Engineering the entrepreneurial edifice of the budding graduates is the trump card for honing the innovation, production and sustainable development arena of our nation on a scalable model. To facilitate such an entrepreneurial urge among technocrats that it gets embedded in their very stream of thought to mould themselves into creative and successful entrepreneurs, Agni College of Technology (ACT), Thalambur, Chennai, hosted the historic 300 START UPS by women CEOs, on 4th February 2019 at the College premises in the presence of the Chief Guests, Prof.M.K.Surappa, Vice-Chancellor of Anna University and Mr.Vinoth Mannatil, Senior Vice President, Wells Fargo, Chennai division. This mega event will supplement the Central and State Governments’ initiatives on “Make in India” and supporting “Startup” policies to guarantee sustainable youth-employment across the production and service sectors in India.
This event infused a strategic synergy between the students’ creative caliber and their confident entrepreneurial spirit, resulting in mind-blowing ideas that are yet to get consolidated as catapulted corporate deals and path-breaking think-tanks in near future.
Addressing the gathering, Prof.M.K.Surappa, Vice-Chancellor of Anna University, stressed on the importance of innovation in science and technology, especially in such areas that would benefit the common masses to a great extent. He felicitated all the 300 women CEOs and advised them to raise above all the temporary impediments such as poverty, lack of strategic guidance, infrastructure and other hurdles that come their way, only to succeed in their larger vision and mission of innovating technologies that would benefit a larger community for good.
