After promoting entrepreneurship across colleges, the Governement of Kerela now takes a step further as it launches the flagship Student Entrepreneurship Policy for the school students of the state.
The state also runs Startup Village which is India’s first telecom technology business incubator. The launch is the second stage of last year’s initiative of offering incentives to college students wanting to set up business start-ups.
Under this second phase, this policy will encourage innovation and innovative business ideas by youngsters especially school going students starting from standard 8th. These students will be encouraged from the tender age by giving them the opportunity to explore original thinking and learn computer programming languages in depth which will give them a great foundation to begin a startup from first year in college and have a successful company by their fourth year in college.
Additionally, the state will also come up with a new project that offers 100 teams of five college students each a Startup Tool Box, which will have high-end computers, smartphones and other technology items required to create a startup company.
