Our Work and Achievements
Vyapaar decided to launch a marketing campaign BE, to promote and enunciate everyone that Vyapaar believes in. â€œDont just exist, BEâ€ is a result for the same. It says that there is a reason for everyones existence, a role to be played. In its campaign #BE, Vyapaar honoured 10 young entrepreneurs in its vicinity and brought forward the unconventional meaning of entrepreneurship.
Vyapaar recently launched its campaign â€œEntreismâ€ which comprised of various sub-campaigns, one of them being â€œEntrenariâ€, in which we aimed at spreading awareness about successful women entrepreneurs who have reached heights no one could have ever fathomed them to.
For the first time in the history of University of Delhi, a college society came up with an initiative like â€œS.E.E.Dâ€ (Student Entrepreneurship Encouragement Drive) wherein Vyapaar inculcated the spirit of entrepreneurship at the grass root level and made them aware of different aspects of entrepreneurship and opened new doors to entrepreneurial career opportunities.
