On February 7, the third edition of Entrepreneurship Week India was launched across the country with almost 400,000 students and professionals showcasing their entrepreneurial spirit â€“ double the number of participants from last year. Run by the non-profit National Entrepreneurship Network, a Wadhwani Foundation initiative, E Week India is designed to improve the countryâ€™s entrepreneurial ecosystem by educating the youth about entrepreneurship and exposing them to opportunities in todayâ€™s India. Held from February 7-14, E Week India is highlighting green business opportunities and sustainable development.
As part of the week long celebrations, E Week Partners and Hosts are organizing more than 3000 entrepreneurship activities across 30 cities and towns. These activities include panel discussions, movie screenings, seminars, workshops, cycle rallies, free emission checks, and even â€˜greenâ€™ fashion shows. Daily updates and pictures from these activities are available at E Week Yatra. In addition, many E Week celebrants renewed their vow to continue building an entrepreneurial India by taking the â€œE Week 2009 Pledgeâ€.
