Elaborating about the conclave, Prof. Kanagaraj, XLRI said,� Entrepreneurship is a crucial factor in the development of any economy. Entrepreneurs are the alchemists who know the right combination of all those elements required to convert problems into opportunities. Their entrepreneurial mindset can give favorable results even in the midst of an economic downturn and promote and nurture entrepreneurship among Millennials. We at XLRI are organizing the first edition of Start-up Conclave 2020 as an initiative to contribute towards encouraging and developing an entrepreneurial mindset and to handhold budding entrepreneurs�.
