Vishnu Shaji, student of Final Year Mechanical Engineering has organized a “Workshop at SRM polytechnic college” along with a start-up and Innovator’s Hub on 20th and 21st of August 2019. The workshop was conducted as a part of a feature event that aims to find individuals with the skills to succeed as an entrepreneur or as an innovator.
The first event was conducted at SRM with an audience of approximately 275 students from the age of 18 to 23. The event introduced topics such as Digital Marketing, Pitching, Building a brand and Auditing to the students who participated in this. Our student, Vishnu Shaji, was the host for the event and conducted aspects of the workshop such as organising an on-stage competition for the students where they could implement the concept that they’d just learned.
The first day of the event included lectures from the CEO of the host start-up and also lectures on various aspects of digital marketing and was followed by a pitching competition.
