The students are clearly excited about the conference as Sushant pointed out. “I can’t believe we have been given this opportunity to travel to Singapore and listen to some of the biggest names in industry. It will be a huge learning experience for us.” The conference will not only showcase India’s entrepreneurial strength but academic excellence as well. ‘Tomorrow’s India’ will also include a visit to Singapore’s special platform for start-ups and young entrepreneurs – Action Community by Entrepreneurship.

Students from JKBS will also have plenty of opportunities to interact with the experts as there will be networking dinners and lunches to look forward to.
That is something that has Ashish, who is part of the group travelling to Singapore, visibly excited. “It’s a big deal to be sharing the same breathing space as some of these stalwarts from the industry. We will be listening to them and interacting with them; it doesn’t get more inspiring than this,” he says with a smile on his face. Students will also gain a lot from industry and academic visits in Singapore, which will give them valuable insights into the functioning of business and academia in a developed foreign country. This is the first of ‘Tomorrow’s India’ conferences, which are planned at a frequency of every six months to showcase the might of the country in today’s global context.
