Indore: The Indore Smart Seed Incubation Centre on Wednesday signed a MoU with Sri Aurobindo Institute of Technology, Indore, to encourage students from the institute to start startups. Smart Seed is currently supporting around 11 startups from the incubation centre at AICTSL office.
The MoU was signed by the Smart City CEO Rishav Gupta in the presence of collector Manish Singh, municipal commissioner Pratibha Pal, Aditya Vyas from CIIE.CO and Dr Durgesh Mishra from Aurobindo Institute of Technology and others.
Smart Seed officials said that as a part of this MoU, they will conduct a seminar on How to Start a Startup in the college for interested students. Apart from this, knowledge sessions and workshops will be conducted on Business Model Development, Lean Startup, Fundraising and Industry Connects will be provided to selected students across a 4-month period. The aim of the programme is to follow the mission of PM Modi in creating Aatm Nirbhar Bharat so that students of today can become job providers instead of job seekers.
