New Delhi, March 20: An M.Com student, Neha Hasabe, from Pune’s Brihan Maharashtra College of Commerce (BMCC) won the #CEOForAMonth competition organised by Wooplr, in which nearly 2 lakh students from 50,000 colleges across India participated. Hasabe, will now directly work with Wooplr’s CEO, Arjun Zacharia. But the biggest takeaway is that Wasabe will get a stipend of Rs. 1 lakh during this time period. The #CEOForAMonth competition started on February 3, 2018, and on March 11, Hasabe was declared as the winner!
Along with Hasabe, 24 other students from diverse regions like Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir to Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu were selected as city leads for Wooplr.
Speaking about the competition, founder of Wooplr Arjun Zacharia said that the event is a hunt for young and aspiring entrepreneurs who want to prove their calibre. He registered surprise and appreciated the fact that the campaign garnered the right amount of traction among students. The fact that over 2 lakh students participated within a small span of time speaks about the success of the campaign. The competition’s edgy tagline, ‘Don’t Get a Job, Be a CEO’ also rang a bell with the aspiring students. The campaign’s text further reads- ‘Wooplr celebrates your spirit of innovation or ‘jugaad’ and we know it will make you a leader.’
Hasabe who hails from a middle-class family is quite ecstatic about her big win. She is interested in finding out the challenges that a CEO has to face. Hasabe said that she would first set up her store on Wooplr after starting with her CEO-internship. She added that the #CEOForAMonth challenge has given her a great opportunity to prove her mettle. Overjoyed at the prospect of being a part of Wooplr, Hasabe also said that she could no longer hold her excitement and she is looking forward to her stint in the company.
