Established in 2005, ECell NIT Trichy has had more than decade's worth of experience and history cultivating the spirit of Entrepreneurship in our campus by engaging with its students in inspiring and meaningful ways and working to extend this message beyond the campus walls as well. We have a storied history of incubating and assisting with then-nascent startups who are today's leaders, at the forefront of novel disruptions in their field. We constantly strive to find new and interesting ways to ignite the spirit of creativity and innovation that lies at the core of the startup movement.
Ventura is an international B-Model competition designed to put aspiring startups through a rigorous process to equip them with the necessary skills and tools to build themselves from the foundation. Through a journey of 4 months, from mentorship to varied resources, we provide a platform for those willing and able to take the next step in the journey of entrepreneurship.
