrepreneurial awareness camps, and intra-collegiate competitions to nurture innovative ideas and to enrich the entrepreneurial abilities of the students.


NISP Committee

Innovation, incubation start-up are all buzzwords in today’s world of technological breakthrough and ingenious inventions. Many in the corporate world are now resorting to seeking innovative streaks from College students in the hope that fresh ideas can supercede conventional approach.

We, at MVJCE, have been following the above in practice for the last several years which have seen many of our students winning laurels from various opportunities that have come their way. The student’s methods for innovation and the results can be seen in https://www.mvjce.edu.in/entrepreneur-development-cell/

We strive to ensure the exposure of maximum number of students to innovation and pre-incubation activities from their early stage, in order to support the pathway from ideation to innovation to market. It is our constant endeavour to spread awareness among students, faculty and staff about the value of entrepreneurship and its role in career development. Students are encouraged to develop an entrepreneurial mindset through experiential learning, exposing them to training in cognitive skills (e.g., design thinking, critical thinking, Business planning etc.), by inviting first generation local entrepreneurs or experts to address young minds. Initiatives like idea and innovation competitions, hackathons, workshops, bootcamps, seminars, conferences, exhibitions, mentoring by academic and industry personnel, throwing real life challenges, and recognising and awarding student and faculty entrepreneurs for their excellence, also propel them in this direction.

The strong mentor pool at MVJCE supports the students in the proper execution of their innovative ideas and helps them to develop entrepreneurial skills.
