What is Prarambh?

Prarambh is the flagship event of Saksham, the Entrepreneurship Cell of IIM Udaipur. The event brought together entrepreneurs under the banner of Prarambh and helped them refine their ideas and Minimum Viable Products (MVPs) by providing five-week mentorship by industry stalwarts.

Saksham, the Entrepreneurship cell of IIM Udaipur, hosted an entrepreneurship-summit, or E-Summit for the second time in IIMU. The theme of the summit was “Tales of Transition.” To highlight the need to master the changing environment, the Keynote speakers of E-Summit 2021 put forth their experiences on making transitions as accelerators instead of barriers. The E-Summit witnessed three esteemed speakers, namely Mythily Ramesh (Co-Founder & CEO NextWealth), Prachi Mohapatra (Marketing Head, Dr Reddy’s Laboratories), Murali Sivaraman (Chairman, Huhtamaki India), who engaged students in a 1 hour 45 minutes session aligned with the summit’s defined theme.
