Can You Solve Young India’s Problems?
The Indian youth suffers from unemployment and underemployment. According to a study India’s growth is not adding as many jobs as expected and 81% of all employed people are involved in the so called informal economy.
Simply talking about this will not help. Skill development is needed and entrepreneurship opportunities need to be created so that people don’t just make careers but also become employment generators.
Enabling Real India in the Internet Age
Thanks to cheap mobile data the internet is finally for everyone in India. Since we are the world’s second most populated nation there is a lot of excitement on what the internet will bring to the masses, especially those in tier 2, tier 3 and rural areas who consume content in regional languages. No wonder why CNN business declared that the future of the internet is Indian.
While content consumption in Indian languages is growing (Hindi content growing by 94% compared to a 19% growth in English) there is a dearth of good digital content available on the internet in regional languages.
We plan to bridge this gap by developing a career related platform in regional languages.
