On August 3, TiE Delhi-NCR organized a grand convocation ceremony for budding student entrepreneurs at the American Center in association with Nexus. Conrad Turner, Counsellor for Cultural Affairs, U.S. Embassy, New Delhi was present as the guest of honor. The winning teams of the regional finals were felicitated along with other participants. The top 3 teams were Phoolvari (a startup providing support for gardening), Zap-E-Scrap (a startup aimed at effective management and safe disposal of e-waste) and Senior Saathi (a tool to manage health of elderly and incapacitated population who are unable to move and need constant care).
The overarching goal of TYE is to train driven high school students and foster entrepreneurial skills among them. It encourages young students to brainstorm ideas and turn them into lucrative business models. By recognizing potential and offering support in terms of mentorship and finances, TYE is facilitating a vibrant startup ecosystem in India.
Nexus will continue to play an active role as an entrepreneurial ecosystem enabler by bringing together different stakeholders for development and mentoring of the startup ecosystem.
