Underlining the relevance of this program in today’s context, Ajay Parasrampuria, Lead facilitator and Co-Founder Business Design Lab, said, “The COVID-19 global pandemic has caused all businesses to pause, relook and adapt to the “new normal”. Businesses are faced with greater challenges and constraints, bringing many organizations to vulnerable stages in their business cycle. Over 54 per cent of startups (as per NASSCOM Survey) are looking to pivot their Business to survive. Simultaneously, for the Indian economy to grow, we need 1,000 companies to grow and scale-up in the next few years. (McKinsey Report, 2020).
