We all share the common belief that for India to emerge as a world power, the youth has to break the shackles of prejudices and inertia that has kept them from starting up. Thus, they require an opportunity of engaging with some of the best Industry Leaders, Revolutionary Entrepreneurs, and Change-makers.

In such a scenario, CUCEED (Chitkara University Centre for Entrepreneurship Education & Development) takes a place of immense importance in the startup ecosystem of the Northern region. CEED has a legacy of conducting most stunning events for students and professionals with an aim to aspire and motivate the youth of the North. And once again taking a step forward in the right direction, they are organizing Surge 0.1 a E-Summit focused entirely on young entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial ventures.

SURGE 0.1: North India's Largest Congregation of Startup Ecosystem Builders

SURGE 0.1, A Chitkara University’s initiative brings together the region’s startup ecosystems and subsystems, venture capitalists, new age entrepreneurs, the academic community, and region’s success stories to a common and interactive platform. The core objective of this E-Summit is to introduce the VCs and industry pioneers to the current startups landscape and to enable entrepreneurs seeking mentoring and fundraising opportunities from the funds pool.

Chandigarh region is often seen as a not-so-mature market for startups to raise funds or to find right VC community for mentoring. The E-Summit is a step to accelerate Chandigarh’s growth towards being an exciting startup market that is a win-win for startups, VCs, and the talent pool.

The incubators are playing a huge role in this entire startups ecosystem growth and these incubators have their own cycle and constraints. The E-Summit talks about their role in the community and how they are such an important success factory of entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneurship is challenging and it is a long yet exciting journey. The founders need access to right mentors, incubators, and a support system (academic, government, and for-profit businesses) to learn the best startups growth strategies. They should see this E-Summit as an opportunity to see their goals beyond the product ideas stage.
