I have been working with the college since 1987 and have seen many students excel in their careers. We are trying to make our students future-ready and hope that they will embrace the new normal. We have shifted our classes from offline to online and I recommend all the students to treat their homes as classrooms. Following the SOP’s is important in the fight against COVID.”

Dr. Satish Bhairannawar, Dean, SDMCET, Dharwad says, “Thank you Vinay our alumni a successful entrepreneur for organizing this webinar and to all the attendees. I extend my support to entrepreneurship and innovation and we soon plan to start an Entrepreneurs Corner at the college. Currently, we have 6 startups on our college premises, and they are inching towards success and have Government of Karnataka backing. Let us support each other in these bad times of COVID and stay safe.”

Vinay Barigidad, Managing Director, InfoVision Labs quips, “It was an enriching experience to share memories of my college days with other students and colleagues. I would like to pledge my support to the college and help future entrepreneurs to build the nation. Millennials feel accountable for many issues in both the workplace and the wider world and I hope they are able to embrace the change. There are many opportunities where they can spare time for good causes at the local level. These local, small initiatives will have a ripple effect that would cascade from the individual to the broader workplace to society at large, thus creating a positive impact. I am happy to address the millennials’ pessimism by doing more for the society and lead the way in creating an economy that works for everyone.”

“Chai With Vinay” is a webinar series that captures success stories of “Business Transformation and Beyond” as businesses go digital post the pandemic. This new and innovative, intelligent audience web series will be powered by InfoVision Labs and will empower individuals, businesses, agencies, and people from all walks of life who are accepting the new normal.  It is a series that will eliminate the advantages currently wielded by the walled gardens as we all welcome the “transformation” era.
