VIA (Vidarbha Industries Association) and Lemon Ideas launched their new start-up Gurukul at VIA Auditorium, Nagpur on 16th November. During their ‘Entrepreneurship Forum,’ various entrepreneurs spoke on the topic – Local specialities and Global Business.

Akash Agrawal, Chairman at Entrepreneurship Forum, told Nation Next, “We want to infuse a start-up culture in Nagpur so we came up with a unique start-up called Gurukul in collaboration with Lemon Ideas. Nagpur’s youngsters aren’t motivated to stay back for employment. Also, aspiring businessmen feel that our city doesn’t provide enough facilities for them. Usually, people are sceptical about starting their own business because of the risk factor involved in it. But, Gurukul is a platform where aspiring businessmen come together and share their business ideas. We encourage and help them in deciding their future business projects.”

Paul D’souza, a guest speaker from Hongkong, too shared his views on entrepreneurship for the young generation during the event.
