Operated by the non-profit organization E-Cell, driven by the enthusiasm of IIT Bhubaneswar students, the E-Summit unfolds across four impactful days. Its primary mission is to ignite the entrepreneurial spark within students nationwide. The event facilitates interactions among industrialists, funding agencies, seasoned entrepreneurs, academia, and students from participating institutes. Packed with entrepreneurial guest lectures, workshops, panel discussions, a startup internship fair, and an investor drive, the E-Summit has become a magnet for future industry leaders.
With its burgeoning popularity, the E-Summit attracts a diverse array of participants, including winners, volunteers, speakers, and core committee members.

As the E-Summit expanded its reach, the once manageable certificate issuance process evolved into a complex challenge. Manual verification, involving cross-referencing names, designations, and affiliations, became a cumbersome and error-prone task, resulting in delays and operational inefficiencies. This tedious approach significantly hindered the festival’s smooth functioning.
The major challenges in E-Summit’s credential management process included:
- Ambiguities in Participant Data: The influx of participant information led to discrepancies and inconsistencies, making it difficult to ensure accurate and uniform details across certificates.
- Discrepancies in Personal Details: Varied personal information from participants added layers of complexity, leading to discrepancies in the final certificates issued.
- Time and Resource Intensive: The manual issuance process consumed significant time and manpower, diverting attention from crucial festival preparations and impacting efficiency.
- Risk of Errors: Manual verification increased the risk of errors, with the sheer volume of certificates amplifying the likelihood of mistakes, impacting the event’s professionalism.
