The discussion was skilfully moderated by one of the EMBA students, Mr Pratik Nalawade (GEMBA B14). The panelists' genuine and transparent accounts of their entrepreneurial journeys resonated profoundly with the audience. They shared invaluable insights into the challenges they faced, the lessons they learned, and the strategies they employed to overcome obstacles along the way.

One of the key takeaways from the event was the importance of embracing ambiguity in the entrepreneurial journey. Apart from the enriching panel discussion, the event also provided an excellent networking platform for the students. Connecting with the esteemed alumni not only broadened their horizons but also gave them an opportunity to seek guidance and mentorship in their own entrepreneurial pursuits.

A student noted ‘The open and candid discussion by the alumni was helpful in understanding that It's okay if the journey is not clear. Start where you can. Work constantly on customer feedback and be agile’.

Another student expressed his takeaway, saying, he learnt, ‘It’s never too late to start in life. Cultivating the right mindset is important; all three speakers shared practical insights, and their journey was inspiring.’

The event exemplified the universality of entrepreneurship as a timeless pursuit that knows no boundaries and continues to shape the world with innovation, creativity, and the power of human ambition.
