"I am thankful for all the support provided by IIM Nagpur for helping me work on my venture idea. Before joining IIMN, I was not confident on how this startup journey would be for me. Leaving my job was not an easy decision for me. However, the kind of mentoring and support I have got in this incubation is worth mentioning to all of you. Thanks once again. This is an amazing programme. I think I can be your brand ambassador for this program. I look forward to the same support in the coming months as well.”

The mentors have been a good sounding board to give us confidence in what we are doing and asking us the right questions to give us an angle, which never occurred to us. This has been especially important.”
