Instil entrepreneurship in wards, NIT chief to parents

Quote:
National Institute of Technology (NIT) director Mini Shaji Thomas has said that it was important to mentally prepare the parents to inspire their wards to take up entrepreneurship, highlighting various schemes under the start-up mission of the Centre.

She was speaking to top management representatives from 20-member engineering colleges on workshop 'Innovation and entrepreneurship development programme from 2017-18', for which NIT Trichy is the hub.

The centre for entrepreneurship development and incubation (CEDI) - a section 8 company promoted by NIT Trichy - organised the programme with a view to creating an entrepreneurship eco-system in the city.


The CEDI aims to promote innovation and entrepreneurship by converting and translating technology ideas and innovation in various disciplines of science and engineering into products, processes and services for commercial exploitation for the benefit of society.

Mini inaugurating the event emphasised the need to create entrepreneurship mindset among the graduates.

She said that academic institutions should have innovation and entrepreneurship as part of their long-term plan. There is a significant consideration for this in national institutional ranking framework. As a leading technology institution, NIT Trichy and CEDI will be happy to assist the local colleges in the domain.

CEDI director G Kannabiran explained how an institution can move up in the value chain from education-training to incubation-seed funding and mentoring.

"CEDI at NIT Trichy is an example for other institutions. Within five years, CEDI has created a meaningful impact in the local eco-system," he said.


The participating colleges shall have access to the programmes held in NIT Trichy. He highlighted that interested engineering-technology, art-science and polytechnics may register with NIT Trichy for this IEDP on or before 30 September.

It was proposed to make student-student connections of institutions, including NIT students and to create a huge impact in this domain.

EDI deputy director Shiva Shankar explained the programme details and the resources provided by EDI as part of the programme. The yearlong activities shall cover faculty and students of the participating colleges. Some activities, such as faculty development programmes, will be organised on the NIT campus.

G Kannabiran, professor of management, and R Murugesan, associate professor of humanities and social sciences of NIT Trichy will coordinate for the programme in the centre.

Alumni of NIT-T and IIT-Madras to conduct programme

Here is good news for bright rural students hailing from economically weaker sections of society and aspiring to realise their dream of pursuing medical education.

A trust has been formed by alumni of the country's premier institutions, the National Institute of Technology-Tiruchi (NIT-T) and IIT-Madras, to conduct a six-month full-time residential programme free of cost for 30 students, who have cleared the State Board examination in 2017 to crack NEET 2018.


Established by Prabu G. Kumar of NIT-T and R.V.S. Muralidhar of IIT-Madras and IIM-Kozhikode, with the objective of providing the students a level-playing field with their peers from affluent sections of society, Dr. Radhakrishnan Educational Trust will meet the entire cost of boarding, lodging and study materials, while Seekers Educational Services, with which the Trust has entered into a tie-up, will provide faculty and classrooms.

Criteria

The Trust will receive applications from students of government and government-aided schools with good marks: above 180 marks in medical cut-off or 1,100 marks out of 1,200. Students, who had appeared for NEET 2017 and scored minimum cut-off marks, will be given preference. A test and interview will be conducted if there are more applicants.

The course will be conducted from October to May next year for the selected students. They will undergo a rigorous coaching programme with about six hours of classes and three hours of tutorials per day for six days per week.

The course will be conducted in three terms of eight weeks each with one week break in between. In addition to NEET syllabus, students will also be trained in English, communication and computer skills. There will also be yoga, prayer and sports sessions every day.

The Trust will utilise a new building constructed by Dakshina Bharat Hindi Prachar Sabha at Thennur for lodging, boarding, tutorials, self-study and sports sessions. Classes will be conducted at the classrooms of Seekers close by.

Accomodation

Separate accommodation will be provided for boys and girls under the care of separate live-in male and female wardens with 24-hours security, and quality vegetarian diet.

The Trust can be contacted for application and additional information either by mail: dret.neet@gmail.com or by phone: 98948 99776 from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. - Monday to Saturday). Applicants can also visit the Dakshina Bharat Hindi Prachar Sabha premises in person.

