Start-up Massive Open Online Course (MOOC ): Six ways

Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the nation "Start-up India, Stand-up India” from the Red Fort on 15th August 2015. GTU has contributed to this appeal significantly through its Student Start-up activities and allied interventions catering to nearly half a million students across 450 colleges. Gujarat Technological University (GTU) and Start-up Village together are now launching the country’s largest Student Start-Up literacy program through Massive Open Online Course (MOOC): “Six ways: Introduction to Student Start-ups”

This will probably be India’s largest MOOC start-up aspirants wherein students will learn how students across countries have done inspiring efforts and created technology innovation driven start-ups right in their colleges. This free but highly relevant program for students will make them aware about nuances of making a technology start-up primarily based on the innovative final year projects which they do every year. This course will also inspire students to become job creators and contribute significantly to economy and employment generation.

This program will help in understanding the fact that, if they start-up early they can benefit through various ways like: a) Get funded b) Join a start-up accelerator c) Get acqui-hired d) Become self sustainable e) Get a job f) Go for higher education. Start-up village is hosting this online program exclusively for GTU students. While the program will be mandatory for all 3rd Semester students under MOOC program of 100 activity points it can be availed to all other students from other semesters too.
