Social ventures

Learning from the experienced is always enriching.

So when XLRI alumnus Kumar Ankit interacted with the B-school students on how to become an entrepreneur on Tuesday, the 360-odd management students took home many valuable tips. The interaction was a part of On Becoming a Social Entrepreneur — a regular event on the XLRI’s annual calendar.

Tuesday was the first session of the event this year. The objective behind inviting successful entrepreneurs is to motivate others to start their own venture.

Ankit, a business management student from 2011 batch, successfully runs his venture Green Leaf Energy Pvt Ltd, a biofuel company in Gaya. His is also a social enterprise.

“To know how to pursue my business I joined XLRI,” said Ankit, thanking the B-school for convincing his parents to allow him take the risk.

“I opted out of the placements without informing my parents and that was a big decision. I thanks my teachers and friends who helped me a lot,” said Ankit.
