Entrepreneurship Cell, IIT Roorkee is organizing its annual flagship event- E-Summit 2020 on 1-2 February. It is a networking hub for corporates, professionals, students and budding entrepreneurs from all across the nation.

Th event aspires to provide entrepreneurs with the best possible experience, opportunities and an avenue to enrich themselves with knowledge about the entrepreneurial world.

With the theme, “Disruption Dilemma” the aim is to create an impact and keep on innovating. In a startup journey, there are three major stages: 0, 1 and n.

At 0, you are just beginning and your idea is all you have. At 1, you have your startup established. At n, your startup is expanding and scaling-up. This event wants to disrupt the usual flow of the way things work. In the journey from 1 to n, every startup while scaling-up faces a lot of disruptions.
