Business Blasters is an initiative started by the Delhi government which aims to encourage an entrepreneurial mindset among students. In this, students of Classes 11 and 12 participate and pitch business ideas and the government helps them shape their ideas. The initiative was later accompanied by a TV program and was aired on YouTube as well.
A total of 51,000 business ideas were proposed by a total of 3 lakh students from Classes 11 and 12 who participated in the initiative. Out of these 3 lakh students, only 126 succeeded and got investor funding. The Delhi government will now be supporting these students in their careers ahead.
Starting from next year, 2023, Delhi government will also be expanding Business Blasters to private schools in the national capital to include entrepreneurial mindset in their curricula as well.
