While speaking to reporters at Sambodhi Resort in Bodhgaya, co-founder of Bihar Society and BEN Atul Kumar said: “BEN has been formed to promote an entrepreneurship culture in the state. It will create an eco-system and a vibrant platform for entrepreneurs with an active participation of the global Bihari. BEN would also promote entrepreneurship in the state. BEN was launched to represent the needs of the entrepreneurs.”

Kumar pointed out that this is the first indigenous open forum for entrepreneurs and added that this would be the largest professional and networking conference for upcoming businessmen in the state.

“To mark 2,600 years of Buddha’s enlightenment, the event is being organised in Bodhgaya and the Bihar Society is constantly working towards the revival of culture and history in the state, which made Bodhgaya an obvious choice,” Atul said.

He said the primary objective of the BEN conference is to unleash the potential of the entrepreneurs from the state and promote entrepreneurship to build a better Bihar, connecting entrepreneurs with the investors and discussing various projects, ideas, potential sectors and others.

BEN is backed globally by Biharis like Atul Kumar (based in New Jersey, Santosh Pandey based in the Czech Republic, Tanya Prasad from Singapore, Neeraj Sharan from Canada, Amitabh Bhushan, a senior journalist, Kavee Kumar, Nesar Ahmed and others.
