These days, students are awed and motivated at the same time, to figure out the startup stories of budding entrepreneurs. Lately, India has produced some of the finest and successful startups; for instance, the rise and rise of Oyo Rooms by its Founder, Ritesh Aggarwal – lifted hopes for many youngsters to make an idea work, which not only solves the problems of people but also brings new employment opportunities in the market. The Government of India also strengthens Entrepreneurship as a career amongst people of all ages alike, with initiatives such as the Startup India, Digital India and Skill India programme. The move is to ensure that youngsters get acquainted with government policies that promote entrepreneurship, by giving them special benefits like tax exemptions, financial assistance from banks at low Rate-of-Interest (R.O.I), amongst other facilities. In 2015, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced this initiative to assist and guide youngsters who aim at working towards innovation, development and commercialisation of new products.
In the wake of the trend of entrepreneurship, universities in India and overseas have come up with courses on this subject. The courses are created with an intent to develop analytical skills and strategic competencies amongst the students. Lessons would also be given to prepare students to work on planning a business idea, on getting financial support from banks, angel investors and streamlining their business growth prolifically.
There are both short-term and long-term courses offered by these universities, with guest lecturing and mentoring by Managers and CEOs of the leading corporates and startups. One doesn’t have to be a CEO only to run a startup to success; there are roles for innovative thinkers to fit the space in the already growing startups. Individuals with an understanding of how to run a business, are also offered roles in the Management Team of companies looking for smart ideas to scale-up the growth.
