After completing his graduation (Engineering) in 2014, Yashvardhan Goyal realised that this is not something that he wants to do for the rest of his life. Event management was something that interested him a lot. He started visiting event planners for jobs, but the response was not that good. But with his experiences in event management since first year of college, he landed with an event management company of his own “jRnyEntertainments” in 2015.
Yashvardhan started his career as a freelance sponsorship manager for a Delhi base event management company. He worked there for almost two months. ”When I told about this to my parents they said “tent wala banega”, “Engineering karke koi ijjat ni degaa”. But in the end I chose to follow my dreams & today I am happy that I took that decision.”
Since November, 2014 he started pitching for college fests & cracked IIT Bhubaneswar as the first event with IIT And Pakistani singer Falak shabir. A concert attended by more than 15000+ Students. With exclusive artist management to writing around 200 poetries he is a true example of dream chasers.
Below are a few glimpses of events managed by him:
and many more…
Q: When did event management interest you? What triggered you to take this as your professional career?
In the second year of my college journey, I got the chance to lead the organizing committee of the fresher’s party. It was a great learning experience and it made me realize that engineering as a profession is not something that I want to do for the rest of my life. The dynamic nature of event management interested me a lot. I was happy seeing young talent of the first year performing to their best. From there only Artist management came into my perspective. I love being surrounded by artists, I feel that being an event manager, it’s our responsibiliy to develop the artists. After this realization, here I am, doing a full time Artist & Event Management.
Q: When did you find the company? How was the support from family?
I started my Company in January, 2015. There was no support from the family in the intial days, they used to say “kya kar rha h?? Engineering ki lga rha he… koi ijjat ni dega .tent wala bangea?? ” . But still I chose to pursue my dreams.
Q: What type of events have you managed during your college life? One best thing you learned from your experiences that’s still guiding you through?
During my student life, I used to manage College Cultural Fest and Freshers party. The one best thing I learned from the experiences is professionalism into my works that is still guiding me through.
Q: What were the initial struggles that you faced during your journey so far?
As I am from an Engineering background, nobody was willing to give me work, but I worked hard understood every possible detail about managing an event through my limited resources. In the end, I got the chance to manage an event at IIT Bhubaneswar, that proved to be a big turning point in my career.

Any IIT is a big trademark term when it comes to colleges, managing that event was a big task, with limited practical knowledge of Events .I learnt a lot from that event.

One quote on Facebook that I read in the earlier days of my career that “Stop thinking start doing whatever you have wherever you are”.

Whenever I travel to a new city and I get to interact with students, new people, professors, to know what they feel, what singers feel & every show comes with a package of new experience & learning for me.
