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.
