iStart Rajasthan’s new initiative is a step further to encourage the youth to take up entrepreneurship with confidence

iStart Rajasthan, the flagship startup initiative of the Rajasthan government, recently launched the iStart Launchpad and a Learning Management System (LMS) in collaboration with the Thapar Entrepreneurs Academy (TEA). The initiative aims to foster entrepreneurship within the state and empower students with a comprehensive digital education platform to nurture entrepreneurial spirit. 

Hosted on August 24 at Jaipur’s Techno Hub, the launch event was graced by Namita Thapar, an angel investor and the executive director of Emcure Pharmaceuticals. She is also the founder of TEA, an organisation committed to fostering entrepreneurship among youth.

“The online learning platform is self-paced and very interactive. Students can play quizzes and watch videos on the platform. We are also training coordinators to help them learn how to create their business pitches and make prototypes,” said Thapar, while emphasising that early years are critical for developing an entrepreneurial mindset. 

The event saw participation from over 100 startup founders, stakeholders from educational institutions and government officials.

Promoting Entrepreneurship Among Youth

The iStart x TEA LMS portal was inaugurated by chief guest Thapar and Tapan Kumar, System Analyst (JT Dir.) at DoIT&C (The Department of Information Technology & Communication, Rajasthan). 

With an aim to nurture young minds and help them achieve high-end goals, LMS is a free-to-use tool that offers students essential resources for fostering creativity and embarking on entrepreneurial journeys. From informative sessions to hands-on workshops, the LMS aims to provide a holistic learning experience to students.

“Entrepreneurship needs to be celebrated and supported more in India. We, at TEA, are looking forward to partnering with iStart to foster an entrepreneurial mindset among school students through Launchpads in all districts in Rajasthan,” said Thapar.

The event also included an interactive session led by Thapar, focusing on startup success stories, challenges, and opportunities in today’s competitive market.

The launch of the iStart x TEA LMS is a significant development for the startup ecosystem in Rajasthan. The state is already home to over 3,500 registered startups, and this step can further motivate young individuals to confidently take the entrepreneurial plunge.
