PM Modi applauds LPU Alumna and ‘Simba Quartz’ founder Mandeep Kaur for her Rural IT Model

Jalandhar, May 11, 2022 (Yes Punjab News)
An MBA Alumna of Lovely Professional University (LPU), Ms Mandeep Kaur was the eminent part of the Sikh delegation that was hosted by Indian Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi at his Delhi residence.

A BBA-MBA Integrated (Marketing) programme student of 2006-2011 batch at LPU; Mandeep Kaur Sidhu is presently an established entrepreneur with her IT services and digital marketing firm- SimbaQuartz. It is running roaring at her native village Tangra, in District Amritsar.

Up till now, it has offered white-collar jobs to over 100 IT professionals, like those of managers, consultants, programmers and more. She is a job-provider to young trained IT professionals, particularly from nearby rural areas of Amritsar, J&K and Chandigarh. What started off with three- women staff members only is now a firm with annual turnover of nearly Rs 3 Crore.

Mandeep was on the PM’s guest-list in recognition of her efforts for an exemplary project, under which youth from bigger cities are getting global-level job opportunities at her village in India itself. On asking, Mandeep conversed all about her entrepreneurial journey with PM Modi, and apprised him about her innovative ‘Rural IT model’ initiative in detail.

Elated with the high-profiled meet, LPU alumna Mandeep informs that she was much surprised when she received an invite to be a part of the ‘Sikh delegation’ at PM Modi’s Delhi residence. She shares: “I got the opportunity to talk with PM Modi for three minutes. It was indeed an honour to be part of the delegation from across the world, and to have a face-to-face talk with PM Sir.”

With Mandeep’s courageous entrepreneurial journey, it is commonly considered that India ought to establish ‘IT villages’ instead of ‘IT cities’. Born and brought up in a humble family, it was never easy for Mandeep to be an entrepreneur. After completing her MBA in distinction from LPU; she did petty administrative jobs. However, instead of migrating to the US along with her husband, she chose to utilise her abilities to be a job creator as per the viewpoint of her alma-mater ‘LPU’.

In addition, Mandeep is also humane to the core. When the pandemic-lockdown in 2019-20 was imposed throughout the globe, many companies had fired their employees. As Mandeep is of some other clay, she paid salaries to her employees by taking a loan of Rs 30 lakh on herself. She is also running an NGO to serve needy ones. She is also a notified speaker in various colleges of India to motivate and uplift Indian youth.
