XSeed, the idea and initiative cell of XIMB organized "Kickstart- Entrepreneurship Awareness Drive 2016" on 10th July 2016. The aim of this drive was to raise awareness on entrepreneurship amongst the students of XIMB and XUB. The speakers for the occasion were Mr. Rajesh Panda, MD- Corporate Gurukul, Mr. Manish Harodia, Co-founder- Dream Wallets andMr. Ankur Mathur, Co-founder- Socrates Foundation for Enhanced Living in India. Dr. Partha Sarithi Mishra, IAS and MD of The Odisha Small Industries Corporation Ltd was the special guest for the event.
Mr. Rajesh Panda was the first speaker of the day. He spoke about the entitlement mindset of B-school students who feel it is the responsibility of their college to make sure they get jobs. He warned the students that entrepreneurship is not for everyone but once they set their mind to something they should do it. "When you think of a business plan, think globally. You are heading the world", he advised the audience.
The next speaker was Mr. Ankur Mathur. "Entrepreneurs are not risk seekers, they are risk mitigators", he said. He emphasized that venture capitalists want to invest in people and not in ideas. He also warned budding entrepreneurs to be flexible as they will go through a number of changes from the initial idea to the final product.
The third speaker of the day, Mr. Manish Harodia, motivated students by telling them that they will not learn unless they fail. "Aptitude may be homogenous but attitude is what will set you apart" he said, stressing on the importance of having the right attitude. He also said that MBA jargonizes students a lot.
Dr. Partha Sarithi Mishra, the special guest for the event encouraged the aspiring entrepreneurs of the state and spoke about the "Odisha Youth Innovation Fund", a scheme started to motivate and encourage young minds for innovative ideas and entrepreneurship.
The event concluded with a vote of thanks, given by Miss. Sakshi Julka, member of XSeed.
