SAI inspires students towards Entrepreneurship
The annual Business Model Competition of SAI International School was conducted on Thursday, July 19, 2018 on the theme ‘Startup India’. Shri Manas Ranjan Panda, Director, Software Technology Parks of India (STPI) graced the occasion as the Chief Guest and judged the competition.
A wide gamut of innovative Business models was brilliantly exhibited by students in the Indraprastha auditorium of the School. From addressing issues related to waste management, to providing access to doctors and health facilities, to bringing back Ayurveda, to creating awareness on mental health issues, to making organic pens, each project reflected the students concern for the society at large. The projects also showcased the in-depth back ground research like evaluation of feasibility, requirement analysis as well as meticulous detailing of process, budget, profitability etc.
Shri Panda in his address congratulated the students for their creativity and coming up with solutions to many of the pertinent environmental and social hazards. He added that the Startup India vision 2020 will soon be accomplished with such encouraging models. He suggested for creation of an ‘Incubation Centre’ in the School to encourage the budding entrepreneurs.
