I write on various topics and one of the topics is healthcare. Being a dietitian, freelance writer, blogger, choreographer and an entrepreneur, there are some things which catch my attention fast.

My husband is involved with the organisers of the event and that’s how I came to know about it. It is an interesting event which is an initiative of the Alumni Association of IIT Kanpur, organised in association with IIT Kharagpur and is supported by PAN IIT, IIM Ahmedabad Alumni Association, PAN IIM and Alumni Centre Bangalore.

As somebody who is involved in a start-up and new entrepreneurship, I know how important it is to connect with the right people. Social entrepreneurs use their skills and their ideas to help society. They help in uplifting others and bring social and economic changes for downtrodden.

As a writer in the healthcare sector and as an entrepreneur, I wanted to share this information with others. This event is for building awareness about Social Entrepreneurship and connecting new and emerging Social Enterprises to Investors.
