Clever Harvey Collaborates with Multiply Ventures to Launch Entrepreneurship Course for High School Teens – Punekar News
India, March 2, 2022: To give teenagers an early glimpse into future careers, Clever Harvey has collaborated with Multiply Ventures to launch a new industry-certified course, “JuniorMBA Entrepreneurship”, specifically for secondary school students (Classes VIII to XII).
The 15-day program aims to provide students with hands-on exposure to what startup founders do while learning how to create Shark Tank-style business presentations. Working in groups of two or three, students take a “behind the scenes” tour of one of the most challenging functions of business: entrepreneurship, guided by a Clever Harvey facilitator. By learning to develop business strategies with step-by-step guidance, students develop a solid foundation in business acumen and critical thinking.
Speaking at the launch of the new programme, Sriram Subramanian, co-founder of Clever Harvey, said: “With the introduction of the new education policy, the entrepreneurship and India’s burgeoning start-up culture makes it important for students to understand what goes into being an entrepreneur.The newly launched program teaches students how to start a business while reflecting on concepts such as value proposition, business models, revenue streams, business costs and scaling challenges. They then apply these concepts to present their own business plans. We are delighted to welcome Multiply Ventures as a as a partner in creating this new category of experiential career discovery. A team of former founders who created and scaled brands like Myntra, Flipkart and PayTm now serve as inve writers. Their contributions are invaluable for aspiring entrepreneurs – teenagers or adults.
“You would think that an entrepreneurship program is for those who want to start businesses. But did you know that 65% of the professions that will exist in 2030 have not yet been invented? So how do you prepare the younger generation for this world? There is a distinct need for an entrepreneurial skill set, regardless of career choice in today’s ever-changing business environment. Critical thinking, influencing skills and business acumen are key skills needed to be successful in any career they choose to pursue,” he added.
Commenting on the launch, Raveen Sastry, Founder of Multiply Ventures, said, “We are delighted to have partnered with Clever Harvey to teach entrepreneurial skills at the secondary level. Students will benefit from building a broader problem-solving mindset to understand people’s needs and develop solutions. Additionally, it will be interesting to see how students develop ideas and develop solutions to turn them into viable and scalable business plans. We are excited to see teen start-ups emerging from this program. »
