Before we begin, let’s first get familiar with the concept of entrepreneurship. It signifies the management as well as the development of a business idea overcoming various risk factors to make a profit out of it which has played a very important role in the development of the economy of the world. To simply say, an ‘entrepreneur’ is an ‘innovator’ who can generate unique and new ideas for a start-up.
LPU has produced countless entrepreneurs and has nurtured their ideas and created opportunities for their future. Those students, now alumni have successfully developed their business venture and made a living out of it. One of them is Harsh Pandey, a student of B.Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) has been selected in the Entrepreneurship Development Programme under Skill Vigyan program, Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India.

He has always been encouraged by the quote of Steve Jobs that says, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice and most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” which he follows whole-heartedly and has helped him to focus and move towards his goal.
