Entrepreneurship Development Cell

Dhriiti strongly believes in the power of youth to take charge and be the torchbearers for taking our country to the next stage of development. We lack neither resources nor intellect. However, what we lack today is the courage and drive to take a step and make a difference. There is an increasing tendency to fall into the rat race and forget about one’s own identity and individuality. It is with this thought that the Entrepreneurship Development Cell (EDC) at Dhriiti was formed.

The purpose of the cell is to develop individuals across socio economic backgrounds, who have the courage to dream, the drive to make a difference, the ability to believe in themselves and the persistence to convert their thoughts into action. The cell works to prepare a pool of next generation entrepreneurs who, through their dreams and action, would contribute to the economic and social development of India.
