Pillai Centre of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (PCIE) conducted a Seminar on “Family Managed Business and Entrepreneurship” on 19th August, 2016, Friday. The program was conducted in the Auditorium, 7th Floor. Former B.M.S. student Mr. Jeffin John who is now a successful entrepreneur, Miss. Sabina and Prof. Samish Dalal were the main speakers at
the event. The seminar was very motivating and helped many students get a clear view about what to do differently in their lives.
It made the students realize the importance of family run business and the new and innovative things one can do to expand the family business. Miss. Sabina shared her personal story and experience with the students and stressed that women can always have a better shot at doing business than men. She recalled the problems she had to face, being the only woman in the firm while entering into the family business of mattresses. Prof. Samish Dalal made the students realize that the world, especially India is full of opportunities and one only has to find ‘gaps’ in the market to run a successful business. The program was clearly a huge motivation and helped the students open up their minds to various ideas in taking business to heights.
