Innovative TV show Launched by Delhi Government for young entrepreneurs.

Delhi government launched the ‘Business Blasters’ programme, that will give students of classes 11 and 12 of schools an opportunity to present their start-up ideas to investors and obtain investment capital to take them to the next level. The government aims to bring a revolution in education as it provides a launchpad for students’ business ideas and encourages confidence and a problem-solving mindset among them, which will benefit India’s economy in the future.

‘Business Blasters’ is a practical component of the Entrepreneur Mindset Curriculum (EMC) for classes 11 and 12 and has been designed to provide students of Delhi government schools the experience of working in teams, brainstorming and identifying social challenges or business opportunities, preparing business plans and implementing their ideas in their neighbourhoods. All participating students will receive Rs 2,000 each as seed money. The teams will use this seed money to either earn profit or create social impact. The students whose ideas are shortlisted will be given an opportunity to present their ideas to the judges, who are highly successful in their fields of work.
