New Delhi: Union Minister for Education and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship Dharmendra Pradhan launched a 3-year partnership ‘Education to Entrepreneurship: Empowering a generation of students, educators and entrepreneurs’ between Ministry of Education, Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship and Meta here on Monday.

Three Letters of Intent (LoIs) were exchanged between Meta and National Institute for Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development (NIESBUD), All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

Pradhan said that the new initiative is in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of making India skill capital of the world.

“Education to Entrepreneurship partnership is a game-changer which will take digital skilling to the grassroots. This will build capacities of our talent pool, seamlessly connect students, youth, workforce and micro-entrepreneurs, with futuristic technologies and transform our Amrit Peedhi into new-age problem solvers and entrepreneurs,” said Pradhan.

Minister of State for Electronics & Information Technology and Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Rajeev Chandrasekhar highlighted the Central government’s focus on preparing the youth and workforce to be equipped with the skills to succeed and play important roles in the evolving landscape of technology and global economy.

Nick Clegg, Meta president, Global Affairs, thanked Pradhan for his support in bringing together the partnership between two most important sectors of the workforce — education and skilling.

“India’s talent base and rapid digital adoption make it the perfect place for us to invest in emerging technologies,” Clegg said.

Having worked closely with India during its G20 Presidency in areas such as education, job creation, skill development and user safety, Clegg looked forward to Meta’s contribution in empowering India’s students, young people and entrepreneurs, with significant focus on skill development for Indian startups and businesses.

Under the partnership with NIESBUD, 5 lakh entrepreneurs will get access to digital marketing skills by Meta over the next 3 years. Budding and existing entrepreneurs will be trained in digital marketing skills using Meta platforms in 7 regional languages to begin with.
