Navonmesh, the entrepreneurial convention, is a B-plan event which aims to breathe in a new life to the spirit of innovation in the country. The biggest problem faced by the innovators in our country is the lack of proper business advice. A plan woven around their innovations would enable them to take it further. This event is the flagship event at Avenues 2014, the annual business festival of IIT Bombay.
At Navonmesh, our objective is to offer a helping hand to those innovators and sensitize the modern business school fraternity about the potential and power of such innovations.
