A graduate in any discipline with strong entrepreneurial potential to start a business


It is indeed an exciting time for starting up in India. Approximately about two ventures are born every single day and the young generation is keen to be a part of the action. Investors, industry grouping, and technology companies say that now is when India must pay attention to its youth and college campuses to nurture entrepreneurship and keep the startup momentum going. The Central and state governments are actively encouraging entrepreneurship through several initiatives. With all this eco-system revolving around the development of entrepreneurship, there really couldn't be a better time to encourage startups on and off college campuses.

Most startups today are technology-based but do not have the wherewithal to sustain the business due to a lack of knowledge in understanding the market, designing the organization, managing the financials, hiring and retaining talent, and giving good leadership, thereby leading to a huge failure rate amongst startups. Start-up training and incubation, therefore, should be given importance to nurture entrepreneurial skills and business acumen in a formal and structured way. This is important to create an entrepreneurial India. It is in this context that we are proposing specially focused programs in entrepreneurship, startup management, and business incubation. This will not only nurture entrepreneurship but in the process also become a hub for innovation and co-production with the Industry. We see a future where big businesses would, as a normal practice, co-innovate and co-produce along with startups, and this will be critical to bringing the nation on the Entrepreneurship/Innovation map.
