Apex MBA Team organized “Apex Entrepreneurship Development Program” from August 3 to 11, 2016 with the major objectives to impart basic managerial knowledge and understanding on entrepreneurship, and develop necessary entrepreneurial skills among the participants. The eight-day workshop saw the participants involve in classroom learning, product selling, and experiential learning for idea incubation to idea execution.
First day of the program featured a video reflecting experiences and learning from last year’s program and guest lecture on entrepreneurship followed by a case study session pertaining to business ethics. As the second day saw a presentation on Social Entrepreneurship and product confirmation for selling day, third day was marked as the Selling Day. The participants got a platform to exhibit ideas, creativity and innovation, and plan to design and sell the products on the day.
