We need to ensure that the growing number of start-ups are capable of not just surviving but truly thriving
As we saw at the recently concluded Tata First Dot student start-up showcase, ever more students are practising being entrepreneurs today. Some are doing this within the safety of campus companies and others are setting out by starting their own firms. Increasing numbers of students are also choosing to intern at start-ups or even make their first job at a start-up. All of which is great news. The students get to build life skills hands-on and learn first-hand what being an entrepreneur means and the nation benefits too.
