“I am sure that the ecosystem at IIM Nagpur will promote among the students the mindset of becoming job-creators, instead of being job-seekers,” he said.
Appreciating the IIM for establishing seven centres of excellence, Kovind said the IIM though the Centre for Entrepreneurs has established IIM Nagpur Foundation for Entrepreneurs Development (InFED) and it was a matter of immense pride that InFED has successfully enabled women entrepreneurs to graduate from women startup programme and six of them have even launched their enterprises. “Our daughters whenever provided an adequate platform will always shine to the optimum and it will be a true tribute to the land of Savitribai Fuley and Anandibai Joshi,” Kovind added.
