Dr. Achutya Samanta, Founder of KIIT and KISS addressed the delegation and inspired them with excerpt from his individual entrepreneurial journey. In the four day meet, apart from the extensive theoretical session that were conducted, the delegates were also taken on site visits all around KISS and other social enterprises to get a real time exposure on social entrepreneurship.

The meet led to creative intermingling among the intellectuals, proactive cross border leanings and opened the doors to promote more such programs. This would lead to the establishment of stronger relations among existing partners to achieve the common goal towards a better and more responsible society.
