“The secret of getting ahead is getting started”. Entre-prise 2020 organized by Entrepreneurship Development Cell of St. Xavier’s College is the first intra-college Entrepreneural stimulation of the year. The prelims on the 15th and 17th January saw a participation of around 80 teams (of two participants each) stepping out of their comfort zone and putting their skillset to work.

The first day of prelims was based on a strategic game based on gang wars in Bombay and solving a case study within 7 minutes. The participants had to showcase their negotiation skills backed by logical decision making and ensure they fulfilled their purpose of sitting at the game panel. Be it playing the role of a corrupt police head or a power- thirsty politician, the participants did it all and with great drive and purpose. We also tested thier quick analysis and crisis rectification through a written case study. By the end of the day, 20 teams had progressed to the next leg of prelims on 17th January.

On day 2, the top 20 were divided in 2 groups of 10 teams each. The 10 teams were further divided in 2 parts, interviewer and interviewee. Jet Airways had rendered numerous skilled personel unemployed when it went out of business. Participants had to adjust the industry average stratification sheets for various job profiles based on which they sat for interviews and locked the best deal possible keeping their secret agenda in mind. We tested pressure handling, confidence, diplomacy and most importantly, making wise choices.

We ended up with our top 10 teams by the end of the day and saw these prelims as a golden opportunity to get the real flavour of the 21st century corporate world.  The finals shall take place on 4th and 5th of February, 2020.
