NSDC has collaborated with deAsra Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation, for capacitating training providers with sustained entrepreneurship development of the trainees. The collaboration would support the establishment of ‘Entrepreneurship Support Program’, which is intended to equip placement cells of training providers with self-employment/ entrepreneurial assistance for the skilled candidates.
The association would facilitate training of counsellors/ trainers/facilitators (termed as ‘Udyog Mitras’) of the envisioned Entrepreneurial Cell, who will handhold skill trainees to nurture their entrepreneurial action plan. This would include various aspects of developing a business model, seeking financial guidance, availing services of banks/ agencies for loans and other statutory requirements. The counselling provided by these Udyog Mitras is proposed to help aspirants in exploring new avenues and facilitating financial support for enhancing employability.
