Day 1 @Adianta Cohort #2016; India’s key for development: Innovation and Startups
Let there be the big “aww” on the face of old generation saying that this new 12 months old venture can’t beat 24 years company and giants, but the current generation and the glucose for the economy of India will be these Startups. The Independence Day speech by nations’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi cheering for startup culture and innovation was backed by the reason. Innovation and the Startups are the keys to make India on the list of developed world that’s why the campaigns “Make In India” and “Start Up, Stand Up” come to serve their purpose as what we have observed from Make in China initiatives. The defense for the startup guys come from the success of Indian startups like Flipkart, Paytm, Redbus, Olacabs and many more.
So, here is my first day with Adianta School which I can say has justified that I am at a good place and have taken a right decision to start on what I want to do in the near future. It’s the orientation day filled with many interactive and learning sessions with Nita Soans, Aditya Dev Sood, Bihar Innovation Lab, StartUp Tunnel etc. There was a lot to take with the session with Nita as it focused on importance of social media, online presence and self-actuation, I was not on the time but I think I didn’t miss much of the subject. Then Aditya made us think on our own identity & self-actuation followed by a ball passing game and bringing a word or phrase related to Leadership and Responsibility with Bihar Innovation Lab team. Then we had a campus round with BIL guys showing their work to us which was backed by true research and innovation like ANM Kit for maternal and child care and health card etc, then Priyanka briefed about Startup tunnel and previous batch etc. Then post lunch we had a really interesting and enlightening session as we interacted with Amicus and Truelancer guys, they have developed very good products for the masses and I can say Adianta’s “learning by doing” approach has delivered very well here.
So, to sum up the things, Its great to come over here and getting to work and learn with likeminded and passionate people who are willing to create innovative products and solutions to the problems which will contribute to the India’s social and economic development. It is the best time for cohort 2016 to be part of this and take challenges and risks.
