Speaker: Panelists : Mr Arun Bhandari & Mr Shashank Garg. Moderator : Mr Sanjay Arora


There are many variables in being a successful entrepreneur: Idea, Opportunity, Policies, a little Luck etc. However, despite all favorable factors, not all entrepreneurs become successful and not all successful entrepreneurs have all variables in their control.

There must then be some X-factor, highly centric to an individual, which separates them from the crowd.

 Learn about the Top 5 Habits/ Qualities of Nagpur’s two leading businessmen that are their secret ingredients of success.
