At Udhyam Learning Foundation (Udhyam), Our vision is to “Co-create a caring world, where people fearlessly pursue their potential”
Udhyam Shiksha, works on developing entrepreneurial mindsets amongst youth, which would enable them to strive towards making full use of their potential. We are a high energy & open organisation.
Why is this role important at Udhyam?
Incubation is the next step of Shiksha’s entrepreneurial mindsets program where Young Learners (“YL”) with passion and interest for entrepreneurship are supported and mentored in their journey of building and growing businesses. The Incubation Program would be primarily for mass non tech businesses which do not require significant capital investment. The program will support our YLs in knowledge, skills and mindsets on how to start and grow businesses.
Udhyam has focused on Impact@Scale - and even with this role, we expect the Incubation programs to reach a large number of youth across India and create significant impact.
We are looking for a Lead Incubation to design and implement the Incubation Program across various geographies that Udhyam works in with YLs specifically in ITIs, colleges and schools.
