Srinivassa Sinai Dempo College of Commerce and Economics BBA Department celebrated World Entrepreneurship Day by organising an event ‘Walk the Talk’ by Sairaj Dhond.
The event was graced by Chief Guest Sairaj Dhond, Founder-CEO of Wakao Foods, Luxo Heritage Homes and a notable entrepreneur who made a winning pitch on Shark Tank India Season 1. The other distinguished dignitaries were CA Gaurav Kenkre, Professor Dr. Manoj Kamat, Principal and Dr. Sonya Angle, BBA Program Coordinator.
Dr. Kamat welcomed the dignitaries and enlightened the students on the importance of entrepreneurship and aiming for careers as entrepreneurs.
Dhond addressed the students and imparted key entrepreneurial insights, emphasising creativity, seizing opportunities and motivated students to make the best out of adversity.
Dhond said that starting a business doesn’t necessarily require a lot of money or resources, but rather a great, scalable, and practical idea. He also stressed the need for perseverance, taking feedback constructively, and not taking oneself too seriously. He believes that now is the best time to launch a startup in India because there is ample liquidity and people are willing to invest in innovative ideas with potential for growth. It was an engaging experience for students to listen to the young entrepreneur as he shared his life story and business experiences.
The event concluded with a vote of thanks from Raheel Chauhan, Dempo BBA Forum Horizon Vice President.
