Chairman Madhu Pandit Dasa speaks at Development Dialogue 2015

Madhu Pandit Dasa was accompanied on the panel by Narayana Murthy of Infosys and Jeffrey L Bradach of The Bridgespan Group, along with Moderator Kasturi Rangan of Harvard Business School, USA.

During the panel discussion Narayana Murthy pointed out the role competition in corporate entrepreneurship plays in sparking enthusiasm, and how such competition will help the sector achieve new heights. Madhu Pandit Dasa added to this point saying that currently Akshaya Patra has no competitor, but encouragement and the sharing of information will help others take up social entrepreneurship. "Being a non-profit set-up, we are ready to pass on our functioning model," he said.
