As part of the partnership, Venture Intelligence and IIT Madras propose to invite, on a regular basis, successful entrepreneurs from across the country to deliver interactive lectures at the IIT campus. Mr. R Sarabeswar, Chairman & CEO of leading construction services firm, Consolidated Construction Consortium Ltd., will deliver the first such lecture at the Department of Management Studies, IIT Madras on Friday, April 15, 2011 (7.30 pm to 9.00 pm).
“The main objective of Entrevista is to create a single point archive for the best entrepreneurial thought leadership content for the benefit of budding entrepreneurs in India,” said Arun Natarajan, CEO of Venture Intelligence. "At IIT-Madras, we have been observing and encouraging the rising interest in entrepreneurship among our students and faculty in recent years. We are therefore happy to associate with the Entrevista initiative which aims to disseminate a realistic view of entrepreneurship in the Indian context and examine various business models in-depth," remarked Professor Job Kurian, Dean of the Centre for Industrial Consultancy and Sponsored Research (IC&SR) of IIT Madras.
