Footprints, the flagship annual alumni meet of IIM Indore, commenced with great vigour and enthusiasm on November 15, 2019. A ‘Cultural Night’ was scheduled on November 16; the second day of the three-day event. The event started with melodious performances by Harmon-I, the Music Society of IIM Indore. They enthralled the audience with their soulful singing. This was followed by an energetic performance by Vibes- the Dance Society, followed by some spontaneous yet beautiful performances by some of the alums. They kept the crowd entertained.
The third day of Footprints took off to a sweet start with a cake cutting ceremony organized for the special occasion. The alumni belonging to the senior-most batch did the honours of cutting the cake and the room was buzzing with energy as old friends met once again. In the faculty-alumni brunch that followed, conversations hit off without a beat lost. Stories and anecdotes were shared, brains stormed and advice sought.
The Annual Entrepreneurship Meet (AEM) was also scheduled on Day 3. The third edition of the meet, organised by E-cell in association with Alumni Committee, aimed at fostering a culture of entrepreneurship in the Institute. An informal interactive session was also held, with Abhijeet Singh, PGP of 2014 batch, CEO and partner in Nineten- a business wing of Endohaveli as the speaker. Endohaveli is a Facebook group of 47000 dynamic dentists. Also, Abhijeet is International Certified Business and Executive Coach (Affiliated to Certified Coaches Alliance, Canada). He was joined by Dr. Rahul Bisht, a young creative mind from KGMC, dentist by profession and Founder of Endohaveli. They shared what inspired them and how they tackle the daily ordeals that one comes across as a ‘founder’. Added to that, discussion also revolved around how various industry dynamics play out for the start-ups.
The three day alumni meet came to an end with lots of memories and nostalgia among the alumni.
