A date with biz tycoons at 'Jagriti Yatra'

‘Jagriti Yatra’, a one-of-a-kind 15-day train journey, will provide a platform to aspiring entrepreneurs to meet their role models from across various cities.

As many as 50 enterprising yatris from 27 states and 15 countries will take part in the 8000-km journey. Yatris will have the opportunity to visit various companies and meet business magnets such as Narayana Murthy of Infosys, Joe Madiath of Gram Vikas and Anshu Gupta of Goonj.

The Yatra that took off on December 24 will cover cities such as Hubballi, Chennai, Vishakapatnam, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Tilonia, Rajgir and Delhi. “This is the seventh edition of Jagriti Yatra. Our vision is to encourage entrepreneurship among the youth of small towns and villages of India. Of the 450 yatris, 46 per cent are from rural areas and 33 per cent from semi-urban areas,” said Raj Krishnamurthy, Board member of Jagriti Yatra.

The Yatris who began their journey from Mumbai have already covered Bengaluru and Hubballi.

Nishank Varshney from Rajasthan said: “I took part in 2012 to have a closer look at entrepreneurs and know how government policies work. After the journey, I felt the need to do something and set up the IIM Ahmedabad Right to Education (RTE) and Resource Centre along with alumni from the Indian Institute of Management (IIM).”
The registrations for the 2015 edition of the Yatra have already begun and details can be accessed at www.jagritiyatra.com/register
