"Pen is mightier than the sword". EcoBiz believes that opinions and a stance against the current issues will be a spark to a change. EcoWriter is an article writing competition where trending topics are given to the participants and asked for articles based on them.

Infinity

“Sustainability in Business” is an overused phrase but very few of us are aware of the initiatives taken in the actual world. To overcome this and raise an awareness about current practises, Infinity, a case submission competition follows the below three-step principle:

  • READ: To equip oneself with unique business ideas based on sustainability (for eg.: Sustainable HR practices, marketing campaigns, eco-friendly inventions etc.) through secondary research.
  • REACH: Discuss the ideas with friends. Knowledge is power and sharing it makes people powerful.
  • PREACH: Make an engaging report on the ideas discussed.
  • Annual Blood Donation Drive

    Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person, the gift of life. More than 38,000 blood donations are needed every day. A total of 30 million blood components are transfused each year. Annual blood donation drive by EcoBiz is IIM Shillong's way of returning back to the society not only academically but by blood itself.
