BEAT - LICET Entrepreneurship Cell
The entrepreneurship cell of LICET (BEAT – Building Entrepreneurship Among Techies) is a student – run body that aims at instilling the spirit of entrepreneurship among the students. The core objective of BEAT is to help the students to realize the importance and the power of entrepreneurship through workshops, guest lectures, innovative games and competitions. They are supported with necessary resources such as fund, mentoring, consultation and networking. The cell was inaugurated on 27th August 2015 and 150 students volunteered as members till date. As one of the initiatives, the cell has started a stationery and a refreshment shop in the college premises. The shop also serves as a platform to sell their handcrafted products. The cell is planning to conduct a series of activities in the forthcoming years. Some of them include inviting entrepreneurs and business school professors to teach the basics and nuances of entrepreneurship. We have also planned to have business plan competitions and promote new initiatives by the student members.
