Former President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam will launch PanIIT’s “Entrepreneurship Movement”. The mission will be launched by simultaneously mentoring 1000 entrepreneurs in 16 different cities of India on one day, Jan 26th, 2008. This program will be conducted in association with TiE (The Indus Enterpreneur) and NEN (National Entrepreneurship Network).
The PanIIT organization was formed as a federal body, covering alumni of all 7 IIT’s, to evolve a brand that would provide strong fraternity among IIT alumni.
Dr. Kalam, while inaugurating the Global event on Dec 23rd 2006, advised IITians to ignite the torch of Entrepreneurship in Indian. He urged IITians to share their experiences and mentor young entrepreneurs so that instead of being “job seekers”, more “job creators” are formed. We are converting his vision into action.
The 16 cities that will be covered are Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Bhubaneshwar, Chandigarh, Chennai, Cochin, Delhi, Guwahati , Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Kanpur, Koltata, Mumbai, Patna and Pune.
We are tying up with various media partners – TV channels, Newspapers, Magazines, Websites etc. We expect that the event will have extensive media coverage because of the unique approach.
