Entrepreneurs in Indian Engineering Colleges

Matt McGann from MIT writes about a few about his collegues in engineering colleges who are starting up. He referes to a company called 'Dropbox', which I can say I have heard about before too. (Link)

How long would it take before it starts happening in engineering colleges in India. Right now, all that you hear about is ragging (which I should say I'm not really against, if people stay in the correct state of mind, which they usually do).

From my batch in college, not more than 4 out of a 180 have started up. And this is after two and a half years. While we were in college there was no way we could even think about something like this. Maybe time has come for a change.
