IIM Bangalore thanks its donors Narendra Ostawal, alumnus of the PGP batch of 2000-2002 and Rohit Rao, Joint President, Group Chief CSR Officer, Kotak Mahindra Bank Limited, for having collaborated as partners and energizers of the institute.
Stating that it was a privilege for him to have spent two years at IIM Bangalore, Narendra adds, “Those years have had a key role to play in my professional and personal life. My contribution is both a token of my gratitude and my effort to support the institute in its growth, which I hope will help several more students realize their dreams.”
Kotak Mahindra Bank Limited, under its CSR Project, has partnered IIM Bangalore to further develop the Women’s Start-up Programme (WSP). Says Rohit, “With WSP, Kotak Mahindra Bank is aiming to build the next layer of fruitful business ventures run by women leaders. WSP4, the fourth edition of this programme by NSRCEL, will incubate early-stage companies founded by women entrepreneurs that demonstrate the potential to innovate, implement and create social or financial impact, especially in Tier II and Tier III cities. We believe the WSP will give flight to their imagination and dreams and create a vibrant start-up ecosystem for women empowerment.”
