The IIM Lucknow Alumni Association will be organising the Entrepreneur Summit 2019, the second edition of its annual entrepreneur meet on November 16, in at The Leela Palace and SAIF Partners Office, Bengaluru. With this meet, the association aims to bring together IIM Lucknow's alumni who have been a part of the entrepreneurial and startup ecosystem.

This event is intended to bring together alumni entrepreneurs, investors, and ecosystem enablers to network and help each other in our endeavour to build an even more thriving community of thought leaders in the innovation space."
