Mr. Ajith Kamath
A key part of entrepreneurial DNA is to lead and not to follow. The KIA has been in existence for almost half a century now. While the entrepreneurship quality is still very much alive, most of us barring one or two struggle for bare survival. There may be many external reasons but the primary one lies within us and we must strive to make intrinsic changes.
It’s a pleasure to state that industry owners from the Dakshina Kannada region are bringing in about Rs. 1000 crores in export revenue annually, giving employment to more than Ten Thousand people from the lowest strata of society majority being women. The Association has been encouraging and promoting gender sensitivity for the past three decades, a norm that is now gaining momentum with multinationals.
The need of the hour is to employ literate young workforce belonging to this region and prevent their migration to other parts of the country in search of employment in the process dislodging the social equilibrium of this region.
Your association puts in all its efforts for the formation of BYKAMPADY INDUSTRIAL TOWNSHIP AUTHORITY (BITA), a world class township with excellent and intelligent infrastructure which focuses heavily on social responsibility and environmental sustainability as major areas for business to concentrate on besides achieving economic success. Installation of LED lights is a first step towards this after a long and sustained effort.
Business is the greatest creator of value in the world. Both non-profit organizations and government depend on the prosperity and wealth business creates, as business is the ultimate source of all taxes and donations.
Lets join hands for the greater success.
