Entrepreneurship Development Cell

An entrepreneurial spirit can aid even the most academically accomplished student to go that extra mile in realising their dreams. Entrepreneurial skills are best inculcated from one’s student days onwards, and SSN firmly believes a complete education includes this kind of orientation.
