Internship Mela is the flagship event of Entrepreneurship Development Centre, Vishwakarma Institute of Technology, Pune. It has been a success every year since its inception, and in its forth edition it seeks to do even better the role it was created for.
Pune's Largest Student Intersnship Fair, Internship Mela, is an innovative confluence that brings together the entrepreneurial minds of the industry in the form of Start-ups and facilitates their interaction with the youth.
Start-ups are brought in close contact with the students who have an instinct for Entrepreneurship, fuelling the need to solve the problems of the Industry & society in general.

With several government schemes working in favour of and promoting the inception of start-ups, the number of start-ups is going on increasing. But one problem that most start-ups face is the non-availability of a good workforce that can support the start-up in its ever dynamically changing environment. Having someone from a corporate background adapt to the challenges in a start-up culture can be very challenging.
Several college students are also left with the question of how to pursue their interests. They have varied domains, but do not have the necessary experience in their domain of interest so that they can explore it further. What would help the students is a hands-on experience in a company that would show them how things work, and yet get to play a prominent leadership role where they really fully understand how things work.
In comes Internship Mela, V-EDC's flagship event that is an answer to the above conundrums. We believe that having a platform where students and start-ups can freely interact and mutually benefit is a good place to start. Not only does this mean that up-and-growing start-ups get to interact with one another, but also that they are faced with a massive student crowd, all looking to apply for the company where their skills could work best. As for the students, there could be no better opportunity for gaining experience than finding such a diverse variety of companies in and outside their fields of interest in one place, so as to choose the one to apply to.
It is a win-win situation for all, and this is what drives us each year into this unique activity.
The third edition of Internship Mela seeks to connect even more students to an even larger start-up culture that's brewing. The first edition saw 50 start-ups and about 1000 students. The second edition saw 80 registered start-ups and experienced a footfall of about 2000. This year, the expectation is that the crowd will reach an overwhelming 3000 students across several different colleges, all seeking to apply into as many start-ups as possible.
What are you waiting for? Join us - student or start-up, you're in for a wonderful experience.
This time, Internship Mela as an event has taken one step ahead in making the event more student centric. For graduate and undergraduate students alike, it is important to develop a skill set of entrepreneurship and leadership that complements their technical knowledge. This, we propose to do through our workshop, seminar, and Candid Talk sessions on day one. Shown below is a proposed event itinerary. Upon confirmation, this will be updated to show the actual workshop/seminar details to everyone.
Speaker Sessions: We intend to invite well-established entrepreneurs who can guide students into their specific domains. The focus will be not only to make it motivational, but give students real-life tips on operating in that particular mode of business domain. These will be helpful to the students for entrepreneurship as well as exploration of domains.
The flagship event of Entrepreneurship Development Centre, VIT Pune is the Internship Mela. The third edition of the same will be held on the second of these two days, where start-ups and students would get to interact with each other on a personal, one-on-one basis. Start-ups will also be able to network with other start-up founders and build relations with them. The students will submit their resumes for paid internships from these start-ups and will work for the duration of their college leave of 2 months from college for these internships.
The proposed itinerary is as follows -
