Dr. Madhu Chitkara was part of the panel discussion on the topic “She Means Business” at TiECON Chandigarh 2018 on 9th March 2018. TiECON Chandigarh was aimed to create an energizing entrepreneurial environment for start-up founders to get inspired and take off. It brought together diverse, innovative and dynamic ventures and showcase an expert ecosystem that ignited entrepreneurial minds.
Speaking about her experience of becoming a woman entrepreneur, Dr. Madhu Chitkara said, “We being well-known academicians for a long time decided to start something of our own in 2002. With my husband being a strong academician, I have picked up the role of going to regulatory authorities to get the things going for our organization. It was tough feeling at that point of time for a woman to go after the government authorities to make things happen. I have decided to take this as a challenge and made it happen. In the process, I have learnt how to be patient and this experience I had initially is helping me run the university successfully today. Everything depends on your mindset.”
With some stats and facts which reciprocate the main discussion topic, Dr. Madhu Chitkara concluded saying, “At Chitkara University, we have about 130 patents filed and 70% of the patents were filed by women. Also, Chitkara University as a part of its corporate social responsibility adopted 5 villages and started training the women from these villages. 2000 women from these villages are now working in Chitkara University. Women stand for their work ethics and men bring in the willpower to get things done and their combination as a team has done wonders at Chitkara University. The stats revealed are in favour the topic being discussed – She Means Business.”
