National Institute of Engineering (NIE), Onyx
Onyx, the E Cell at the National Institute of Engineering, Mysore was set up to foster the spirit of entrepreneurship among students and encourage them to think out of the box. Its vision is to enhance the entrepreneurial, creative and managerial skills of members.
The core committee of the E Cell consists of E Leaders, who are mentored and guided by the Faculty Leaders. Onyx, currently, has more than 200 members who are motivated through talks by entrepreneurs as well as exciting, innovative programs and competitions.
Onyx has tied up with the NIE Centre for Renewable Energy and Sustainable Technology (NIE CREST) to contribute to solving the energy crisis in our country through awareness and installation of NIE CREST’ eco-friendly products, especially in rural areas. In the first year since it was formed, Onyx has made tremendous progress by bagging the “Nilima Rovshen Creativity and Innovation Award” and has been adjudged “E Week India Runners Up” for its performance in E Week 2010.
Is expensive office space a major constraint for bootstrapping startups?
Posted by Nitesh Chandra 2 years 36 weeks
Let's face it, office space doesn't come cheap and there is only so much we can do from home. To build a team, to have the interest of potential recruits/customers, a decent office is essential. It also adds greatly to one's productivity for sure.
So, how are the startups meeting this challenge? Any innovative ideas/offers?
One offer that I know of and am currently availing is the 3-month complimentary Regus Businessworld Gold Membership by EFactor. http://www.efactor.com/toolbox/regus
