For all those trapped in your jobs looking to start your own venture, the govt. has some good news. A new fellowship program called “Transforming India Initiative” has been started by the Indian Government.
What is it?
Supported by the Niti Aayog’s Atal Innovation Mission and Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA), Transforming India Initiative is a unique 2-year fellowship program that will help you transform from a job seeker to an entrepreneur for a cause.
How does it help you?
The uniquely designed curriculum for the two years emphasizes Self-Transformation, Entrepreneurial Skills, Entrepreneurial Mindsets and Enterprise Excellence. The programme is designed to be experiential and practical – with 6 travel workshops, 30 social enterprises interactions, 1practitioner taught courses and project-based assessments.
The Course and The Support
The two years include an 18-month practicum where the fellows are placed in established social enterprises, working directly with CXOs and helping the enterprises accelerate their growth. Supported by experienced peer mentors, in the process, the fellows learn to establish and run their own enterprises.
Post the two-year fellowship, fellows will receive six years of integrated incubation support to ensure that their enterprises sustain and thrive!
