It brings together the Academic Community, Venture Capitalists, aspiring Entrepreneurs and all those passionate about Entrepreneurship to a common platform. ENSPIRIT also aims to promote the Institute’s vision to be a center of Entrepreneurial excellence.
This year’s ESPIRIT was themed ‘Breaking Digital’ in coherence with the theme of our fest Equinox. The Agenda of this year summit was to deliberate and discuss the influence of Digital mediums on the life of a business. The summit helped in equivocating the web of digital that is famed across all the business diaspora and has become a staple for any B-School student.
Speaking during this summit, Mr. Abhinay Choudhari, Co-founder, Big basket, spoke about his entrepreneurial strides and about the ingredients it takes to start a successful venture. Mr. Ankit Ratan, Founder, Signzy, spoke about artificial intelligence and block chain technology, their growing impact in today's world and how they can lead to something as big as the industrial revolution. Mr. Dinesh Kumar Homagai, VP, Wow Momos, also gave entrepreneurial insights from his experiences, which resonated with the students. The discussion was moderated by Mr. Rajeev Roy, CEO, 36Inc who kept the session well coordinated and added few instances of humor.
The conversations re-kindled the entrepreneurial spirit among the audience who quenched their thirst by asking diverse questions which were answered in depth. The summit concluded with mementos being presented to speakers by our respected director Prof. Bharat Bhasker. All attendees were given an opportunity to interact with the guests through a small Hi-Tea cum networking session.
