Over 150 MSMEs from clusters all over Uttar Pradesh assembled for ‘Industrial Mahakumbh’ which was held in collaboration between Indian Industries Association (IIA) and Sharda University. The aim was to promote ideas exchange and nurture entrepreneurial skills among the students. Over 200 students participated in the interactive sessions and presented over 20 startup ideas and projects. 

AD Pandey, secretary, IIA said, “We hope such initiatives will help bridge the gap between industry expectations and student knowledge to improve employability of students and also foster innovative entrepreneurial ideas. We plan to impart six month training for students across different industries to work on live projects. This will help in empowering the 80% majority of students who need more mentoring and guidance to have a successful career.”

Speaking on the occasion P K Gupta, chancellor, Sharda University, said, “Fostering a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship is one of our key focus areas. We aim to help students pursue their entrepreneurial dream and help arrange for seed capital in our effort to promote new ideas and build new industries. We are hoping that this new consortium will bring more power to the startup momentum in our country and globally.”

BN Singh, district magistrate, Gautam Budh Nagar (UP) talked about ensuring transparent delivery of government schemes for the welfare of the people and extended his support to the youth for innovation-driven startups.
