Making A Difference

We feel interaction with the start-ups is the best way to learn real life entrepreneurial problems. Realizing this fact, entrepreneurship cell has come up with the initiative of Making A Difference (MAD).Mad is an initiative aimed at promoting the spirit of entrepreneurship in Trichy by bringing together people with an entrepreneurial blend of mind. The objective is to help each other in generating ideas, conceptualizing existing ideas of members and initiating discussions on various practical aspects related to entrepreneurship. The idea is to try and build an ecosystem for nurturing both social and for profit entrepreneurship. We had 3 eminent speakers, from different diverse backgrounds delivering lectures on how they were able to become an entrepreneur, the difficulties encountered, and finally on how they have made a difference to the society.
 

Mr.SarathbabuElumalai, an alumnus of IIM A, who is also the founder and CEO of Food king delivered valuable insights on hard it was for him to turn a blind eye towards the rosy packages offered in the campus and pursue the path not trodden. His speech was enlightening and made us understand how his MBA had helped him take some wise decisions and helped him in the long run

 

Mr. A. Muruganantham, a social entrepreneur from rural Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu who is the recipient of awards such as as best innovation for the betterment of society from Indian Institute of Technology Chennai and an Indian Presidential award delivered a lecture on how he was able to innovate and become an entrepreneur without any formal education at all. It was highly interesting to learn that a person from a rural background was able to invent a machine and now competes directly with huge multinationals such as P&G and Johnson and Johnson. His journey was not a path with roses, but one with twists and turns. It was highly inspirational to listen to his tales of how the spirit and the passion is what one needs to become an entrepreneur.

 

Mr. C.K. Kumaravel ,the Co-Founder and CEO of Naturals Beauty Salon India Pvt. Ltd delivered a highly insightful lecture about how he was able to come up with the idea of a beauty salon and was successful in making it a huge success. It came as a big surprise for all of us when he mentioned that he had absolutely no knowledge in the area of beauty salon. But he was keen on learning the nuances of how to run a successful business. So he had to start from scratch and successfully learnt how to be a successful businessman and Naturals Beauty Salon has grown today to be acknowledged as the industry leader and trend setter for its innovations and uniquely successful operation and service formats. His speech was insightful and interesting as he had a ting of humour to his speech.
