JLU- Startup Week 2021

Jagran Lakecity University was recently awarded the Diamond rating by QS I∙GAUGE, and became the 1st in Central India to achieve this feat.


The University showed outstanding performance in ‘Teaching & Learning’, ’Employability’, ’Entrepreneurship’, getting the PLATINUM ranking in these three, which were the main contributors for the overall diamond ranking


JLU hosts a good number of entrepreneurship programmes for students on a regular basis and the stakeholders of the institution indicated entrepreneurial aspirations and/or associations that can be attributed to the ‘JLU Incubation Centre’ that has incubated 5 business ideas.


JLU has many student/alumni run startups that are at different stages of their lifecycle.We have identified 5 of them viz. Pinakulo, Beyond Books Organization, Taalmell, Soqo and EarnYoung. Featuring one startup each day from 20-24th September, JLU has planned a grand event on 24th September 2021, in which these founders would be joining us in JLU SEH.
