It has already been a year since we lost Guru Venkatrao, but his presence remains strong in our thoughts and memories. The captivating essence of Guru's personality, his remarkable accomplishments both personally and professionally, and his unwavering enthusiasm for life consistently remind us of the extraordinary legacy he has left behind. He serves as an ongoing inspiration, motivating us to embrace life to the fullest while embodying kindness and compassion.

Guru was an exceptional business executive and entrepreneur who took great pride in being an alumnus (MBA class of 1998-2000) of SP Jain Institute of Management (SPJIMR) Mumbai - one of India's top business schools. His involvement within the SPJIMR Alumni network was extensive, with him holding a leadership position within the Singapore chapter. The significance that SPJIMR held for him was immeasurable; whenever given the chance, he eagerly mentored students and fellow alumni.


In honour of Guru’s memory, we have established a scholarship bearing his name. This scholarship will be awarded to a deserving first-year MBA student at SPJIMR (Mumbai) with demonstrated financial need. It is a wonderful way to ensure that Guru's legacy lives on and continues to make a positive impact on the world around us.
