Mangaluru, Feb 27: “Women entrepreneurial success rate is very high when compared with men. This is due to their hard work, passion, perseverance and never give up attitude,” said Ullas Kamath, joint managing director of Jyothy Laboratories Limited, Mumbai.
He was addressing the MBA students and faculty members of Manel Srinivas Nayak Institute of Management (MSNIM) as a part of the MSNM Guest Talk Series. The programme was held on Saturday, February 27 at MSNIM campus at Bondel, Mangaluru.
Speaking on the topic ‘Entrepreneurship and the Challenges’, Ullas Kamath said passion, perfection and patience are the key to entrepreneurial success. “The whole world cannot be of job seekers, there should also be job creators.
