We want to change the mindset of our young generation encouraging them to be job providers rather than job seekers.
Arvind Kejriwal Chief Minister Government of NCT of Delhi
If we start Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum and Business Blasters program in all the schools of the country, then the day is not far when we will teach in our textbooks that India is not a developing country but a developed country. We will soon see children coming out of Delhi's school giving jobs to others instead of waiting in line to get jobs.
Ms. Atishi Marlena Education Minister Government of NCT of Delhi
WHAT IS ‘BUSINESS BLASTERS’?
Business Blasters project is a practical component of the EMC curriculum for classes XI and XII, where students are given seed money (Rs. 2000 each) to build on an idea that generates profit, or solves a social problem.
Business blasters project will enable EMC students to demonstrate their problem-solving ability by creating value through:
Innovation that can be applied to multiple needs or problems
Identifying and fulfilling a need in the marketplace
taking up a problem in a community and solving it efficiently
Students may target certain consumers in the marketplace, or a group of beneficiaries affected by a social problem.
