A Non-Profit Initiative

Train Students in design thinking and doing to improve opportunities for employability and employment.

Because:

There has been a 200% increase in jobs seeking design thinking in a recent 3 year period.

But, there's a huge talent shortage in India. More than 63% of the companies report that they have a talent shortage, and top companies are looking forward to hiring students who are industry-ready

How can we help Students become Industry-Ready?
