Young entrepreneurs gave innovative suggestions The youth associated with start-ups gave innovative suggestions during a discussion with Chief Minister Shri Chouhan. The youth told that they will participate in the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas programme and GIS. These events have created an atmosphere of enthusiasm among the youth. It is necessary to develop entrepreneurship among the youth. There should be a separate university for this. Chandigarh is such a university. Successful young entrepreneurs believe that subjects that can increase the spirit of entrepreneurship should be included in the college level education. Girl students should also get necessary guidance. Indore-like infrastructure can be made available to girl students coming from small towns and cities. Incubation centers should not be limited to cities, they should also be developed in villages. Rural youth should be linked with internship. Guidance should also be given to the students for selection of start-up according to their interest in class 11th and 12th. They should meet and interact with local businessmen and entrepreneurs during their studies. The youth should be skilled in how to interact and behave at the financial level. Young entrepreneurs said that it is necessary that skill parks should be opened at places other than Bhopal. Many youths of Madhya Pradesh are working in Hyderabad and Bangalore. If they get a favorable environment in Madhya Pradesh, they would like to stay here.
Children should be imparted training in industrial places. The concept of CM Rise Schools is commendable. Work should be done for the development of entrepreneurship in the social sector. The guidance of youth should be sought to solve basic problems of the country. It was also suggested that brand MP bags should reach every household. An initiative has been taken to sell goods useful to the farmers at grocery shops. Such efforts have been successful. In view of the increasing demand for organic food, its possibilities available in the state can be utilised. Shri Lokesh Sharma, Additional Chief Executive Officer of Atal Bihari Vajpayee Institute of Good Governance and Policy Analysis was in the discussion with the youth.
