Event Description:

Ek Din Ka CEO was a 2 stage event. In Stage 1 an interest form was floated to students where they were required to select a start-up and expand it into a completely new vertical giving brief details about their growth strategies, financial allocations, marketing strategies and other aspects of the expansion plan. Based on the feasibility, creativity and clarity of ideas, the participants were evaluated by the internal jury and top 4 finalists were shortlisted for Stage 2 of Ek Din Ka CEO.

The event started with the introductory speech of Dr. Suchita Jha (HOD Marketing & Head of E-Cell SIIB) followed with a welcome speech by both the judges of the Grand Finale of the competition - Mr. Swapnakant Samal, HR Head (Policy, Process and Digitization) of Talent Acquisition at Reliance Industries Ltd.and Mr. Saurabh Sharma, the Founder and CEO of The Blockchain School. 

The event was carried forward with the presentation of the expansion ideas by the top 4 finalists followed by a Q&A session by the judges after every presentation. 

Owing to the virtual mode of the event, our judges had to collaborate with each other on a conference call, along with Dr. Jha and decide the winner of the competition. The winner of EK DIN KA CEO was Shivangi Sharma from Batch AB (2019-21) followed by Sheetal Chowdhury from Batch IB(2019-21) as the 1st Runner-up of the competition.
