Indi Deol Awarded Visiting Fellowship from Aston University
Indi Deol attended the Aston University Awards and collected a Visiting Fellowship award as an alumnus of the Goldman Sachs 10, 000 Small Businesses Programme.
The award was given in recognition of the contribution they have made across the university to the understanding, awareness and experience of growth in business and entrepreneurship.
This awards ceremony marked the inaugural time that the members of the 10, 000 Small Businesses programme have been given recognition for their achievements.
Attending were business owners from a wide range of sectors and throughout their careers have supported Aston University, its students, staff and research endeavours in activities like the KEEN and KTP projects.
They also provided mentoring to MBA students through the BSEEN and SERV projects, which were social impact initiatives involving students in policy development and lobbying within the university, recruiting students to their businesses and acting as live case studies in taught modules in business courses.
Indi Deol was given his Fellowship title at a lunch event that took place at Aston Business School on 14th January 2014.
It was attended by Professor Mark Hart, Professor of Small Business and Entrepreneurship and Academic Lead on Goldman Sachs 10, 000 Small Businesses Programme and also Professor George Feiger, Executive Dean of Aston Business School.
Professor George Feiger said:
“I am delighted that thirteen of the 10,000 Small Businesses programme alumni have been awarded Visiting Industrial Fellowships.”
“We value the contribution these high growth, entrepreneurial business leaders are making to the work of Aston Business School and the key role they play in fostering relationships between the small business community and Aston University.”
The intention of Aston University is to continue this ceremony of recognition in the future. The university thus plans to award these Fellowships every year to different small business leaders who have excelled within the Small Businesses programme.
It is hoped that this will highlight the good work of these business owners, and also give much deserved recognition to those who have demonstrated commitment to supporting Aston Business School and the wider business community.
Commenting on receiving the award, Indi Deol expressed his delight at this recognition from the Aston Business School, saying:
“I am thrilled to have been awarded with this prestigious title of Visiting Industrial Fellow by Aston University.”
“Not only has the 10,000 Small Businesses programme been extremely rewarding for us as a business, but the relationship with Aston University has also continued to grow and strengthen long after my graduation.”
“I look forward to continuing our current fast growth and supporting other start up businesses within the region going forwards.”
The Visiting Fellowship award marks an important mark of recognition for Aidem Digital as the business continues to develop and grow, and support even more new development within the business community.
