Another milestone achieved…
“If you just work on stuff that you like and you’re
passionate about, you don’t have to have a master plan with how things will
– Mark Zuckerberg, Founder of Facebook
It’s a proud
moment for all at XIME as we discover that XIME has achieved yet another
milestone in the domain of entrepreneurship. In the recent issue (January 2016)
of ‘Small Enterprise’ magazine XIME was awarded the 9th rank
surpassing many colleges whose flagship course is entrepreneurship.
XIME has been a pioneer for the entrepreneurship development
program since its inception. Over the years it has consistently raised its
benchmark for the other colleges to follow. Apart from XIME’s famous
Entrepreneurship Development Program (EDP) it has broadened its activities to
other divisions through the Empresario club and the recently initiated Amplifi-XIME B2B SaaS
Amplifi-XIME B2B SaaS Accelerator is an incubation centre formed with the intention to create a startup
ecosystem for B2B SaaS (Business-to-Business Software-as-a-Service) ideas.
The new entity will offer infrastructure,
mentoring, shared resources, and access to corporates, angel investors and VCs
plus credits from partners & service providers for the entrepreneurs
selected through this program.
Empresario club is very proactive in bringing several successful entrepreneurs
from different parts of the country for discussion with the students. This
makes XIME the ideal hub for networking purposes for the potential
entrepreneurs. The culture of XIME promotes entrepreneurship to such an extent
that students can showcase their entrepreneurial ideas well before they graduate.
The best example for this is the E-Shop that was
recently launched in the campus.
jewel on the crown is the list of more than 200 highly successful entrepreneurs
who are a part of XIME’s alumni. To name a few, Mr. Ritendra Banerjee,
CEO, SALT, Mr. Vinay James Kynadi, President & CEO, Herbz International, Mr.
Rajendra Goyal, CEO, Goyal Ispat PVT. LTD., Mr. Sumesh Menon, CEO, U2opia
Mobile, Mr. Samuel Rufus, GluePlus India (CEO), Ms. Christina Ghose, Managing
Director, Stylus Offices, Mr. Harrish Francis, Managing Director, Hybrid
Imaging Solutions Pvt. Ltd., Mr. Sanjay Ramakrishnan, Co-founder &
President, IcecreamLabs, Ms. Rosy Marcel, Director, Medallion Healthcare
Ventures, and the list goes
the hard work and dedication XIME puts in creating budding entrepreneurs it is
no surprise that XIME is awarded with a good ranking. Benjamin Franklin said “Without
continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and
success have no meaning.” Now it is up to XIME to ensure that this continuous
growth and success never comes to a halt and that one day XIME emerges at the
top of the list.
