Youth wing was successfully Launched on 2nd September 2009, in presence of Mr. Sam Pitroda. The Mission of YouthWing is to create more Business Leaders for Gujarat . And to get the Gujarati Youth connected to their roots here in Gujarat.
The Gujarat Chamber of Commerce & Industry [GCCI] works to create and sustain an environment conducive to the growth of industry and trade in Gujarat, partnering both of them through advisory processes. Founded in 1949, by pioneers of industrial Gujarat Sheth Shri Kasturbhai Lalbhai and Sheth Shri Amrutlal Hargovandas, the Chamber has an illustrious list of doyens of trade and industry passing the torch of enlightered leadership to the next in a smooth seamless passage.
In its efforts to promote economic growth of the Country and the State, Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and industry has, over the years, initiated several focused and meaningful dialogues covering various micro and macroeconomic aspects of development.
Leadership seminar is a platform for the young entrepreneurs to meet, listen, discuss, and learn from the best entrepreneurs of the industry. We organize seminar once a month with top CEOs or Entrepreneurs of the State. Whereas every Quarter, we invite national CEOs, entrepreneurs, scientists such as Sam Pitroda, APJ Abdul Kalam, Karsanbhai Patel, etc. to provide learning from their experiences.
In the process of developing and nurturing young entrepreneurs, Youthwing has developed Mentor Mentee programme. Today, we have the best 20 Mentors (e.g. Ganpat Chowdhary, Devanshu Gandhi, Kaushal Mehta, Chandan Nath, Sawan Godiawala, etc) are available to us. These mentors are allotted one mentee with whom they spend 4 to 6 hours a month to help, guide and direct them to scale up their existing business. We also conduct a close room session for 25 selected youthwing members with Entrepreneurs like V G Patel, Sushil Handa, Utkarsh Shah and many more. Youthwing members also represent themselves in the Core committees of GCCI. We have 2 youthwing members each in committees of GCCI.
Corporate Social Responsibility
To involve corporate in the growth of our society and nation, we have CSR as one of the core initiative. We have already started two drives namely; Tree Plantation – To fight global warming, we have associated ourselves with Government, where we will plant 6000 trees in different parts of the city. Education – To help poor children get basic education, a drive has been initiated for the Construction site worker’s children. Construction sites have been identified, preliminary assessment as well as discussion with the builders is over. The schools will be functional in short time and will benefit these underprivileged children.
