" It has been a pleasure for us to serve various stakeholders and co-create a model for bringing transparency in data intelligence during the Coronavirus wave by way of a Drone and Drone Data Call Center Model in New Town Kolkata. This has only been possible with the continuous support of various well wishers, industry partners, and various other personnel. The values inculcated at SP Jain Institute of Management & Research helped us to approach the market space, envision how we can create value while navigating the ever transformative environment.
It was at SPJIMR FMB, that I learnt that any business is only as strong as it’s foundation as well as how family businesses can lead the way by combining their values with agility on careful study and analysis of the market space. The co-curricular activities, various fireside chats, external guest speakers helped instill confidence and provided us with critical guidance for the future. "
Director-Navitas Green Solutions Pvt. Ltd. & Renon India Pvt. Ltd.
" It was a moment of great pride for my family and me when in February 2013, I co-founded Navitas Green Solutions Pvt. Ltd (Navitas Solar) with two of my like-minded friends. In 2012, the idea to establish a business in renewable energy germinated in my mind after successfully completing Family Managed Business program at S.P. Jain Institute of Management & Research, Mumbai. Though it was uncharted territory for me, I was inspired by the movement to fight against climate change and decided to explore it. With a vision to begin manufacturing of solar PV modules and become a full spectrum solar energy company in the long term, I began my dream run.
It was at SPJIMR FMB, that I discovered my entrepreneurial streak and realized the immense potential offered by the fast-growing solar energy industry. Having established our presence in the field today, we are now ready to scale greater heights and look forward to becoming a leader in the overall value chain of sustainable businesses. I attribute my success to the overarching curriculum and industry exposure that I acquired at SPJIMR’s FMB. "

" Today, I am a confident businessperson who does not shy away from breaking the glass ceiling with her achievements every day. The credit of my success goes to the well-articulated Family Managed Business program at S.P.

I hail from a family business background but truly acquired the acumen to drive a business at SPJIMR, Mumbai.
In the last few years, I have engaged productively in various businesses such as manufacturing, warehousing, construction, retail, events, hospitality, agriculture and FMCG in India and Nepal. I am also into organic farming and working with 5000 farmers across Nepal. I won the “Most Successful Business Women of the Year” by RSTCA Nepal in 2019 and have been sharing my success stories as a speaker at seminars and events. SPJIMR, Mumbai not only opened the door of infinite opportunities but encouraged me to harness my full potential. "
Cofounder-Tring (a brand of B.D. Inno Ventures Pvt. Ltd), Executive Director, BDI Group
" Destined to join my family business of plastics, I decided to pursue the Family Managed Business program at S.P. Jain Institute of Management & Research, Mumbai post my technical engineering education to acquire management skills for running an organization. However, after undergoing SPJIMR FMB’s dynamic and multifaceted course, the fire within me ignited to set up my own venture. Though determined to start an enterprise, I was clueless about my beginning.
During a brainstorming session with my friends, the idea of Tring was seeded. In India, celebrities are revered and idolized and Tring aspired to bring together the fans with their favourite celebrities on the same platform for a two-way engagement. It was an ambitious goal but SPJIMR FMB’s program had equipped me well to undertake this daunting task. I co-founded and launched Tring in December 2019 and the startup has garnered unprecedented success with over 2,000+ celebrities on its platform from genres such as movies, television shows, sports, influencers, youth icons, and more. We have raised funds from top entrepreneurs and startup investors in a short span of time but for me, this is just the beginning of a long inning that I am ready to play as an enterprising entrepreneur.
