XLRI holds Entrepreneurship Summit – XES ‘21


Jamshedpur, February 28th: The Entrepreneurship Cell of the XLRI organized the Entrepreneurship Summit (XES), which offers countless entrepreneurs, from high school students to professionals with several years of industry experience, immense opportunities.

This year, XES was held virtually with global reach, greater impact and a gigantic dream to give every good idea and talent the platform it deserves. Numerous events took place at XES, which took place from February 26th to 28th, including Disrupt Business Plan, Emerging Entrepreneurs for Kids, E-Cafe speaker series, Internfair, workshops and much more. With something for everyone, all you need is a solid internet connection and an eagerness to learn, create, and contribute.

Emerging Entrepreneurs (EE) aimed to nurture young entrepreneurial talent by providing them with a platform where they could find creative solutions to address current world problems and give them an insight into the business world. Especially for students in grades VIII to XII, they are introduced to entrepreneurship at a young age and are given a platform on which they can search for creative solutions to tackle current problems in the world. In today’s world, it is imperative for us to provide our nation’s youth with the right tools and empower them to realize their enormous potential.

This year, more than 300 students from 48 schools across the country took part in EE, including young mentors from Stanford, Wharton and other world-leading institutions. In fact, one of the mentors already runs a $ 1.5 million startup that he started when he was 23! In preparation for the grand finale on February 28th, 10 finalists received 1: 1 mentoring from some of the best entrepreneurs at XLRI! E-Cell’s focus was on learning the students and providing them with a platform on which to excel.

The Entrepreneurship Cell at XLRI is a ten year old institution that deals with startups across the country. It also provides young entrepreneurs with access to experienced mentors and is home to XCEED, XLRI’s incubation center.
