"The urge to be different and do things on a different note led me to EPPI; I was flabbergasted by EPPI's concept, scalability of the project and their working model. The amount of professionalism and transparency in their day-to-day activities was the main factor for me to get into EPPI. Here we have the most hi-tech workplace in a village; this itself was a different concept of its kind. Every day brings in a new challenge, brings out the best in oneself and makes innovation as a part of a daily routine. EPPI is a unique work place where we write our own pay cheques. Elsewhere people dream about doing things differently, here we do things with a difference." - Avin Nanjappa, an Graduate in Marketing and Media Communication from MCRPV (affiliated to London school of Journalism)
When I first heard about EPPI and what they were doing, I wanted to see for myself if something like this was actually possible. After spending two days at the plantations and seeing the way people worked here, I was convinced that this was not some family run business or some village enterprise, but a full fledged corporate venture working with high technology and management practices. Just that the physical area of operation was not in the conventional space that we are used to for such corporate companies. The flexibility, freedom to work, innovate, learn, experiment and touch people's lives were some of the things that appealed to me most here. Little did I realize then, that these were just the tip of the iceberg!!! - Jayanth Ganapathy, an Mechanical engineer and National level Table Tennis player
