Technopreneur- Reaching out Beyond Technology

Usually when it comes to entrepreneurship, students from the field of technology/engineering either lag behind or end up making a totally commercial venture(like Google or Facebook). However, as lame or as un-practical it may seem the technological graduates in today’s India hardly are interested in anything beyond placements or a green card of the United States. Moreover, what bugs people “with dreams” is that only of handful of them really end up creating jobs while the majority ends up working (like graduates from all other fields). Agreed, that even the engineers need to work for some corporation or people, BUT the government didn’t spend billions of Rupees in developing infrastructure and training them at subsidised costs so that they end up as “easy meat” for MNC’s(who’ll eventually brainwash them). So what is expected of them????


Yup…..the idea may sound a little too ideal and a lot far fetched for anyone. But hey, calling India as “The superpower in making” isn’t going to help at all.

So, yes I guess its time that the people in India’s elite engineering colleges break out of their laptop facing rooms and stare into the REAL WORLD, where CHANGE is possible through TECHNOLGY.
