IIFT was proud to host Mr. Jagdish Goel, Chairman, and Managing Director, Ornate Solar, an alumnus from the batch of 1977 for an interactive session with students. Mr. Goel chose to start the session with ‘the truth of existence’ by narrating a story from his life and driving home the point that family and parents, in particular, accept their children the way they are. He motivated everyone to have immense faith in themselves and meet all the challenges of the world head-on without any second thoughts about failure and rejection. Expanding the line of discussion, he touched upon the Licence Raj system that existed in our country before 1991 and talked about the various challenges that businesses faced in that era versus the plethora of opportunities that exist before businesses today for growth. Towards the end of the session, he encouraged everyone present in the audience to believe in the power of their dreams and their ability to make them come true.

Businesses that are built to solve problems go a long way. Take redBus for example. When Phanindra Sama couldn’t go home for Diwali in 2005, he realized the massive information gap that exists in the road transport industry. When traveling from Bengaluru to Bandipur in a rented car turned out to be a bad experience for Bhavish Aggarwal, he connected with the travel woes of the multitudes and founded Ola. Similarly, in 2015, Aditya Goel faced numerous issues that led him to start something new. Aditya, who was looking for the right warehouse partners for his company Ornate Solar, was off-put by the lack of transparency in pricing and operations in the warehousing industry. This is when he decided to start Ware — an on-demand warehousing solutions startup. Along with his classmate from IIT-BHU, Rahul Raj, Aditya conceptualized the business model of Ware to help businesses of all sizes streamline their supply chain and reduce their warehousing costs.
