“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” This quote by Gandhi beautifully captures the essence of what drives entrepreneurs to be changemakers.
Budding entrepreneurs have ideas but often face difficulty in executing them. Nurture Talent Academy in association with Confluence – International Business Summit of IIM Ahmedabad, is conducting a series of Entrepreneurship & Business Plan workshops across the country to help them iron out these issues.
A day –long training session will be held in more than 50 colleges during September and October 2014. A lot of ground will be covered during the day, from learning how to generate ideas, formulating the plan, starting it, getting the finances in place and eventually launching the product.
Participants at these workshops can also take part in Masterplan, and get a chance to win cash prizes worth Rs.5 lakhs and present to investors and judges at finale in IIM Ahmedabad from 28th November, if selected.
Amit Grover, Founder of Nurture Talent Academy, who is himself an IIT – IIM alumnus said, “During the interactive hands on practical workshops conducted by IIT-IIM alumni, students not only learn to start a venture but also become entrepreneurial to take up jobs in leading startups. The team activities and the chance of interacting with successful entrepreneurs will lend shape to their ideas.”
With a grand vision to nurture the entrepreneurship eco-system in India, Confluence aims at attracting young minds with a zest to make a difference.
