About Us

E-Cell is a holographic abbreviation adopted by the entrepreneurship club of IIT Mandi. It's an alumnus initiation and currently is the stewardship of a team of five inter-disciplinary students with the mentorship of Dr. Satvasheel Powar, churning their ideas to reach the various aspects of what lies in this "business" of reaching the society. And as the name celebrates our crazy love for subjects related to business and its disciplinaries we always strive to give a glimpse of the potions of business by conducting multifarious of events.
