Provenance 13 was a life changing experience for us here at Moon Lake. We learnt new things, met inspiring personalities and most importantly realized one thing- No matter who you are or where you’re from; you can always make an impact. You can make a difference.

At Moon Lake, we are all geared up to be that difference. We seek to make India more self-sufficient in the cultivation & processing of pearls. In the coming years, we also aim to design and manufacture pearl Jewellery.

-Thoughts from Provenance 2013 consolation prize winners, students of School of Jewellery Management, Manipal University.

'Provenance' proved to be a life changing experience for us. The only thing that intrigued me at that point of time was, of course, the prize money but on a serious note, I found the idea of developing something useful which can be brought into the hands of dental practitioners or students and make money out of that very fascinating. The thought of participating was alright but participating during my internship wasn’t a very tactful one, I realize now. The earlier, the better. During my internship, was the time I had the most innovative collaboration with Dr. Lokendra Gupta, my mentor.

Provenance ultimately proved to be the stepping stone of whatever little I have achieved so far. However, the confusion of having a start up, being a Dental Graduate was always there. It is difficult for a medical student with no background of Engineering and Management to run a start up. It was a big risk that I took but then Entrepreneurship is all about taking risks and discovering things on your way. It is about learning through self effort. I would conclude by saying that I owe a lot to MUTBI, Innovation Centre, and the popular business plan competition, Provenance, for giving an entirely new dimension to my perspective and my career.

“As students, it takes a huge quanta of courage to start-up and even more to sustain it. But we at Gyan Lab (ADD-on-GYAN) were able to do so at a time when the whole subject of student entrepreneurship was a mere concept in Manipal – all thanks to MUTBI and Provenance. You are lucky to have this opportunity as MUTBI is back with Provenance – start-up and be the master of your own destiny.”
