CEO of Easypack Software guides Octave Business School  students

14th October 2012, Nagpur:

During the program “ Interaction with CEOs”, Mr. Arun Saxena shared his journey as an entrepreneur with management students of Octave Business School. After completing his education in Computer Science from BITS Pilani, Mr Saxena took a plunge in entrepreneurship in early 1980s by starting a software services company in Nagpur. Those days there were very few technology entrepreneurs. He shared how his strong desire to create employment helped him overcome initial business and personal challenges. Students realized that one must have a specific objective of higher level to keep oneself going through ups and downs of any new business. He emphasized need to get working experience in relevant field and function to prepare oneself to become an entrepreneur. Otherwise lot of time is wasted during early stages of a new business. In particular the knowledge about how to change one’s approach as a company gets bigger was of immense value to all attendees. According to him, during very early stages passion, Perseverance, Will power and Experience are important. When the company has 10 employees then Team, Technology and Skills become important. For a company which has 50 employees, Time, Money and People management are important. At 200 employees, visibility and effective communication become critical. Later at 1,000 employees, Total Quality Management and an approach of Plan-Do-Check-Act are key factors. He gave an open invitation to Octave students to meet him at his office for any further guidance.
