Social Entrepreneurship Conference at NIT Durgapur

Dear Friends,

On 10th February I got an opportunity to be a speaker at the Social Entrepreneurship Conference organized at NIT Durgapur by NSEF (National Social Entrepreneurship Forum). In the latter part of the conference I got an opportunity to be the judge for a business plan competition on Social Entrepreneurship.

I would like to thank Mr. Gaurav Makkar, Director of NSEF for granting me the opportunity of interacting with young and budding social entrepreneurs. In a larger sense, I really appreciate the ways in which NSEF is creating an ecology in colleges and institutions for the propagation of social entrepreneurship and seeding social entrepreneurs.

I would also like to thank all the students of NIT Durgapur, particularly Anurag Saha for the excellent arrangements they made for the speakers.
