Sharing their vision for the Chair, Anuradha and Shri B V Jagadeesh said: “As much as it is important to help children get basic education and professional degrees, it is equally significant to support students and young minds who can create jobs, because entrepreneurship is the best way to address a lot of challenges and bring people out of the poverty cycle. We chose IITGN for this cause since this Institute nurtures inclusive values and culture and extends it beyond its own campus and students. We are excited to partner with the incredible leadership team at IITGN to drive this crucial effort of cultivating the entrepreneurial ecosystem and creating more leaders in the country. Even if we are able to create a few entrepreneurs out of this movement, it will make a great impact.”

Expressing his delight at the establishment of these two remarkable chairs at the Institute, IITGN, director, Rajat Moona, said: “This is the most opportune time to witness and be part of the technological transformation happening in the country, and at the same time, contribute in building a fair and sustainable future of our planet. IITs have been bringing many new ideas, technology, insights into the life of people. We are glad and thankful to Smt Anuradha, Shri B V Jagadeesh, Dr Darshan Pandya, and Dr Chandra Shivpuri for choosing and trusting IITGN to steer a journey towards creating a long-lasting impact in the fields of entrepreneurship, innovation, and population dynamics. I am sure it will benefit many students, faculty, and aspiring talent of our country and will create a much larger impact through the resources and opportunities they will provide. We will be able to see the fruits of these well-thought endeavours in the time to come.”
