As part of the vision to inspire young minds with success stories and strategies from the industry LIBA hosted first-generation Entrepreneur, Mr. Vijay Kapoor, Founder and MD of Derby Clothing and Derby Jeans Community at the Beyond Management Initiative (BMI) on 7th August, 2019.
Mr. Vijay began his session with the words “Loving you so much”. He continued his speech by telling that love is the only thing which makes life worth living and that love is nothing but the sense of oneness we have with fellow humans and nature. He stressed the importance of having self-awakening and said that “YOU GOT TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF (YGB)” to unleash your full potential. Mr. Vijay, an alumnus of Loyola College narrated his life events of graduating and getting his first job as a salesman. He pointed out two important learnings from his story. It was only after getting into his job he understood his strength. Second takeaway was that we should always dress well until we become legends to set our own style. Do it because we are our own brand ambassadors.
An entrepreneur lifts himself and lifts hundreds of aspiring minds along with him. Entrepreneurship is the greatest form of social service, is his belief. He also stated that an idea gives only 10% success, rest 90% is in the execution of ideas. Ordinary process will have ordinary results; hence we should have passion for excellence. The Beyond Management Initiative (BMI) session offers a unique opportunity for students to listen and interact with experts from various fields and thereby benefit from their significant experiences and valuable insights. The BMI lecture series are held every Wednesday in LIBA.
