Mr. Puneet drew attention on ‘building networks’ that he said will always play an important role in the journey to be an entrepreneur. Mr. Ankit shared his views on joining family business with a perspective of expansion and value creation while assigning due importance to professional principles, he thus inspired students to maintain a balance between personal space and family life.
