Our Journey

In 2015, inspired by a desire to instil an entrepreneurial culture in NIT Durgapur, a group of three friends decided to start the first independent Entrepreneurship Cell of the College. What began as a small endeavour by three young minds has today risen to stand tall with over 70 members, achieving unimaginable things in just a span of few years. This journey would have never been possible without EDC’s incredible alumni who have worked ever so tirelessly to take the clubs to the height it has scaled. Today, EDC proudly figures among the most prolific entrepreneurship cells of the country, and we only hope to get bigger and better in the years to come!
