Why was I making on and off appearance these past few days? Let me share a few exiting things with you which is happening in my life and kept me absolutely busy!
It has been an overwhelming learning experience! Imagine Luis Kahn architecture, best business school in India, power of ideas and winning and being with budding entrepreneurs for 10 days! Wouldn’t you feel excited?
IIMA- from inside of a dorm
My husband’s project Arthkaam got selected as one of the best 74 innovative business idea out of 16,242 ideas in Economic Times’ Power of Ideas platform (Didn’t I always believed in power of my ideas!).
So I was in CIIE@IIM Ahmedabad for the workshop. It has been an amazing experience and yes totally hectic! I had thought of capturing Ahmedabad moments but did not get any time except few hours on last day.
So Ahmedabad the way I want to capture is still a future project. Meanwhile I will be bringing few design and clean tech related ideas from #ETPOI exclusively to you in next few days. The design related activities of IIMA students is also going to be showcased and yes I met Prof Jignesh Khakhar of NID during the workshop so some brilliant designs from NID too. All these exclusively on DesignFlute in coming days!
But first here is glimpse of IIMA; the monumental architecture of Louis Kahn…
