AI-IOTThe 2nd edition of the Economic Times Promising Entrepreneurs of India 2019, held at Hotel Sahara Star Mumbai, felicitated leading entrepreneurs who have made a mark in their fields. Over 70 renowned personalities, entrepreneurs and educationists were felicitated at the landmark event.



The felicitation ceremony began with a powerful and captivating keynote address by Ashish Vidyarthi, National Award-Winning Actor and Founder, Ashish Vidyarthi & Associates who said, “When we communicate powerfully with our work, that’s when more people are attracted, ignited and excited to join us in our journey. The very fact that you have become an Entrepreneur is that you have found that one reason for your ‘can’ and that one reason is your differentiator”. 



Arjun Rampal opined on the success formula for entrepreneurs, saying, “I think the most important thing is to be focused on your goal and were you want to go. As long as you are not a hamster on a wheel just running in the same place and you are getting somewhere, I think that is what is really important.”



Masaba Gupta,Fashion Designer, House of Masaba enthused that, “When you’re an entrepreneur, you have to really kind of think two steps ahead, always be ahead of the curve, always be on the pulse of the youth. Because I design for the youth, those are my key markets. I believe for every entrepreneur you should always do something that is out of your comfort zone. You might find out that you are better at something else then what you are doing.”



Saurabh Kochar, Founder of Food Panda, stated “It is very important to be audacious with your dream. If they are not laughing at you, it is not audacious enough and honestly, I would say think about it whether it’s worth it.”



Subhash Ghai, Founder Chairman, Whistling Woods International praised this initiative, saying, “I am watching these awards for so many years because establishments like the Economic Times do care for education for the younger generation. Myself being an educationist I understand that it is a lot of compassion in you and nobleness in you to see to it that you spend money and time. It’s not a profit oriented business, it’s an initiative that you want to create something as you want to contribute in your society and next generation, to rebuild India, to bring a new India to the fore.”



Gul Panag, critically acclaimed actor, former Miss India and Pilot is of the opinion that, “It’s always important to continue learning. It gives you perspective that you don’t know enough because the moment you stop learning, you figure that there isn’t anything more  to acquire in terms of  knowledge. And if you continue to learn new things, new skills, new vocations, trying out new things, it keeps your mind open to all that’s possible.”
