The candidates trained were from diverse educational backgrounds and have chosen manufacturing and services sectors as their streams of activity. They were exposed to a real-life business scenario through simulations. They also had interactions with successful entrepreneurs.
The participants shared their experiences in the valedictory session.
Mehrul Khan, an aspiring entrepreneur said, “Initially I wanted this training programme to be over as soon as possible. But with each passing day I felt how important it was for me to attend this three-week EDP. Now I wish this training to extend by some more days.”
The candidates have registered for the Seed Capital Fund Scheme (SCFS), a key component of the State Government’s Sher-e-Kashmir Employment and Welfare Programme for Youth (SKEWPY), and Youth Start-Up Loan Scheme (YSLS) being implemented by JKEDI.
