India’s working age population is expected to grow exponentially in the next ten years. Current jobs provided by the industry sector will not be able to fulfil the requirements of the burgeoning people in the working age group. The problems in the rural areas will be two fold with lack of jobs for the rural people and lack of ‘job ready’ (skilled labour) people for the jobs that are available. There is a dire need for building entrepreneurs in India, as India lags behind in job creation to the extent that the only way forward is to create entrepreneurs who in turn will create more jobs.
In this session speakers will discuss how skill building and entrepreneurship can solve the problems of labour markets in India, and what are the innovative approaches to skilling and entrepreneurship.
- Importance of social investors in supporting skills and entrepreneurship in India
- Innovative approaches to skilling for livelihoods
- Challenges in scaling up social enterprises
