“Rain water accumulated on the roof top without an outlet, shall bring down the roof. Likewise, wealth without charity will ruin the household of weatthy.”
:- Seth Jai Parkash
Believing on this philosophy, we have always aimed to reach out and give back to the community so also the society as a whole. The Entrepreneurship Development Cell of JMIT was officially established in the year 2006 as a step forward to achieve this goal. The fundamentals underneath were to help our society and economy by creating “job generators”.
The ED cell has been established with the following objectives;
• To create a culture of innovation-driven entrepreneurship
• To act as an information center for planning/registering and executing business ideas through student projects
• To build a nexus of alumni-entrepreneurs, current students, industries and policy makers
• Provide business incubation to early stage entrepreneurs

News & Updates
JMIT in collaboration with Wadhwani Foundation’s NEN has lauched a certificate course “Learnwise” to boost entrepreneurship among the students. Interviews were conducted on 18th and 19th Jan 2018 to shortlist students for the first batch for the course WEF 100.
On 11th April 2017, Ms. Mitrabinda Singh and Ms. Sonam Makkar attended the 4th Indo-Australia Skills Conference at Hotel Taj Palace, New Delhi on behalf of JMIT, Radaur with a purpose to understand both Industrial and Government policy directions with reference to Entrepreneurship and Skill Development. The skill conference was jointly organized by Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) and Ministry of Skill development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE). MSDE is a newly formed ministry by the current government and had their\ first joint committee meeting in April 2017. Honorable minister of state, Sri Rajeev Prasad Rudhi and Joint Secretary Sri Rajesh Aggarwal have put forth the purpose, vision and priorities in their speeches. They have also called for participation from both Indian and Australian industries and educational institutes. Mr. Aggarwal emphasized on triple ‘S’ (Skill, Speed & Scale).
The representatives from Industries have shown concern over our technical education system which is not following industrial needs and it is almost absurd to ask industries to follow the curriculum that is not updated time to time, for example, the CEO of Saral Rozgar referring to their own “blue collared” job portal (as evidence) had made it clear that in India, we have millions of jobs advertised at a point of time and all over the year but the job seekers/ fresh graduates are not able to grab the job due to a deficit of skills (higher importance being on soft skills and other area-wise required skills). Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship is established to bridge the skill gap and is ready to give monetary (loans/grants) or regulatory help in creating world class trainers and entrepreneurs who help in skill development programs and help the government to bridge the gap and produce the required no. of skilled workforce for our economy.
