An entrepreneur leap! Book Café Inauguration at IIM K

“Books, coffee, shakes and smoothies” – Served on our very own campus, by our very own seniors!

Two of our PGP13 alums from IIM Kozhikode, Amit Kaurav and Vineet, have started their journey towards entrepreneurship. They have entered into a joint venture with DC Books to setup a book cafe in IIMK. They also plan to run the chain across various other B-Schools.

The Book Café was inaugurated today, 27th June 2011, by the director at IIM K, Dr. Debashis Chatterjee. As a part of inauguration, unlimited beverages and snacks were served today to the students.

The café is located in the heart of the campus, close to academic block and hostels. The cafe is going to be an important part of our Kampus experience. The ambiance is pretty relaxing, with soft music playing in the background. The menu runs across varieties of smoothies, shakes and coffee. There are plug points for charging of laptops in order to make the place a perfect blend of formal/informal discussions, which is the most important part of life at a B-School.

A leap like this makes us reiterate the famous saying by William James, “Be an entrepreneur, for the best use of life is to spend it for something that outlasts it.”
