Delhi University is known for its varied and vibrant societies. Apart from academics, these societies give a much-needed respite, as they allow room for proliferation of one‚Äôs own ¬†interests. You can be your own muse while you decide which path to follow, as our very own university has a lot to offer.
While some societies elevate and preserve your already acquired talent, there are others which give you a glimpse of the real world. The Entrepreneurship Cell is one society which ensures carving out the hidden entrepreneur in the students eyeing a lucrative position in the corporate world.
Here are some of the Best Entrepreneurial societies to look out for in DU:
