Pitch Please


What’s your BIG IDEA?

The Entrepreneurship Cell, International Management Institute, New Delhi, presents to you its first ever national platform for entrepreneurs during Kritva 2019, ‘Pitch Please’. Today everyone wants to be his own boss. But lack of proper support and knowledge are the limiting factors and unfortunately many ideas never see the light of day and simply remain as ideas. The Entrepreneurship Club wants to be the bridge between these ideas and their realization. The event is aimed to help those who have a prospective business idea in mind and need a platform to showcase it to the world. The event is open to the student fraternity and students from other colleges as well.
