In an attempt to create an entrepreneurial intent among the youth and inspire them to build start-up ventures, the placement committee of XLRI's Post Graduate Diploma in Management (General Management ) course will organise it's virtual flagship start-up conclave - Ingenium on October 31.
Ingenium is a unique concept wherein start-ups get a chance to showcase their innovative vision and product offering, pitch to the right set of candidates looking to find the right investors, right mentors, and right employers or cofounders for their start-ups.
Each of the sessions of the conclave will provide valuable insights into ever-changing dimensions of the start-up eco system.
The conclave will facilitate a dialogue between budding entrepreneurs, mentors, experts, investors, professional service providers.
Fr. P. Christie, director of XLRI, will address the inaugural session.
The participants in the panel discussions will include founders and co-founders from top start-ups including Amit Chaudhary (Lenskart), Dr Arokiaswamy Velumani (Thyrocare), Ranjeet Kumar (Team Pumpkin), Swati Bhargava (CashKaro), and Tripti Shinghal (Womennovator).
Elaborating on the conclave, Prof. Kanagaraj of XLRI said," Entrepreneurship is a crucial factor in the development of any economy. Entrepreneurs are the alchemists who know the right combination of all those elements required to convert problems into opportunities. Their entrepreneurial mindset can give favorable results even in the midst of an economic downturn and promote and nurture entrepreneurship among Millennials. We are organising the first edition of the Start-up Conclave -2020 as an initiative to contribute towards encouraging and developing an entrepreneurial mindset and to handhold budding entrepreneurs.
