This year’s theme for the seminar was ‘STARTUP INDIA: EMPOWERING ENTREPRENEURSHIP’and it kick-started with the auspicious tradition of lighting of the lamp by the panel of eminent speakers and Dr. Shashi Tyagi (Principal, Gargi College).


The formal session began with the release of the by-annual commerce publication- ‘Comascent’, Followed by a welcome speech by Dr. Tyagi and the keynote address by the Chief Guest, Mr. Manish Sisodia, Hon’ble Deputy Chief Minister, Delhi. Speaking his mind on the topic, he made us realize that an individual cannot be turned into an entrepreneur while making him work in an organization and that changing the way our classrooms function is the need of the hour. The next speaker for the day was Professor Kavita Sharma, Faculty, Deptt. Of Commerce, DU. She proved the point that startups in India will only be reduced to myths if the desire will only be expressed in words and not in legislation.Mr. Atul Kotra, Chairman, Governing Body, Gargi College and Mr. Saurabh Bharadwaj, MLA, Delhi, constituted the rest of the panel and supported the idea of start-ups.
