Satish Kumar Ji educated students about the quality of life which is derived from the quality of income, and quality of income is best derived by entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship is a mindset that is not determined by education alone. The Vice Chancellor of Shri Vishwakarma Skill University, Prof. Raj Nehru asked the students to come out of the stereotype of the job hunt and take the lead to come up with a dedicated plan for the entrepreneurship journey. He engaged students in figuring out the constraints of this journey and convinced them about the ways to cope with the challenges in entrepreneurship. Prof. Saloni Gupta, Bharti College’s principal, urged the students to change their mindset first and the resources will follow them. Prof. Kavita Sharma who is the Chairperson of Bharti College said that she believes that there does not exist any correlation between entrepreneurship and age, education, or anything, and hence entrepreneurship opportunity exists all the time. She said that the day an individual gets the courage to step out on startups and entrepreneurship the path will be shaped to resolve the challenges.

The second session focused on “Rural Development Led Economy” and was moderated by Sri. Ravi Pokharna Ji of “Pehle India Foundation”. Sri. Kumar Shubham who is the director of “Sewa International” insisted that rural development is possible through the cooperation of rural people and rural people are very sensitive to their culture, lifestyle, and other norms. He further said that even in urban areas including slums, the sensitivity of the local folks needs to be prioritized for their participation and the project planning should incorporate it in the initial phases. Shri Anil Sharma Ji who is a chartered accountant and office bearer of SJM shared the success story of “Zoho Corporation” and its strong linkage with the rural ecosystem. This information delighted the audience and he further talked about consumerization, urbanization, digitization, renewable energy, and the opportunities that exist in the rural ecosystem. He advocated for investments instead of subsidies for the revival of the share of the rural economy in the national economy. Prof. Raj Kumar Mittal, former Vice Chancellor of Chaudhary Bansi Lal University expressed his view that environment-concerned rural agriculture practice is the way forward as the older growth model of migration from agriculture to manufacturing and later to services has failed.
