Entrepreneurship Development Cell


Entrepreneurship is a mindset that can be developed by any student who aspires to become an employer. The increasing demand and recognition for Innovation and Entrepreneurship for ensuring the welfare of the society and economic growth of an individual have motivated this great leap forward to promote the Entrepreneurship Development Cell. The Entrepreneurship Development Cell (EDC) in the college was inaugurated on 3rd February, 2007 by Sri. B.V.R. Mohan Reddy, CEO InfoTech Enterprises. With proper motivation, Entrepreneurship can be inculcated into the minds of young professionals.
