“I have three tutorial tests tomorrow”, Kaushik whined as we kick-started the first meet of the last week of what has so far been an exhilarating journey. Right after, he sat down with his laptop, engrossed typing down the penultimate press release for Conquest 2016. His position very aptly represented the situation many of us have been in over the past weeks, tirelessly aiming to pull off the largest student run startup challenge in India. The work room today was filled with people at 8:25 pm for a meet scheduled for 8:30, most people having rushed through their dinners, some even skipping theirs. One could sense the excitement with ideas on even the minutest details pouring in from all sides as we now attempt to bring our masterpiece to reality. And as we inch closer to the grand finale, the day we have waited for, for over a year, it is only fitting to thank all pillars who have supported us throughout this journey.
To begin with, we would like to express our gratitude to DCB Bank. A private sector, commercial bank based in India, DCB Bank has over 200 branches and 400 ATMs across the country. DCB bank aims to gradually expand to tier 3 and tier 6 cities, a vision that we at Conquest strongly share. Loans for Small and medium enterprises, Mid Corporate customers and individual needs, and Agri & Inclusive Banking are some of the prominent services and products offered by DCB Bank. Latest initiatives include Aadhaar based ATMs which are gradually coming up in different states.
It is indeed a privilege to associate with DCB Bank as title sponsor for Conquest 2016!
