About Udhyam: 

At Udhyam Learning Foundation (Udhyam), our vision is to “Co-create a caring world, where people fearlessly pursue their potential.” We believe that building entrepreneurial mindsets and fostering entrepreneurship are powerful means to harness an individual’s potential. Entrepreneurship enables agency and allows an individual to work on their strengths while creating value for the world.

The goal for Udhyam is to build a thriving and supportive ecosystem, where every individual feels empowered to define their own path.

About Entrepreneurial Mindset Program (Schools & ITIs):

At Udhyam we believe in the 3 key learning principles namely Student Autonomy, “Learning by Doing” and “Real world experience’ . What better way to build entrepreneurial mindsets than trying real world  innovation projects hands-on?

Our Entrepreneurial Mindset Development program was rolled out successfully across Andhra Pradesh, reaching 26 districts and 4,500 plus schools this year. The program was focused on enabling the development of Entrepreneurial Mindsets of students through a curriculum which was experiential and Project based.  The program was integrated into the school timetables and enabled through teachers within each school. Over the course of this Project based curriculum, the students worked in teams, received inputs for identifying societal problems that they would like to solve, and with a support system developed their ideas into viable prototype solutions.
