Exclusive Live Projects at NextStartups by RisingIndia

RisingIndia’s invitation to join Sustainable Entrepreneurship Journey was well received by The Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs). IIMs are institutes of management education and research under the ownership of Ministry of Education, Government of India.
The establishment of IIMs was initiated by Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India with IIM Calcutta (the first IIM) and IIM Ahmedabad, based on the recommendation of the Planning Commission of India in 1961, which was renamed as Niti Aayog in 2014 by current Prime Minister Narendra Modi in whose tenure 7 new IIMs were opened between 2015-2016
IIMs were declared institutions of national importance by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) after the passage of Indian Institutes of Management Act, 2017. By this act, IIMs were given more autonomy in handling their day-to-day operations.

Currently IIM Jammu, IIM Bangalore and IIM Calcutta have collaborated for the Live Projects at Next startups by RisingIndia ThinkTank to nurture the bright students who are eager to contribute in the initiative which is thriving to accelerate growth of new ventures & develop Indian startup ecosystem specially in Tier II/III cities.

The young brains will also be opportune to unleash their entrepreneurial spirits as RisingIndia with it’s ventures will provide an opportunity to connect dots with opportunities towards leadership
We are elated with this credible association with IIMs and excited to nurture the next leaders to help them embark entrepreneurial journey and welcome Next leaders who have come together in RisingIndia.
