The next speaker was Mr. Anshu Gupta, a powerful orator and the recipient of the Social Entrepreneur of the Year award by Schwab foundation, sister concern of the world economic forum. He jolted the conscience of the audience with his presentation, which also included "Sochtahoon", a collection of pictures he has taken from across India coupled with powerful slogans. His speech was an eye opener, where he spoke about the sad state of the poor of our nation, targeting apathy and mindsets of people. He said there's no point of criticizing if one can't be a part of the process and also that it's important to push and not accept the status quo. He also recalled his personal experiences in Uttarkashi and Old Delhi, both of which had impacted his life.

The third and final speaker of the day, Mr. Subasish Mishra, spoke on the business side of entrepreneurship. He pointed out that earlier, people wouldn't have the courage to easily leave the job route and start their own venture, but nowadays the youth are a lot more enthusiastic about start ups. He spoke about his passion for entrepreneurship and his involvement in helping upcoming entrepreneurs with their start ups.
