Kerala has been promoting the entrepreneurial culture among the young generation for the last couple of years. The Start up initiatives has been implemented in the State long back much before the Start up Policies were announced by Government of India. The most talented youth of Kerala have been leaving the State in pursuit of better career options, and many of them have become successful entrepreneurs outside the State. This loss is irreparable in a Knowledge Economy where people and ideas are more important than land or capital. To realize the true potential of Kerala, this ‘brain drain’ needs to be reversed. By smoothly integrating the technological and creative skills of youth to solve the contemporary problems, the State aspires to kick-start an entrepreneurial culture, which contributes to increased knowledge, wealth and employment. Government’s endeavour is to build an entrepreneurial society in Kerala with a single consciousness by leveraging technology in bridging the gaps between different layers of the society, with a pro-active sense of social responsibility.
Young Entrepreneurs Summit (YES) is aimed at instilling entrepreneurship in the minds of students and youth of Kerala. This novel venture by Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation (KSIDC) under the aegis of Industries Department, aims to establish God’s Own Country as a vibrant destination of Start-up Entrepreneurs. The summit will provide the ideal platform for prospective young / student innovators in the state to interact with successful Start-Ups, Venture Capitalists, Mentors in specific core competent sectors from across the country.
