The event was presided over by Governor ESL Narasimhan; Deputy CM Mohammed Mahmood Ali; IT, PR, and MAUD Minister KT Rama Rao; CEO of Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values, Tenzin Priyadarshi; and Chief Secretary SP Singh.
The collaboration with T-Hub is to ensure that young entrepreneurs join the movement of change and growth. Tenzin Priyadarshi mentioned that along with businesses, it is important that technology takes a shift towards ethics and transformative values.
“Instead of building a wall, America should make Mexico and Mexicans a part of America,” said the Dalai Lama. He went on to add,
“We are a family of seven billion people. The problem starts arising when we start isolating one from the other. It is important that we feel the universal oneness and compassion, which is natural to human beings, towards one another.”Here are some takeaways from the talk that Indian startups can use:
- Build things out of love that truly help everyone
In today’s cut-throat world where we are driven by valuations, funding, and downsizing competition, it is time to pause and understand the reason for actually starting up. In the busy schedules of life and chasing funding and valuation, the purpose behind starting up is lost.
- Inclusion and collaboration is the key
In the same vein, it is time that similar startups started collaborating. This thought was echoed at a shared economy panel at Bengaluru’s The Hive, where one of the questions asked was, “Why can’t startups collaborate and make rules easier for themselves and by and large help consumers?”
- Bring in diversity
