Mile

MDI's Incubation Lab for Entrepreneurship (M.I.L.E.) is the entrepreneurship club of MDI, Gurgaon. We strive to create a start-up culture and promote an entrepreneurial mindset. MILE helps budding entrepreneurs realize their dreams & build sustainable business models. MILE promotes industry connection through strategic partnerships and hosting expert discussions with entrepreneurs who have ventured into start-ups that have impacted the Indian MSME sector.  The club’s long-term goal is to help incubate revolutionary yet sustainable start-ups, provide mentorship to budding entrepreneurs looking to contribute to both the society and the economy by helping improve their business models, connect them with industry leaders among MDI’s alumni and otherwise as well as groom their existing skills.
Initiatives:

  • Startup Accelerator Programme- India Accelerator: MILE has set up a joint accelerator program with India Accelerator (IA) for early-stage start-ups. The objective of the program is to identify potential start-ups that can be nurtured by either IA or MILE including funding from IA and its associates. It’ll serve as a great opportunity for MDI students to gain Entrepreneur-In-Residence (EIR) experience across different domains. With this partnership, early-stage startups can expect much-needed support with regard to incubation, acceleration, capital and insights.
  • Annual Entrepreneurship Summit: Annual Entrepreneurship Summit is the flagship event of MILE. It was conducted for two days, which includes a speaker session, a panel discussion and Disruptathon- a pitching competition.
  • Nation of Innovation: Nation of Innovation is a MUN-based Start-up-simulation competition organised in collaboration with Opsession (The Operations and Supply Chain Management Club), in collaboration with Infinite pounces (Quizzing Club of MDI Gurgaon). The event's structure is based on the ever-famous Model United Nations (MUN), with a touch of business and entrepreneurship. The event observed a gathering of aspiring young minds from the top MBA colleges in the roles of Entrepreneurs, Investors, Corporate Representatives of MNCs, and Government officials, competing against each other under their respective verticals.
  • Venture Wars: Venture Wars is a one-of-a-kind event that allows students to test their start-up knowledge and fulfil their dream of being a Venture Capital Fund Manager. Venture Wars is a Venture Capital Simulation competition conducted along the lines of a mock stock market simulation game within the Indian start-up ecosystem instead of the same old listed companies.
  • Socio Path: MILE, in collaboration with Samaritans, the social initiative club of MDI Gurgaon, organises Socio-Path, a social entrepreneurship competition where participants are required to present their idea of a social entrepreneurship venture.
  • E-Tambola: E-Tambola is a perfect blend of luck and wit. It is organised as a part of Imperium. The Tambola ticket contains alphanumeric characters and images and the clues in the form of questions with 1 or 2 words or images as answers.
