"Go GREEN" this February...

In this tumbling economy, Entrepreneurship and Startups have definitely become the flavor of the season.With more and more newcomers opting to work in startups, an event like Entrepreneurship Week would definitely be an icing on the cake biggrin

What is E-Week,09
E-Week is a project initiated by the National Entrepreneurship Network [NEN] with an aim to embrace innovation, engage communities and inspire young people to think big.

As per the E-Week wesbite :
E Week India 2009 will connect young people across the country through a range of activities and programs to harness their potential as innovators and problem-solvers. Industry captains, experts, non-profit leaders, and faculty members will be in attendance in large numbers to encourage, guide, and inspire students to take action. In doing so, students will begin to acquire the knowledge, skills and values required to grow high-potential, sustainable enterprises for a brighter tomorrow.
Theme for E-Week,2009
"Go Green" is the theme for this year's E-Week.The main attention would be on sustainable development, green business opportunities and innovative solutions to environmental problems.There would be expert panel discussions on alternative forms of energy, competitions to identify and debate on green opportunities, educational movie screenings, exhibitions to showcase ideas etc.

Green Leader of the week
Mohanjit Jolly, executive director at DFJ is the Green Leader of the week.May be he was the ideal choice since, he is really betting big on cleantech in 2009.In his article "Predictions of 2009", he states that "Cleantech would be most invested sector in 2009"

The event would be celebrated from February,7th to 14th and you can find the complete details here

Himanshu, thanks for sharing!

This is certainly interesting & looking forward to it, although I am not sure how such initiative by large will help the entrepreneurs to work on the various ideas they have, or its just another tag of just another event.

Hey,
@Alok:
Thanks for the comment.This initiative is more at a student level and IMHO this was the need of the hour due to current recession.

This should be an interesting event since it taps the student(preneurs).Well, we need to wait and see whether it is also one of the so called ANOTHER EVENT :)
