The following are the club’s engagements through the year.

Live Projects:

One of the key activities of the club includes collaborating for Live Projects with budding start-ups. Through this we invite start-ups from various domains to collaborate with Equinox to look for live project opportunities that the members as well as class participants at NMIMS can make the most of. These projects are of immense help in bridging the gap between theory and practice, especially in a landscape that is becoming increasingly Entrepreneurial in nature.

EN-PLUG,the Annual Entrepreneurship Summit:

Equinox concluded the much awaited E-Summit on 15th Jan, 2017.L.E.A.P (The Startup Challenge) and a fun-filled yet informative session by the founders of Mad Over Marketing (M.O.M) stole the show. The Startup Challenge is a part of E-Summit which is the Flagship event of the E-Cell of NMIMS Bangalore. Over the years we have seen some amazing ideas and teams battle it out for the ultimate prize. Year after year, we only evolve bigger and better. The event not only encouraged excellent startup ideas from young minds but also rewarded the winners. Also, the session conducted by MOM was one of a kind. The two founders – Wamika Mimani and Siddhant More shared an incredibly entertaining Mad Talk were fantabulous in conveying their thoughts on effective marketing and the wonders it had worked for various companies.

As we foray into these activities and more in the coming year, the club endeavors to foster a strong network of start-up founders and enthusiasts. Further, we would be establishing an on campus incubator this year to build start-ups from scratch!
