About CBC

CKP Community is a community blessed with education, right from the early days. The members of the community were highly reputed government officers/ministers (Eg: Dr. C.D. Deshmukh, the first FinMin of Free India) or highly placed officers in industry, on account of their erudition and honesty. However, except for a few odd technocrats, entrepreneurship was not a norm in the community. This resulted in very few intra-community networking opportunities, unlike the other communities.


As the number of entrepreneurs began growing, a need was felt to create a uniting body, wherein the entrepreneurs could come together to leverage their contacts for the benefit of their fellow entrepreneurs and give relevant opportunities of potential growth to their community.

This is based on the ‘Principle of Giving’ without wherein the entrepreneurs would focus on what value they can create for their fellow entrepreneurs rather than focusing on what their takeaways would be.

Drawing on the experience gained at other business networks and communities, CKP Business Club (CBC, as it is now known) was formed by a few CKP Entrepreneurs in 2013. Since then, it has gone from strength to strength.Today, we have over 40 members from diverse fields like manufacturing, education, CAs, Company secretary, software & hardware industry, Advertising, Printing, Construction, Catering, Counseling and Sales Consultancy etc.

This ‘Unity in Diversity’ makes for a very unique experience as a lot of expertise is present in the room itself.

CBC also welcomes high level officers from various industries to join us, to see how you can utilize the contacts of our entrepreneurs to fulfill your needs and requirements, as well as provide our entrepreneurs opportunities from their network.

We meet twice the month at Dadar & Thane. The venues selected are conducive to very professional meetings.
