Prof Tripathi, with his tremendous knowledge and experience, focused on the entrepreneurial requirements, the different barriers that stop the way of an entrepreneur and various aspects that separate an entrepreneur from a manager. He guided the participants to do things in different ways so that they can work for themselves rather than working on achieving other people’s goals. The session focused on making participants aware that money and risk are the major variables that usually stop individuals from entering the entrepreneurship world. However, with examples of successful Entrepreneurs namely, Ratan Tata, Steve Jobs, Jagdish Ahuja, Garima Arora, and many more, the speaker motivated the participants to convert risk into opportunity for their growth and success.
The second speaker Sai Satish, a young Entrepreneur, the founder & CEO of Indian Servers, Vijaywada, Andhra Pradesh, shared his views on “Start Up Mindset-How to build a Start Up while in College”. He laid down various prospects and possibilities which come with the entrepreneurial ventures in the contemporary world. Sai Satish familiarized the participants about various essential steps which are required to be taken care of in order to carry on successful entrepreneurial ventures. He guided participants with some of the useful websites such as Kick starter, Patents.google.com, Growjo that could be useful for them. The resource person also suggested the participants to keep on updating and hone their skills and encompass a realistic and practical approach for achieving sustainable success in their ventures or other endeavours and motivated them to be active on social accounts such as LinkedIn.
