Bengaluru: Adrian D'Souza takes charge as president of Kanara Entreprenuers

Media Release

Bengaluru, Jun 26: Adrian Dsouza, a well known industrialist, took charge as president of Kanara Entreprenuers (KE), a highly representative group of the Kanara community, at a grand event of its memebers' meet at Grand Magrath Hotel here recently.

The glorious occasion on June 16, was the demiting of office by the previous board of directors, Anil Peter Rego as president, Claudius Pereira as director of marketing, and Naveen D'Souza as director of membership. The tremendous efforts made by these sterling individuals by almost doubling the membership of KE during their two year tenure was highly appreciated by KE global chairman, Ivan Fernandes. The new board of directors consisting of Adrian D'Souza as president, Ivy Saldanha as director, mentoring, Naveen Rodrigues, as director, events, Ajay Fernandes, as director, marketing and Dr Joseph Rasquinha, as director, membership were sworn in by Ivan Fernandes who felt that the great work done by the previous board would continue under the leadership of Adrian D'Souza and KE would grow to greater heights.


The highlight of the evening however, was the speech on networking given by Ivan Fernandes who came all the way from Dubai to spend time to provide KE members with his powerful insights on how the KE platform could be used to network and increase business and gain knowledge from the tremendous experience held by different members in different areas of expertise. The talk was illuminating, as one of the most difficult aspects of entrepreneurship faced by most is re-inventing the wheel. But drawing on the KE networking platform, this is avoided, and everyone gains tremendously.

The next highlight was the speech by the MLA of Mangaluru South, JR Lobo. In a poignant, but powerful message, he bemoaned the fact that entrepreneurship was grossly lacking among the Kanara Catholics and gave the example of his constituents. In the last 12 months, he said, he had inaugurated almost every week new ventures by either Muslim or Hindu constituents. But the catholics? Maybe 2-3 the entire year. The efforts of Kanara Entrepreneurs, he felt was a critical one, and its mission to develop and network new entrepreneurs is vital to take the community forward.

Kanara Entrepreneurs had a momentous meeting with a plethora of events that made the evening both solemn and exciting for all members. The luxurious venue of the event was attended by vast majority of the 200 strong entrepreneurs group. KE has members across 73 different industries.
