New Delhi: Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) has initiated a new trend. SRCC with a 100 per cent placements record is setting up first of its kind incubator to help the students set their own start-ups.
The top DU college is also going to change their policy to assist the students who want to set a start-up but if things don’t work out, they can opt for placements.
SRCC, famous for its track record of placements and high cut-offs is one of the leading art colleges of the country.
The trend in last few years has shown that the top firms are leaning towards the art students other than engineering and traditional technical course students.
The college has roped many of its alumni who have successfully set their start-ups and running it. They will help the college to set up this project.
With SRCC being a leading college, it is likely that soon, other colleges will also follow this. This will also contribute to the government’s Make in India campaign.
The one biggest profit of these start-ups is that the young talented students would be working in India itself than the corporations based overseas. This will boost the economy of India.
However, it is not easy at all to start something without the experience and that is why guidance becomes very necessary and this is where this initiative by SRCC, is an important step.
The rise of the internet and e-commerce also motivates a lot of young business people to set a start-up.
While, a lot of top firms come and offer lucrative packages to these freshers, but it also means that they for these firms and it sometimes takes away the scope for creativity and freedom and start-ups provide the chance where a young mind can give her ideas a form and build something constructive out of it.
SRCC’s idea to help students in setting their start-ups is a good start. India which has the biggest youth population in the world needs to capitalize on these numbers and it will happen when young mind bring out creative ideas along with the hard work. The hard work which they do for these firms will be much handy if it is done for their own ideas.
