‘Woman Power in Entrepreneurship’ on display at Jaipuria Noida
One of the most interesting discussions held recently at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Noida was on ‘Woman Power in Entrepreneurship’. The three ladies – renowned Art Promoter and Founder of Ati Art Gallery, Ms. Poonam Sarin; Ms. Anu Lall, Founder and Director of Snartak IT Solutions; and Ms. Runjhun Gupta, the young Founder of ‘Dance Addiction’ and ‘Zipout’ – recounted their inspiring stories to the management students of Jaipuria Noida. The message they drove home was that there are no obstacles to a willing mind.
Ms. Poonam Sarin spoke about her life and how she cultivated her interest in painting after getting married to a commercial pilot at the young age of 19.
“The advantage, of course, was that I got to see and appreciate the various art and cultural centres of the world, including the Louvre at Paris,” recollected Ms. Sarin for the benefit of her audience at Jaipuria Noida. “I started out as a consultant with an art agency in Delhi about 18 years ago, before starting out on my own.”
Ms. Runjhun Gupta, just 28 years of age, with an Executive MBA in Finance from IIM Kolkata, has always been a passionate dancer. Today, her firm links up with numerous corporate houses for centrally organised dance classes.
“Having been a part of the corporate world for more than 5 years, I understood that dancing could be a fantastic stress-buster for all kinds of professionals as it had been for me,” recalled Runjhun Gupta in front of the youngsters of Jaipuria Noida. “It was with this conviction that in 2009 I decided to start ‘Dance Addiction’, and ‘Zipout’ a little later.”
Ms. Anu Lall pointed out that over and above the challenges of doing business in India, like delayed payments, procedural delays, documentation, etc., women entrepreneurs have to face numerous mind-set challenges as well.
“Even prospective boyfriends/ husbands think you would be headstrong and aggressive, even before you’ve met them, just because you are running a company.”
Ms. Poonam Sarin seconded this view, saying that it took a long time for her to convince her family to allow her to follow her passion. “Time and age matures the family as well as the husband,” she concluded.
The sessions with guest lecturers were followed by a poster-making competition on the theme of ‘Creative Business Ideas’, organised by the E-Cell of Jaipuria Noida.Read more

Jaipuria Noida, alumni executive body meet held outside the college campus became a big hit
Jaipuria Institute of Management, Noida has for the first time, organized its alumni executive body meet, outside the college campus.

Efforts are on to find ways to generate more alumni fund and increase the level of interaction among the members.
April 14, 2012 has become a milestone in the Alumni saga of Jaipuria Noida. Earlier also alumni have been interacting, sharing ideas and working together to widen their network, but that was confined to the college campus. But not anymore, as the third executive body meeting of the alumni association grew out of the campus and was held at Country Inn, a hotel in Vaishali, Noida.Read more
“Unending backing by the Jaipuria faculty creates a family-like support system that a student needs at this time”, says Harshita Shukla
Harshita Shukla topped all the three semesters and nearly topped in all the individual subjects as well. This winner attitude has helped her bag a placement with Orient Fans, a CK Birla Group subsidiary. She is being taken up as a Management Trainee and will be given the opportunity to do project-based work in different departments. After this intense training and monitoring of one year, the company will decide which department she will be absorbed into.
Sharing her experience of placement, Harshita says, “The recruitment process at Orient Fans was a four stage eliminative process. The first three rounds consisted of the Aptitude Test, Group Discussion and Interview and finally, there was a last interview with the Leadership team. The first three rounds were conducted in Lucknow with over 90 students. In the aptitude test 30 students were selected to sit for the next round, which was the group discussion. After the group discussion, 13 students got selected for the personal interview round. I was finally shortlisted for the last interview with the leadership team along with four other candidates. I was the only one to be shortlisted from the Noida campus. The last interview took place on 2nd Jan 2013, after which only two candidates were selected; luckily, I cracked it and found a place in the company.”
Harshita thanks her faculty at Jaipuria for the support and guidance she received in choosing the companies and preparing for them. The intense exercise of interviews and final placements creates a lot of stress and the backing of the faculty and staff creates a family-like support system for the student, something that Harshita is thankful for.Read more
