Our Focus

entrepreneurial mindsets

  • Level : School/College Education
  • Rationale : Exposure to entrepreneurship at a young age is critical to creating an entrepreneurial mindset and making entrepreneurship aspirational
  • Example activities : Narrative based curriculum, Industry experience

Converting job-seekers
to entrepreneurs

  • Level : Youth
  • Rationale : Formal jobs are insufficient in satisfying labor demand, youth need encouragement to become entrepreneurs by choice, where they can also create opportunities for others
  • Example activities : Market led business training, Advisory/Mentorship

Helping single and
microentrepreneurs grow

  • Level : Self-employed and micro-entrepreneurs
  • Rationale : Currently, a majority of these entrepreneurs are in the informal sector and subsistence driven, they need the right mindset and tools to grow and create more jobs
  • Example activities : Psychological Intervention, Professional Advisory Services
