IIM A successfully hosts Entrepreneurship Fair 2011

26-Oct-2011 | News-Press Release

Many social entrepreneurship firms participated in the fair, like Armaan Foundation, Bharat Calling, Radhee and Ekjaa. Harsha Mukherjee from Ekjaa said, “It is very exciting to see the youth of today willing to work in socially motivated organizations.”

First year student of IIM-A PGP, Arshadeep, was also excited by this chance to meet people working in social entre firms. She felt that this was a good opportunity to learn about how startups work in diverse areas before the summer internship process kicks off.

Students from other campuses like MICA, Nirma University, SPJIMR, SIBM and other IIMs had registered for the event. First year students from Fr. C. Rodrigues Institute of Management Studies (FCRIMS), Vashi had traveled down to Ahmedabad for the event. They felt that meeting entrepreneurs gave them an understanding on how the theory they learn in class can be applied practically. They said, “Attending this fair gave us a better understanding how to tackle the challenges in a new venture. We are inspired by this fair and hope to use this experience to set up an Entre Club in our institute with like-minded people.”

Start-ups Vmukti and Proof of Performance had attended Entre Fair 2010. Both companies felt that the fair this year was better organized, with greater participation by companies and students. They appreciated the high engagement with students and also with other firms. They agreed that fairs of this nature would help them build a better network.

Many students found the story of Sri Hari, founder of Tiszta, particularly inspiring. He had started his venture during his 2nd year in engineering college and had graduated 2 months ago. He now has 10 full-time employees and 70 people working on projects. He plans to open a second venture soon.
According to second year IIM-A PGP student, Anurag Bhatt, “The fair expanded my field of vision. As I plan my career it helped me get an idea of opportunities that are not typical, and where I can be the key decision maker.”
