The conclave is part the school’s initiative launched four years ago, that made entrepreneurial training a part of its curriculum. “There is no grading or evaluation for this, so students enjoy this without any pressure,” he said. Cosmetics, culinary and handicraft products, created by the students, were later sold by them through the Young Entrepreneurs Bazaar, organised in the school periodically. With a lot of focus on entrepreneurship in the present scenario, the school wanted to provide exposure to them at the earliest, the principal added.

S.N. Padmaja, Victory Insights, who serves as a consultant to the school for the initiative, said over 700 students from other schools and colleges had registered to attend the conclave.
