The recently launched SV.CO, the digital makeover of Start-up Village, has planned to launch a free online course on all aspects of entrepreneurship on August 15. The course is aimed at bringing the best start-up industry practices to engineering students for building world-class start-ups.
Building on the knowledge acquired from mentoring startups, SV.CO has emerged as a perfect online learning platform for first-time founders and engaged in building an online University for student founders. SV.CO is the first learning platform for entrepreneurship that verifies results & rewards founders with a real degree by partnering with recognized Universities.
Students can register online at www.sv.co/startincollege for the free course that will be launched on August 15. The online registration will be absolutely free. Students in any year can take the course. To create high quality start-ups from campuses, SV.CO has also designed a highly competitive and intensive six-month Silicon Valley Programme for ambitious students to build a real product and launch it to customers while in college. Being online allows the digital incubator to increase its capacity to provide online courses to five million students in 3,500 engineering colleges across the country on the skills required to set up an enterprise straight from colleges.
The Silicon Valley course structure is different from mainstream education as only teams are accepted; there are no textbooks to learn from or any exams to write. SV.CO can take up to 100 Teams to Silicon Valley in its first year.
Start-up Village is aimed at fostering entrepreneurship and promoting innovation by creating an ecosystem that is conducive for the growth of Indian startups with a slew of incentives. Startup Village is best known for the inclusive public-private partnership incubator based in Kochi that has won numerous awards and created stellar startups. The incubator was started in April 2012 as a joint partnership with the Government of India through the Department of Science and Technology, Technopark TBI and our host-institute, MobME Wireless.
Billed as Phase 2 of Kochi-based Startup Village that was set up in 2012, the digital incubator is likely to provide global exposure to Silicon Valley and as a result tremendously enhance confidence of our youth that they can build truly global Indians in the near future.
