Global College For Entrepreneurship and Commerce, Jaipur and Neerja Modi School, Jaipur, jointly organized the second edition of Jaipur Student Entrepreneurship Fest on May 11th at Neerja Modi School. It was a fun-filled, enthralling experience for all the attendees. The fest comprised of a speaker session and a series of business-themed competitions. While the theme of the speaker session revolved around increasing suicide cases amongst teenagers & why is it important to pursue one’s dreams and not do something that is forced by peers, the competitions aimed at promoting the concept of thinking out of the box.
