Bridging the gap
Did you know that 13.74% of the population in Telangana lives below the poverty line? This means that 1million people in the state earn a livelihood of less than Rs900 per month. 10 years ago, this figure was double. Social change initiatives like microcredit schemes and self-help groups enabled rural entrepreneurship and helped a million people climb out of poverty. This is the potential of an entrepreneurial idea that aims to solve a social problem. The first step in discovering and implementing such ideas is understanding the problem. Through this menternship, you can investigate a socio-economic issue in your city and design a solution to eliminate it.

Meet Our Certified Menterns
It was amazing! I learnt so many things like creating engagement on social media platforms. The 1:1 with mentors were super helpful. I learnt how to create Instagram ads, identify goals & do competitor analysis- so many things.
There was a lot of interactive sessions with Mentors. The Menternship I completed gave me a new perspective to how work has to be done. I truly enjoyed working with real figures & actual industry case studies. 
My experience was great as I got a chance to explore subjects like Analytics which are difficult to look for. The Menternship allowed to get subject knowledge and see what goes behind the making and delivering of a product.
My experience was very useful as I learnt so much about Fleet Management & Digital Marketing connected to the real-world scenario. I learnt how to actually work with social media channels like IG & Facebook.
