Dr Michelle listed the four vital characteristics of successful entrepreners: “positivity”, “courage to face challenges”, “determination” and “resourcefulness”. Chief Guest Anshul Mittal, Executive Director of Mittal Appliances Limited, Indore and an alumnus of ICAS of 1995-97 batch urged the students to embrace values like meritocracy, honesty, rule of law and fear of god in their career.
