In order to nurture the idea of entrepreneurship among the students, SNMIMT started an entrepreneurial cell in the year 2015. The Cell aims at creating an entrepreneurial ecosystem in the campus. It aims to develop and support new and future entrepreneurs thereby striving towards building the capacity of a technology entrepreneur, assessing demand opportunity, developing a marketable product, patenting and licensing, building the right team, raising money and creating value for customer and ventures. The college aims to set up an incubation centre that gives a forum for students to translate an idea into a fundable technology business. The cell also has an objective of equipping the faculty who are interested in and passionate about implementing programs by providing various training. We have around 185 students registered in the Cell
Since its inception, the Cell has taken the following initiatives for the benefit of students:

In order to develop the entrepreneurship activities and motivate the first year students towards self-employment, we jointly organised a seminar on "The entrepreneurship development and start-up policies” with the Taluk Industries Office, N. Paravur. The faculties from the DIC explained the opportunities of self-employment and the various supporting schemes by the government. They also gave the details of loans and other support from the Industries Development Cell. Mrs. Sudha, Taluk Industries Development Officer and Mr. Jithin, Asst. Taluk Industries Development Officer led the various sessions. Mr. Lawrance, Asst. District Industries Development Officer, Alwaye, conducted a workshop. Many students came up with their innovative ideas. It was also decided to conduct more workshops for making their ideas successful.
Date & session : 09/10/2015, 12.40 pm – 1.40 pm
An inspiring talk was given by our Vice Principal Prof. N. K. Sidharathan on "how to become an entrepreneur and how to set foot in the world of innovation." The talk was to motivate the students to create eco-friendly materials and innovate themselves to their future. After the talk, students came up with new ideas on creating eco-friendly goods/materials which will be released as a product later.