Yi keen on broad-basing entrepreneurship promotion initiatives among students

Quote:
It has so far initiated YUVA, student chapter, in seven institutions in Tiruchi

The Young Indians of Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Tiruchi Zone, is looking forward to broad-basing its entrepreneurship promotion activities it has been conducting for college youth in the district.


Yi, Tiruchi, has so far initiated YUVA, student chapters, in seven institutions, and has been exposing the students to vital facets of entrepreneurship through YuTry - the annual entrepreneurship conference and start-up competitions, and Blue Ocean Dialogue, to train prospective entrepreneurs to think differently in order to come up with original business ideas, John Ashok Varadarajan, Chair, Yi Tiruchi Chapter, said.

Incubation centres

“Though there is no incubation apparatus in Tiruchi for arriving at prototypes of the business ideas unlike in Chennai and Coimbatore, the Yi has been trying to link those coming up with promising project plans to incubation centres and venture capitalists,” Mr. John Ashok said.

The Blue Ocean Dialogue was conducted last month to orient participants on product innovation and process re-engineering.

Successful entrepreneurs from Mumbai and other cities exposed them to the mentoring support systems and venture capital funding.

The objective of the Blue Ocean Dialogue was to get the students to identify unexplored white spaces in a market, and conceptualise a products or services they feel should be there but is non existent.

Subsequently, the students are given the basic skills to filter the ideas and put them to practice.

Promising entrepreneurs are also equipped to evaluate key certainties and uncertainties that will affect the success of the innovation being proposed, and exposed to key differentiators, key success factors and possible reasons for failure, Mr John Ashok said.

The key takeaways of the Blue Ocean Dialogue were elementary learning within the areas of business history, strategy, innovation, new product development, macro environment scanning, futurology and economics.

Likewise, the YuTry is being conducted as a platform for entrepreneurship-promotion and generation of start-up ideas.

Angel network funding and mentoring support is extended to good business models, he said.


One prospective entrepreneur was linked to the incubation centre run by IIM - Bangalore, for developing an idea into a prototype, Mr. John Ashok said.

Inculcating leadership skills in students

Over 120 students from colleges in and around Tiruchi are participating in the two-day camp

A two-day camp aimed at inculcating leadership skills among students was inaugurated at National College on Wednesday under the auspices of Palkhivala Foundation, Nani Palkhivala Arbitration Centre (NPAC), Chennai with speakers from the Mumbai-based Forum of Free Enterprise.

This is the first time that the camp is taking place outside Chennai, since its inception seven years ago.


“We get students from many disciplines for these workshops; but we realised that we could reach out to more children if we spread our work to smaller cities,” J. Durga Lakshmi, Registrar, NPAC, told The Hindu .

“Our workshops help students to identify the barriers that are keeping them from achieving their true potential, and show them ways to tackle them.”

Over 120 students from colleges in and around Tiruchi have registered for the camp this year.

Motivational speakers Rajiv Luv and Sachin Kamath briefed participants on topics such as goal-setting, time management, self-esteem and communication skills, in lively interactive sessions. Mr. Kamath started off his talk by highlighting the ‘prisoners’, ‘vacationers’ and ‘learners’ who populate a training programme. “It is important to be a learner who asks questions and shares information, because learning is not a one-dimensional process,” he said.

Mr. Luv talked about self-esteem and how one’s identity and perception is shaped by the expectations and evaluations of other people. “Confidence comes from our self-esteem. Everybody who comes into our life keeps sticking judgmental labels on us. The more labels you have, the less confidence you will have. If you take charge of your self-esteem, you can become an effective leader,” he said.

In his inaugural address, Justice F.M. Ibrahim Kalifulla, former judge, Supreme Court of India, said: “Leadership is needed not just in politics, but also in our daily life. Unless we learn to take charge of ourselves, we cannot progress to become role models for others.”


The camp will end on Friday.
