Creating an entrepreneurial mindset through experiential learning; offered by DCSE

It was the right place and right time to grab the opportunity!!

I am Vijaylaxmi Patil, studying III semester of Master of Entrepreneurship. Recently, I had the pleasure of being presenting my business idea in front of the great dignitaries, Sri. S R Patil, Karnataka State IT-BT- Science  & Technology Minister, Mr. Jagadish Shettar, former Chief Minister of Karnataka, and the legendary Dr. Gururaj Deshpande, and our very own Mr. Naveen Jha, CEO of Deshpande Foundation.
(Elevator Pitch in front of the dignitaries)
  Last week, an opportunity of pitching in my idea in front of the aforesaid dignitaries came my way. We were all gathered for the opening ceremony of new building of Deshpande Center for Social Entrepreneurship and there was a lot of festive mood among the crowd. There were over 300 students along with the staff members. Everyone was eager to interact with the guests.

Out of nowhere, Mr. Jha asked me to pitch my business idea of e-Waste management. It was a pleasant shock and to be honest, I became very nervous. But the encouragement from Mr. Jha and Mr. Niranjan Demanna gave me extra courage and more than anything I was surrounded by my friends, and a very positive environment! I could explain to the packed audience and dignitaries about the passion that drove me to start my venture e-Vision, an e-waste management company. You can read more about my e-vision here.

There... I did it!!! What an amazing experience it was!!!  Receiving compliments from the honorable IT minister; former Chief Minister of Karnataka and my friends is truly a wonderful feeling!!! I am now more than confident, focused to work on the idea with renewed rigor!!!
