Dimapur, Aug. 21 (EMN): Management Studies department of C-Edge College observed the ‘World Entrepreneurs’ Day 2020’ through virtual platform on the theme ‘Connecting Naga entrepreneurs to inspire’ August 21.

The day is observed worldwide to create awareness for entrepreneurship, innovation, empowerment and leadership throughout the world. The event was organised with the presence of three dynamic entrepreneurs from Nagaland namely Watila Longkumer, founder of Naro-Ki; Pito Kiba, owner of That Baker Kiba; and Zaben Murry, owner and designer of Zaben Murry Designs.

In her speech, Watila shared that she didn’t start big but it was an idea where she saw the gap of flower growers unable to sell their produce, which she grabbed the opportunity to be the connecting link to the local market and also develop her business.

Zaben Murry also shared that one should not wait for opportunity but instead create one’s own opportunity, while Pito Kiba encouraged the students to work extremely hard, to keep goals for oneself and also to fix targets every month, and most importantly to set aside time for oneself once a while.

An update from the college stated that all the speakers have shared their challenges as well as perks of their entrepreneurial journey, which prompted the students to ask many questions.

The event concluded with an interactive session moderated by Wapanginla Ao, head Management Studies department.
