EPGP students shine in biz plan contest
A team of three students from the one-year MBA at IIMB, comprising Anurag Pingle, Mudit Vaish and Abhinav Tiwari, has won the second runners-up position, in a B-plan competition called ‘White Knight’, at the Backwaters ’22 Business Summit hosted by IIM Kozhikode, recently. There were close to 800 entries for this contest. Team ProdMen from IIM Bangalore’s Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management (EPGP) made the second runners-up position while team VAAK from VGSoM (IIT-K) finished first, followed by Dark Knights from IIM Kozhikode.
White Knight is a contest that aims to encourage entrepreneurship by providing a platform for new ideas, strategy and implementation. In round one of the competition, the participating teams had to define a business idea involving a service or a product related to random clips in the video shared with them. Ten teams were shortlisted for round two, where they had to present their idea with a complete business plan.
