Ramesh Gopal, chief executive officer of Krishna Stone-Tech Company, has said that entrepreneurs could achieve success through dedication, determination and hard work.
Addressing the commerce students of Vijayanagar Sri Krishnadevaraya University here on Thursday, he said: “Success is never a stroke of luck. It is always the result of hard work, and hard work comes only with determination.”
He stressed the need for entrepreneurs to lay emphasis on honesty and transparency to emerge successful. “Building credibility, through honesty and transparency, will help entrepreneurs in their business,” he said.
Mr. Gopal said entrepreneurs should keep themselves updated on the latest developments in economic and industrial policies and improve their communication skills.
Manjappa Hosmane, Vice-Chancellor of the university, said students required proper guidance and hence teachers should impart suitable training, keeping in mind the demand of the trade and industrial sector. A.P. Hosamani, Dean of Commerce Department, said the university had planned to tie-up with the District Industries Centre to conduct entrepreneurship development programmes for the benefit of students.
Rashmi, lecturer in economics, who secured the 429th rank in the Union Public Service Commission exams, was felicitated on the occasion.
