Entrepreneurship Cell, IIT Kharagpur presents Global Entrepreneurship Summit-2019 from 1st–3rd February 2019). One of its flagship events and the biggest entrepreneurial platforms for New-age Entrepreneurs, the GES brings together Eminent Business personalities, Venture Capitalists and College Students to showcase their entrepreneurial endeavours and experiences, and to pledge to take entrepreneurship in India to greater scales.
Major draw at GES is the quality and variety of speakers that it has seen over the years. The previous editions of GES have witnessed Stalwarts such as Sundar Pichai (CEO of Google), Rajat Sharma (founder and CEO of India TV), Gulzar Azad (Country Head Connectivity at Google India), B K Chaturvedi (former cabinet secretary, Government of India and Padma Bhushan Awardee), Rajesh Balpande (Co-Founder at Bookmyshow.com), Sanjeev Bhickchandani (Founder, Naukri.com), Vani Kola(MD, Kalaari Capital) and many more.
GES 2019, like its previous editions will follow the same course. Workshops, focused on building the entrepreneurial acumen of participants are also in the pipeline by companies like Samsung, Microsoft, BSE, IBM, Intel, Flipkart, Amazon Web Services, Deloitte, Calcutta Angels, Vmware and other such corporate giants.
Global Entrepreneurship Conference serves as a conclave for discussion of opportunities and programs steered towards popularizing entrepreneurship across the world. The conference is followed by Connect the Dots, a discussion amongst the Entrepreneurship Cells in India about the Indian scenario and how best to go about promoting entrepreneurship in their respective campuses.
Start-up Camp aims to help Start-ups to recruit the finest talent amongst GES participants for internships/jobs while giving them an opportunity to meet the biggest VC and Angel Investors in India present on campus.
The Global Entrepreneurship Summit, with its varied content and participation, will prove to be the ultimate stage for propagating this cause. Participants should register at www.ges.ecell-iitkgp.org/register for the Summit. The accommodation of students attending for the three days of GES will be taken care of by IIT Kharagpur, for which they will be charged nominally.
Early Bird Registrations have started and last date for early bird registrations is 20th December 2019.
