01 December 2023
The first edition of the Quasquicentennial Entrepreneurship Summit was organized by The Scindia School from 27th to 28th November 2023. The Fest included various events such as business quizzes, product pitching contests, exhibitions showcasing innovative products and services, making of advertisement videos, and simulated stock market investments. The Chief Guest of the opening ceremony was Prof. Sajith Narayanan, Associate Dean of the School of Communication at FLAME University. The day commenced with everyone participating in ‘Brainy Bucks’ Business Quiz, which was won by The Scindia School. This was followed by ‘Stock Xcelrator’, which gave the young participants a taste of what it was like to be a Stock Broker in the 1970s. It was won by Genesis Global School. After lunch, “Ad-Quest” took place. The students had to market all the products they had bought in the auction round and everyone channeled their inner Jordan Belfort, following the classic “Sell me the pen!” The event was won by The Sanskar Valley School.
Thereafter,’The Commerce Carnival’ was held. It was a fair in which the participants had to display an item from the auction or of their choice and had to convince everyone to invest in their product in the form of cheques. The team with the greatest sum in cheques was adjudged as the winner.
A distinguished panel of judges, comprising Ms Sneha Rajput, Dr Tarika Singh Sikarwar, and Mr Vikrant Bansal, meticulously evaluated all the events and wholeheartedly praised the commendable efforts of each participant.
The closing ceremony took place in the Assembly Hall in the presence of our esteemed Chief Guest and Member of the Board of Governors, Mr Dipak Haksar. In his address to the students, Mr Haksar spoke at length about what true entrepreneurship entails- continuous improvement, adapting to the changing world, being empathetic and taking cognizance of the fact that every decision you make will contribute to the narrative of your story.
The Scindia School claimed the overall trophy; however being the host school, it was passed on to the Runners-up team of Scindia Kanya Vidyalaya.
