Entrepret - The first season
North South University Young Entrepreneurs Society (NSU YES!) has a proud history of 25 years and is moving towards further excellence. NSU YES! has been a home for over 150 aspiring undergrads; nurturing and guiding them to create the best versions of themselves. This club, with its benchmark events, has created a name for itself and is now one of the best student-run clubs of the nation.
NSU YES! is a premium business club that specializes in creating a diverse and competent member base. Only the brightest minds get the honor to call themselves YES!ers. The club emphasizes on a professional environment that mimics the nature of a corporate field, thus, allowing the members to train themselves. The alumni of NSU YES! are proficient and are now creating an impact all over the nation
The sole purpose of NSU YES! is to groom the students and give them a reality check of how the vigorous corporate world works and how to navigate in that environment. With that in mind, the club has devised events such as Masters of Ideation, NSUers Meet Corporate Icons and Ad Maker Bangladesh. These events are meticulously tailored to fit the need of the business undergrad students so that they get an opportunity to polish their skills and hone their creativity. However, the club aspired to be a platform that every undergraduate could avail and decided to raise the curtains of a brand new event called Entrepret.
Entrepret came into light with the aim to ask the young minds of the country about what they truly want. This event is geared towards aspiring entrepreneurial spirit among the students, to give them a scope to craft their visions. Through four diverse rounds, the participants will get an opportunity to not only work on their dream venture but also get the scope to receive first-hand constructive criticism from the esteemed judge panel. The participants will also get the stage to impress venture capitalists and grab potential investor’s attention. The rounds are formulated in such a way that will push the participants to think outside the box and come up with innovative ideas. They will be tested on how well they scrutinized their own business model and on their thought process.
Entrepret Season 1 will start off with a workshop on the 29th March, 2019, that will give a glimpse of how grand the event will actually be. Throughout April the four specialized rounds will be held and the first round will be an online round, whereas, the other rounds will require the participants’ presence. Through a screening round, only 6 teams will get to compete for the grand prize of BDT 5 Lakh and only one champion will be crowned.
Entrepret, with its advent, hopes to change the game and spark more interest among the students to take initiatives, aimed to be the change. This event aspires to be a platform that will conjure the most unique business ideas and motivate future participants to break boundaries.
