Scaling the Skills: Empowering a BillionPowered by



India targets creation of 500 million skilled workers by 2022. With the mega launch of the Prime Minister’s Skill India mission there seem opportunities to accelerate the industries by and large. But what does the road ahead look like? How can emerging businesses within this sector ride this wave?  What are these skills? Shortage of quality faculty, less private participation and shortage of funds are part of the challenges confronting the sector. How can players draw a sustainable and viable business model keeping in mind the existing problems and ever changing needs of the industry? How are entrepreneurs taping the niche opportunities & delivering scalable models?
