Announcing “Elevate!”

On the back of a successful series of Entrepreneurship Workshops last year, we are very pleased to announce “Elevate!” – a series of one-day Workshops on Entrepreneurship in collaboration with “Entre”, the Entrepreneurship Club of IIM Ahmedabad.

Elevate! is the series of Workshops that will precede Masterplan, IIM-A’s flagship Business Plan Event to be held at Confluence 13.

Masterplan seeks to identify budding entrepreneurs from around the country who are breaking the mould and to contribute to India’s growth story. Masterplan is conducted in three phases leading to a select set of teams that are invited to attend Confluence, where they get an opportunity to present their ideas to a panel of judges comprising industry stalwarts, entrepreneurs, and Venture Capital firms.

Since 2012, the Confluence team has been associating itself with several pre-Masterplan workshops in the various cities of India to help the participants approach their idea in a systematic way and enable us to reach a large & relevant audience for Masterplan!

This year, Udbhav Associates and the Masterplan Team are collaborating to conduct this series of workshops across some of India’s premier engineering & MBA colleges.

The workshops would focus on the challenges of a start-up and practical tips, advice and skills that would help entrepreneurs face these challenges. The day will span several highly-engaging, interactive sessions followed by 1-on-1 mentoring for pre-selected wild-card entries. 

Participants will be encouraged to candidly share their entrepreneurial ideas and thoughts during the sessions. Along with this, the speaker would also be sharing stories from his entrepreneurial journey. He would also be drawing upon the lives of the leading entrepreneurs leaders, their ideas, how they scaled them up and what we can learn from them.

More details here..and don’t forget to pre-register (venues and dates are being finalised and will be released shortly)

Qualitative comments from the Workshop included below..

Some comments from participants (Full-time MBA and Executive MBA students at Imperial College Business School in London):

  • Just needed to say a whole hearted thanks for the wonderful experience yesterday. I have attended quite a few workshops in my professional and academic career but few will ever come close to the interactive and insightful experience of yesterday. It was great to have you at Imperial …Thanks again Sir, it was an honour..
  • We really enjoyed it..It was one of the best! 
  • The fact that everyone came back to join the post-lunch session is a good metric! (of the quality of the workshop)
  • You opened my eyes to risk..and to entrepreneurship..
  • Manu thanks for the very interesting workshop. I really enjoyed it (sic). 
  • Really enjoyed the workshop, Shantanu is clearly extremely knowledge around both social enterprise and entrepreneurship. An extremely engaging and interesting workshop, one of the best sessions I’ve attended on the MBA so far. Many Thanks.
  • As an entrepreneur, it added another dimension to my thought that I could make money as well as do good (eg – the Vindhya story). Therefore, would recommend it to other entrepreneurial colleagues.
  • I would have liked it to be more than just a day with more of the same covered. The day workshop was very engaging.


I am expecting additional feedback within a few days. Stay tuned! Also see Testimonials and feedback from previous workshops!
