Media Release

Udupi, Sep 23: T A Pai Management Institute (TAPMI), one of the leading B-Schools in India organized ‘Face to Face’ an Entrepreneurship Development lecture by Rashmi Bansal, the author of the much talked about book ‘Stay Hungry Stay Foolish’, an entrepreneur and youth expert in management at the TAPMI campus, recently.

The lecture was organized by Organization for Managerial, Entrepreneurial Guidance and Assistance (OMEGA) Committee.

Addressing the students, Rashmi said,”Entrepreneurship is all about actually doing. It’s about not taking placements but starting something on your own. We should all try to create something new and make a difference.

She said ”OMEGA invites successful entrepreneurs and business leaders to TAPMI Campus to share their knowledge, experiences and the challenges they faced in setting up their businesses with the students. “The young management students get to know from these entrepreneurs about the intricacies of setting up a business and hurdles encountered.

“I visited Robosoft, a company in the neighborhood that employs more than 300 people. It was started by Rohit Bhat, a non-engineer. It takes nothing to get inspired and learn from people in and around you. To have a start up is like a journey, it never ends. Love something, do it passionately, you also grow with it,” Bansal said. Bansal made a special mention of women and how important it is for them to think of their career. They must leave an impact on the society and industry, she added.

Ms Rashmi Bansal also unveiled DEFI’10, the OMEGA’s flagship event which is a platform for the students put on their entrepreneurial hats and have a firsthand experience in running businesses for a couple of days. The event is in line with OMEGA’s mission of awakening Entrepreneurship spirit among TAPMI students.

The DEFI game requires a team of six to come up with a business plan which they have to implement within the confines of Manipal for two days. Profits, Idea and Transparency are the criteria used for selecting the ultimate winner. The teams should first undergo initial screening process by faculty members and prove their mettle before they compete head-on with one another. The event is one of the most anticipated events at TAPMI every year.

Prof Vasudev Rao, dean at TAPMI said that the event is aimed at exposing the students to the ground realities of setting up a business and to make them realize that failures are the only stepping stones to ultimate success.
