The 21st century is the world of technology and innovation leading change that rests on the foundational pillar of entrepreneurship. In a rapidly changing world, where the old order is replaced with new technology, systems, and process, startups are seen as a panacea for employment and growth. No wonder, policymakers across the world acknowledged the role of entrepreneurialism in the development and growth of nations and have vigorously pushed the cause of startups and entrepreneurship.
In India, this is manifested in policy initiatives like Startup India, Make in India, and Atma Nirbhar Bharat. Leading educationists have asked a pertinent question about how the education system prepares children to face the future? The Education Ministry embedded these initiatives in the New Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020) where financial and digital literacy, innovation, and entrepreneurship have been conceptualized as important components of school education.
In this pursuit of the goal of preparing future leaders, ThinkStartup has partnered with Global Knowledge Foundation to bring the Global Entrepreneurship Olympiad (GEO).
