What do we do?
“All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.”
― Walt Disney
In order to create an active startup ecosystem, the lab focuses on adopting the working style of Silicon Valley. The functions in a very channelised manner. The journey of an aspiring team of entrepreneurs begins by entering the lab with a desire to change the world for the betterment of society. We guide the Startup founders through the steps of Ideation, Validation, Market Research, Business Model Construction, and then Venture Capitalist Presentations. Frequent case studies and discussion sessions on the aforementioned topics constitute a significant part of our meetups.
“It does not take much strength to do things, but it requires a great deal of strength to decide what to do.” ― Elbert Hubbard
Ennovab has garnished multiple startup projects under its name: amIOT: "Bringing network technology to your fields", Hydra: "An innovative attempt to revive the dying waters", Fable: "Online Shopping made even more fun!" and ASCAB: "An efficient SOS system on highways!". The interesting fact about all these budding startups was that they were complete freshmen ideas being executed by the new-age entrepreneurs. Apart from the startup projects, Ennovab commenced an incipient initiative called "Mini projects". The conceptions under "Mini Projects" should be money-making that provide fellow students of the college some kind of service that they can pay for so that its innovators could generate money that can satisfy their monthly expenses to avail its innovators to get financially independent. Some of the ideas under this belt: ENTUNE: Aims at providing guitar lessons at a very low price to the students who are keen to learn, ENRIO: "Rent In and Out" platform that provides students with necessities on rent during the college hours, ENNOTE: a one-stop platform for students and faculty members that provides various features to help them excel in their respective fields and academic curriculum.
Ennovab has organised events for students to get competitive and skill themselves up.
