Seeded by the BITSAA Center for Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital (CEVC), CEL was setup in record-time in 2003 with the concerted efforts of the institute, alumni and students. The CEL chapter in Pilani co-founded the National Entrepreneurship Network (NEN), along with theWadhwani Foundation; while being funded and recognized by the Foundation as one of the Top 5 Entrepreneurship Centers in India, in the very first year of its inception.

Today, apart from existing as student CEL chapters in the Pilani and Goa campuses, BITSAA-CEL is taking shape as a strong community of BITSian entrepreneurs and other alumni/students interested in entrepreneurship.
