Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2016 at IIT, Kharagpur

I recently got the honour of speaking at one of the most premier tech institutes of India: The Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, which has given the world some of the brightest engineers.

I was there on January 10, 2016 and spoke on ‘E-Commerce vs. Traditional Retail in India’.

It was amazing to see the level of knowledge the students possessed about the Indian retail industry and the scope and future of e-commerce as well as mobile technology in retail. In the next few years we are going to see several new e-commerce start-ups propping up across India.

What I felt surprisingly was the latent entrepreneurial spirit in these youngsters. They were full of enthusiasm, and the questions and possibilities that were discussed from the perspective of e-commerce in retail could well be made into inspirational business case studies!
