Youth eyeing at start-ups – Sri Kumar Krishna


Kollegal, October 10, 2018: “Earlier, the youth in our country used to start hunting for jobs as soon as they completed their graduation. But, today the situation has changed. More and more educated and talented youth are making efforts to create jobs by themselves as a result of the ‘Start-up India’ programme of Govt. of India,” opined Sri Kumar Krishna, Proprietor of A.P.S. Textiles and Jewellers, Kollegal.

He addressed the students at a workshop on ‘Start-up India’, held at the JSS Women’s College, in Kollegal, organised by the Post Graduate Department of the college, on October 6, 2018.

“Instead of finding jobs, today’s youth, especially the graduates are intending to become entrepreneurs, by establishing start-ups. Today in India, 3-4 start-ups are being established every day on an average and thus strengthening the start-up sector. The government is also supporting them. You should also try to gain more knowledge about it and brighten up your future,” he advised.

In his presidential address Prof. R. M. Chinatamani, Director (Retd.) Department of PG Studies said, “The government of India has introduced the ‘Start-up India’ and ‘Stand-up India’ programmes with an objective of utilizing the creativity and talent of the youth of this country to empower the economy. The effort of the JSS Women’s College, Kollegal, in organizing this workshop to enlighten the students is appreciable,” he said.
