How this course will help you

  1. Entrepreneurial thinking is valued in the industry, whether by a big corporate house or by a start-up
  2. Entrepreneurship is fast emerging as a valued learning initiative and numerous govt. and non-govt. entities and agencies are encouraging the youth to take up entrepreneurial activities.
  3. Entrepreneurship is an upcoming big thing in terms of youth employment, business opportunities and overall growth.
  4. Moreover, there is hesitancy due to a lack of knowledge about entrepreneurship as a viable business opportunity and a lack of awareness about the entrepreneurial ecosystem i.e. where and how to get support services and funding etc.
