Diwali Mela 2019 at Victorious Kidss Educares

A ‘Start-up’ support for the Young Entrepreneurs

Victorious Kidss Educares, the model IB World School in Pune, had organized a sparkling show – ‘Diwali Mela’ to celebrate the festive season. This year VKE celebrated Diwali Mela by initiating an ‘Entrepreneurial Exhibition’ for the young minds in the school campus on 12th October 2019 (Saturday). This event gave an opportunity to all the students, teachers and parents to understand entrepreneurship and skills that are required to execute any creative or new idea efficiently. This is intended to hone their skills on entrepreneurship, where they are allowed to introduce their creative ideas, business skills with a goal of service, to connect with communities, and a bigger World. The idea is to bring about the awareness of talent and innovation which is there within each one of us.

We are happy that a large number of entrepreneurs and people grabbed this opportunity provided to them at ‘Diwali Mela’ and learnt how to become an industrialist, how startups work, how to develop marketing and business skills. They understood a market trend and analysed visitor’s behaviour and made some beneficial connects.

All the parents, families and friends enjoyed the grandeur of Diwali Mela while shopping down the aisles, tasting the yummy cuisines at food stalls, and playing various interesting games. While these stalls were keeping visitors engaged, there was another show that made everything stop, to be looked without a blink of an eye, it was the Dance and Music event. It was an open competition for all, to perform and steal the show.
