Delhi govt announces 17000 entrepreneurs will interact with students in government schools

Deputy chief minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia, recently announced that as many as 17,000 entrepreneurs would be appointed to interact with students in government schools. The move is aimed at developing an entrepreneurial culture and encouraging them to think creatively.

The minister made the announcement at a review meeting of the Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum, held at the Delhi Secretariat.

An official statement said, “The minister directed the team to engage 17,000 entrepreneurs for classroom interactions with students on EMC. Last year, 4,000 entrepreneurs had interacted with 3,10,309 students and discussed their journey as entrepreneurs.”

The Delhi government also announced plans to provide seed funding for budding entrepreneurs in grades 11 to 12, with the aim of developing their entrepreneurship skills through live projects.

The minister said, “For a holistic exposure to the entrepreneurial set up, it is essential to get our students involved in field projects. We are planning to roll out the field projects in April 2020 and July 2020 for classes 12 and 11 respectively.”

He further announced that a seed fund allowance of Rs 1,000 would be provided to every student for their field projects. This would not only help them ”think-out-of-the box”, but also teach them to take a solution-centric approach.
