Sidhartha: The Ecopreneur (Leading RCB’s green initiatives)

India’s most reputed and prestigious business school, the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore recently witnessed an enlightening discussion on “Going Green-for a sustainable future”,  one of the most critical issues facing mankind today. This discussion was the flagship event of Eximius, the Entrepreneurship Summit of IIM-Bangalore and was a solution oriented discussion unlike other green discussions which just reiterate the problem. The focus of the discussion was “Ecopreneurship” or ecological entrepreneurship.  Stalwarts from a variety of domains including government  (Mr. K Jairaj, Principal Secretary Energy, Government of Karnataka spoke about potential for entrepreneurship in the renewable energy sector), banking (Mr. P Khosla, Head of Green Banking, State Bank of India spoke of Green Initiatives taken by SBI), entrepreneurs (Mr. Harish Hande, Founder-Selco, spoke of rural electrification through his solar lights) and Intrapreneurs (Mr. Sidhartha Mallya, Director Royal Challengers Bangalore, spoke of the green initiatives of RCB) were part of the discussion. The audience comprising of the brightest young minds from across the country had an experience of the lifetime listening to the experiences and insights of the people on the podium who had gone out of their way from their normal roles to create a positive difference for the environment and society. The takeaways from the discussion were huge. It was a great learning experience for everyone in the IIM-Bangalore auditorium. Every speaker’s talk was of the highest quality. However the star of the show was not the person with the largest number of grey hair, but it was infact the youngest person on the podium, with age even less than half of any other panelist, even less than most of the people in the audience, he was none other than Sidhartha Mallya ! (And this feedback we got from the IIMB students themselves). The powerful speech, the conviction in the ambitions, the realization of stark reality and the witty replies to all pointed and twisted questions, it was there for all to see.  You can actually see the entire speech and the subsequent questions and answers right here When the discussion ended, we overheard an IIMB student telling his class mate, “We, the fans of RCB, are lucky to have such passionate and visionary leaders, taking up issues beyond normal unlike the other franchises”. With such exemplary support and guidance at the top, it’s the duty and the right of every RCB fan to do their bit for the environment. RCB is Game for Green, Are You?
