iB Hubs initiated nationwide drive ‘Power To India’ to skill youth in entrepreneurship


The undeniable impact of entrepreneurship and emerging technologies might be the next biggest force that will completely transform the world. Taking firm steps to empower the youth in these domains, iB Hubs, a PAN-India startup hub, has initiated ‘Power To India’, a series of capacity building workshops on entrepreneurship and emerging technologies across the nation. Having conducted over 35 workshops of the 100 planned in 3 modal states – Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, the initiative has already trained over 5000+ youngsters.

Power To India workshops primarily guide the youth in shaping their mindset and emphasize on  thinking about solutions rather than debating problems. Deeper insights into entrepreneurship and emerging technologies like Internet of Things, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Data Analytics and Cyber Security help broaden their perspectives and career opportunities.

Entrepreneurial activities like ‘Idea Generation and Validation’ spark their creative problem-solving skills. Students learn about the the importance of entrepreneurial mindset and understand why it’s so essential to look at problems as opportunities.

Talking about the initiative, Mr Shiva Shanker, Program Director & alumnus of NITK Surathkal, said that everyone at iB Hubs strongly believes in the huge potential of Indian youth and under the right guidance, they can solve our country’s major problems through technology and drive the nation forward. He expressed that iB Hubs is taking ‘Power To India’ nationwide, exposing thousands of students to entrepreneurship and emerging technologies.

The college officials held a common response that initiatives like Power To India are very important for developing our youth and that they were happy to support them in taking the cause forward. Impressed by the kind of impact Power To India created on youngsters, the college officials were very supportive and encouraging in taking the cause forward.

iB Hubs foresees to organise several such workshops under the initiative ‘POWER TO INDIA’ throughout the country to unlock the hidden potential in youth and enable them with the right kind of guidance and opportunities! Let’s look forward to a transformed India, as iB Hubs takes this initiative nationwide and inspires thousands of youth to act on their dreams!
