Entrepreneurship plays an influential role in the economic growth and standard of living of the country. The discipline needs to be promoted widely to ensure that the incidence of self-employment increases and also to give a definite direction of growth to existing entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs can change the way we live and work. In addition to creating wealth from their entrepreneurial ventures, they also create jobs and the conditions for a flourishing society. Through their unique offerings of new goods and services, entrepreneurs break away from tradition and indirectly support freedom by reducing dependence on obsolete systems and technologies. Overall, this results in an improved quality of life, greater morale and economic freedom.The emerging competitive scenario calls for a greater thrust on entrepreneurship.

Why EDC at NHCE?
NEW HORIZON ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT CELL (NH-EDC) was established in August, 2011. The Vision of NH-EDC is to educate, mentor and provide enterprising resources to budding entrepreneurs and to build an exhaustive resource pool to aid potential student entrepreneurs at NHCE. NHCE is one of the selected colleges under PM-YUVA Yojana(Pradhan Mantri Yuva Udyamita Vikas Abhiyan), which aims to create an enabling ecosystem for Entrepreneurship Development through entrepreneurship education. Focus will also be on entrepreneurship promotion and social entrepreneurship. Working in collaboration with National Entrepreneurship Network (NEN), since its inception, NH-EDC has conducted various activities for the college students creating and promoting entrepreneurship awareness at the campus. E-WEEK is one of such initiatives where array of activities are conducted raising the spirit of innovation and creativity which are considered as sparkplugs of entrepreneurship.
