Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Tuesday that the Delhi government’s Entrepreneurial Mindset (EMC) curriculum aims to empower children to harness their talents and realize their dreams. Sisodia was speaking at one of EMC’s live entrepreneurship interactions.
“We began the Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum for children in 9th-12th grades to build an entrepreneurial acumen in children. One of the most important components under EMC is the Seed Money Project for students in 11th-12th grades,” Mr. Sisodia was quoted as saying in a statement.
“The Seed Money project will kickstart the journey of our children, help in developing their business acumen, and make them young entrepreneurs contributing to the nation. It aims to empower children to harness their talents and fulfill their dreams,” the education minister said.
The virtual session also saw Ritesh Agarwal, founder of OYO Rooms, interacting with students from Delhi Government Schools. Sharing his journey in creating the hotel chain, Mr. Agarwal said, “I started early and knew I wanted to do something on my own. I started early by identifying the problem and looking for practical and scalable solutions. Hard work and perseverance really are. The only way to create something and I was I know I have to keep trying.”
Ritesh Agarwal also shared some tips on entrepreneurship with the students.
“The most important consideration while starting something new is to recognize that problem-solving can only be done involving the people around you, your stakeholders, and community.
“Finally, I would tell all children to persevere, there is always light at the end of the tunnel, just keep on digging, take every opportunity possible and make the most of it. Highs and lows will always be there, remember why you started what you did,” Mr. Agarwal said.
Direct Entrepreneurship Interaction under the Delhi Government Entrepreneurial Mindset Curriculum aims to attract entrepreneurs from various sectors to interact with Delhi Government Schools students and share their challenges and milestones while setting up new businesses.
