The College Startup Program
A program thoughtfully designed which challenges the campus culture and creates an ecosystem of student leaders, mentors, investors, and corporate partners help forge a path for our students to become entrepreneurs, initiators, leaders and support their development for life. Our network also opens doors to mentorship, marketing, business development and igniting the culture of innovation and initiatives in the campus.
The implementation takes place in different phases and a detailed audit report is generated, which is shared to the management on a monthly basis for review.
The program is implemented by a full time resource person who is placed in the campus. The number of contact days per week is determined by the program model chosen by the college management.
The impact and the effectiveness of the program is skillfully measured by the outcome in every phase and at the end by the milestones set, which are set before the commencement of the program.
ProductKraft is a program solely designed for engineering products at the college campuses, inspiring innovation and encourage entrepreneurship. The core focus is to develop innovative solutions, for the existing problems in the society, using technology.
The students experiences the entire life cycle of the product development, which starts from ideation and design thinking. The feasible ideas are validated by the industry experts on various parameters. Before the MVP is designed or built, the students are exposed and trained on various latest technologies and the various aspects of product development.
The prototypes or the products developed are taken through a rigorous process, which we call "Dream-Discover-Disrupt" stage, so that their market feasibility is established. They are also taught about the business concepts like Business Model, Lean Canvas Model, Customer Survey etc.
The top products are taken for further incubation and exposed to the various support, mentorship and investments from the startup ecosystem.
Entrepreneurship or innovation cannot be learnt through text books and curriculum. But just like mathematics, the probability of success or failure can be accessed with a structure approach.
For example, if we launch a product without a customer survey, the chances of its rejection or failure is comparatively high, as against a customer survey properly done before designing and launching the product. A structured approach towards entrepreneurship not only increases the chances of success but also saves valuable time and resources, which can be utilized in scaling up the business. ‘Learning from other’s experience’ and enhancing the learning curve several fold, is achieved by a thoughtfully designed structured curriculum approach.
Talkspiration aims at inspiring people through talks, which are in the form of personal or community success stories or interviews.
With the advent of social media, the entire world's information seems to have come at our finger tips. And consequently we are aware of few names who are outstanding achievers and change makers. Yet, there are thousands of heros, achievers and change makers who work silently. Talkspiration aims at bringing those champions into light, who could be just our next door neighbor, and who is contributing significantly to make our life better.

Storytelling is the process of using fact and narrative to communicate something to your audience. Some stories are factual, and some are embellished or improvised in order to better explain the core message.
Storytelling is an art form as old as time and has a place in every culture and society. Why? Because stories are a universal language that everyone — regardless of dialect, hometown, or heritage — can understand. Stories stimulate imagination and passion and create a sense of community among listeners and tellers alike.
Telling a story is like painting a picture with words. While everyone can tell a story, certain people fine-tune their storytelling skills and become a storyteller on behalf of their organization, brand, or business. You might’ve heard of these folks — we typically refer to them as marketers, content writers, or PR professionals.
Every member of an organization can tell a story. But before we get into the how, let’s talk about why we tell stories — as a society, culture, and economy. Click here to know more.
