Think beyond self-imposed constraints and conventional limits, Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM) CEO Saji Gopinath told budding talents at the Young Entrepreneurs’ Conclave (YEC) here on Saturday.

Speaking after inaugurating the conclave organised by the Kerala Agricultural University (KAU) Directorate of Extension in collaboration with the university students’ union at Kelappaji College of Agricultural Engineering and Technology (KCAET), Tavanur, Mr. Gopinath said exponential solutions for a better tomorrow was the need of the hour.

‘For survival, growth’

“Dispelling misconceptions of entrepreneurship is a must. Huge resources are not required to make an impact. Idea, passion and energy are the ingredients required.

“The atmosphere has changed for the good. Start-up means entrepreneurship for survival, growth and excellence,” he said.

KAU Vice Chancellor R. Chandrababu, in his presidential address, said the university was trying to sensitise students about opportunities in the start-up world.

“Current students have a lot of opportunities to learn new things. Upscaling skills and being industry-ready is the challenge they have to take up. Commercially viable ideas will be promoted and rewarded. Entrepreneurship in primary sector is not common but they definitely have a space in developing economy,” he said.
