Â On 1st September 2012, at the GTU conference room, about 35 young persons came together to listen to Shri Arvind Patel of Sahajanand Laser Technology and a leader of The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE).
In the audience were 4 young faculty members, many young engineers, who had graduated in May 2012 and some young students. They all were budding entrepreneurs.
The purpose of the meeting was to learn about entrepreneurship through a successful entrepreneur. Shri Arvind Patel inter-acted with the young persons very creatively and the meeting continued from 5 PM to 7.30 PM.
But these days whenever our faculty members, students or graduates come together with me, it is natural that we start discussing what we should do to improve GTU further. I gave the following mantra:
â€œWe can succeed in making Gujarat Technological University a great University when every member of the GTU family starts taking pride in GTU and starts working hard to see that his/ her contribution does not fall short.â€
