2018 marked a year full of new ventures for Bosco Institute Jorhat. We piloted our plans of incubating young Social Entrepreneurs of North East India in collaboration with Dhriiti-The Courage Within and with support from Childaid Network.
YOU Start! NE – Enterprise Acceleration Programme for Youth Entrepreneurs – is an initiative dedicated to promoting youth entrepreneurship in North East India. After receiving approximately 100 application from states covering Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura and Manipur, we shortlisted and trained 52 young entrepreneurs from this region in 3 different cities i.e. Shillong, Guwahati and Dimapur. This was followed by mentoring support to each of the trained entrepreneurs to enable them to develop robust enterprise plans, providing them with a solid foundation to sustain and grow their enterprises. 11 entrepreneurs were selected after the Ist round of Business Plan competition. This was followed by 12 weeks of mentoring support to accelerate their businesses. The programme has come to a successful end with the selection of 3 awardees on 21st October. #entrepreneurship #training #businessplanning #incubators
