YouthNet in partnership with the government of Nagaland is set to establish the YouthNet Centre of Entrepreneurship and Employment (YCEE), which aims to establish entrepreneurship and enhance employability skills amongst youth in Nagaland.

YCEE’s chief mentor is Dr. Krishna Tanuku, executive director at the Wadhwani Center for Entrepreneurship Development, Indian School of Business.

A YouthNet press release stated that the first programme under YCEE titled “The Entrepreneur” would be launched August 28 next.

The program has been designed to target twenty young emerging entrepreneurs, who would be taught various business and entrepreneurial skills to help develop their businesses, it stated.

According to YouthNet, twenty participants would participate in a six-week course taught by some of the country’s most successful entrepreneurs and professional experts in the business field, where they would learn skills such as employee management, operations management, technology and business, marketing and  basic finance and accounting, to name a few.

The courses taught to the twenty participants would be designed according to the local business environment, and will be based on what will be applicable to the participants’ businesses.

Teaching these twenty participants will be connoisseurs in the business field such as Dr Rahul Mirchandani- Executive Director of Aries Argos Limited and a recipient of the Bharat Ratna Rajiv Gandhi Yuva Shakti Award; Dr. Navita Mahajan- a founder member of Leadership Assembly of Commonwealth Asia Alliance of Young Entrepreneurs; Rohan K Abraham- President of Pledgeback Advisory Services which works with grass roots organisations to improve people’s lives; and Hemant Nitturkar- the Project Development Officer, India for AVRDC- the World Vegetable Center, Taiwan.

At the end of the six weeks, all twenty plans would be assessed and the best plan would be awarded Rs.5 lakh to put towards their business. 

The idea of ‘The Entrepreneur’ is inspired by Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Entrepreneur and Member of Parliament who is also the program’s chief mentor and who has also funded the award money.

By launching initiatives that seek to promote entrepreneurship, YouthNet said it would not only help impart skills that would teach people to sustain their lives better, but also teach Naga youth to try and explore newer avenues to earn a living.
