Why Does This Matter?

IfDE is trying to address the gap that traditional education approach cannot cope up with. The future of entrepreneurial space will have challenges
Why next generation of employees are likely to fail due to traditional Education System?
Reports from HRD ministry as of 2018 state that 1.5 million engineers graduate and enter into the job market every year. While the global needs for talent are changing and the workplace is constantly under flux, it is extremely difficult for educational institutions to catch up, being locked in legacy structures, missions and curricula. Thousands of graduates are exiting the college funnel every year to end up in the unemployment pool. Meanwhile, CEO’s and HR heads of big companies and startups alike are struggling to find the right talent.
Reason behind 90% of startups failing within the first 5 years of operation?

Globally, 60% of youth want to start their own business but according to IBM Oxford study 90% of startups fail within the first 5 years of operation. Since 2015, as many as 1,503 startups have closed down in India. The major reason for startup failure is due to the replication of Western business models and lack of skills and capabilities related to Problem Solving Approach, Business Acumen, Strategic Foresight, Understanding User behaviour and Empathy, Personality & Team and Innovative Mindset. Other reasons cited for failure include lack of
skilled workforce and funding, inadequate formal mentoring and poor business ethics, according to the study.”
