Gayatri Bhatia (Founder and CEO of Saucery) was the first among the alumni who addressed the attendees by accrediting the role of SP Jain School of Global Management that shaped her career as an entrepreneur.
Gayatri (Intake of 2010) attributed her impressive journey so far, to her ability to take risks that she imbibed from the tri-city model of SP Jain School of Global Management.
She emphasized that we have to be able to remove ourselves from any environment where we get so comfortable and then throw ourselves into a completely new space and figure things out without even flinching.
BBA alumni, Aquilia Gonsalves (Intake of 2010), Akanksha Manglani (Intake of 2010), Varun Agarwal (Intake of 2010), KetakiVerma (Intake of 2012), Varun Shah (Intake of 2012), Prabhsehej Sethi (Intake of 2012), Vidhan Rasiwasia (Intake of 2012) and Spruha Mehta (Intake of 2010) also addressed the alumni meet.

Taking the proceeding of the event forward after the encouraging stories of alumni, Dr. Marion Igarashi graced the meet by talking about entrepreneurship based learning alongside the program.
