The inauguration ceremony also featured a keynote address by the Chief Guest and IIMB alumnus from the Post Graduate Programme in Software Enterprise Management (PGSEM), batch of 2004-07, PC Musthafa. He is the Founder and CEO of iD Fresh Food, which offers fresh and preservative-free ready-to-cook food items, mentioned the press release.

“All this was possible because we did not give up. I had the courage to leave a well-paid job to make idlis. There was a time when we took nine months to sell 100 packets. Today, we feed idlis to more than two million Indians across the globe,” said PC Musthafa in his keynote address.

“Your human contribution will be in terms of creativity and specific skills such as courtesy, care, empathy and the like, as all that will differentiate you from machines, in the current business world dominated by technology, AI, etc. Soft skills will differentiate successful managers from others. Remember, there is much more to learning than what is done in the classrooms, such as, guest talks, networking opportunities with visitors, entrepreneurs, etc. Do reach out to this wealth of knowledge and build networks to enhance your learning experience,” said IIMB Director Prof. RT Krishnan, in his welcome address.
