“Starting new ideas should not be restricted to country's already existing policies. There are ventures that have started sans the policies, but are doing the business, so idea is more important. First know where to work and once you start, it’s about your effort for that idea's sustainability," he said.
The event later extended to a Q&A session where Agrawal underlined that education is not restricted to university and tended to their queries about entrepreneurship. He also participated in an informal networking session with the participants.
X-preneur is a platform for youth, students, business enthusiasts and fresh graduates to have a chance to interact, network and learn from the experience of working entrepreneurs and vice versa.
"With X-preneur, we aim to bring the stories of such entrepreneurs who are working on their ideas and can give people their real time experiences not the defined perspective of what success is, so any aspiring entrepreneur can get the platform to learn," said moderator of the event and Clock b's representative for Event and Public Relations, Suraj Raj Pandey.
