In a recent interactive session with MBA and Engineering students at a globally reputed university, we focused on aspects of students’ lives that make it the most promising yet challenging phase, their career options and paths, and tips to decide whether “An Entrepreneur versus An Intrapreneur” path is better suited for them. A brief snapshot of what took place and what resonated strongly with the student community.
The key speakers were Mr Abhijit Onkar, co-founder of GraduFund, and ex-Strategy Consultant at Deloitte; and Mr Ram Ravichandran, Director of Analytics at Visa Inc., in his personal capacity. While we expected a few students for a focused group discussion about GraduFund, we were both overwhelmed and humbled by the response, as about 3X more students turned up for the session voluntarily, at the end of a tiring day for most. At the same time, the scheduled one-hour interaction went on to two-and-a-half, and the depth of interaction was amazing!
Two main patterns emerged during the talks – Finance and Career Connect. Keep on the lookout for the details on this engaging session – We will cover the details of the rich interaction soon in our GraduFund blog! As our reputed speaker, Ram, echoed his thoughts after the session – “These guys are amazing, and with the right opportunities, they will create amazing things…Learnt 10X more from them, than what we expected” .
Couple of feedback points cited verbatim, from the student community that loves what GraduFund does -“Students absolutely loved it.” “It is a great beginning. I wish to see its success and effectiveness personally.”
This is what keeps us going!
