CEO’s Message

CEO Message

We are fired up and ready to go with the launch of our state-of-the-art business incubator AIC-Great Lakes Balachandran Incubator (AGBI), under the guidance of our founder chairman, Padamshri awardee, Dr. Shri. Bala V Balachandran.

Today, when India has become the country with the world's largest young population, we have both challenges and opportunities in harnessing the energy of our youth. The future of our country thus lies in the innovation and entrepreneurship culture's development among the younger generation. With this aim, Atal Innovation Mission has chosen us as one of the Atal incubation centers to build a model incubation center.

I believe there is no better place than the Great Lakes Institute of Management for such a center. Being a world-class business school, Great Lakes brings unique industry partnerships, international strategic collaborations, and access to eminent management gurus for the startups. We are committed to building a world-class incubator to be a model and inspiration for other upcoming incubators across India. We will equip our energetic younger generation startups with experience, guidance, and resources to build global enterprises with the goal of "Make in India, Make for World".

In the Kurukshetra of the business world, our role will be of Lord Krishna, to help Arjunas (our startups) to realize their full potential to succeed with dharma. We want to change our youth's aspirations from job seekers to job creators. We will strive hard to achieve the vision of our Dr. Bala V Balachandran, to graduate as many successful startups as MBAs from the campus of Great Lakes!

CEO, AGBI
