Arete Investors- The founder and partners at Arete speak-
“We take pride in managing a mutual fund for the students and faculty at IWSB. Till now, they have invested a sum of Rs.1,80,000 together. With this corpus, we invest in equity and generate returns for both our valued investors, as well as ourselves. In terms of learning we derive from the entire process; which though, is not tangible like the monetary returns, but is of great value to us.
As of now Arete is executed by three students of second year batch, Rishab Pruthi(founder) by Gaurav Agrawal (cofounder )and Kriti Kankani.
Jmd Pratza- The founder Kannu Mangotra speaks-
I started my venture in the 1st year of my PGPM course at IWSB. It was the month of September when I started. It was about supplying certain food items to college canteens. I started with IILM canteen whose owner has shifted now to Gurgaon. Then, I expanded it to other colleges also. In the month of March, I, along with my friends, put a stall in the Galgotia College where we generated revenue of about Rs23000 in three days. I did my summer internship in the same project. One of my friends also joined me during the internship. I faced a lot of challenges and I learned a lot of things during this time. Now, I am clear of how am I going to do it in future on a large scale. I committed a lot of mistakes; I also had some sleepless nights. But now I am happy that I have learned a lot of things and I can make a new start.
