It encourages them with entrepreneurial mindsets & skills by providing them high quality experiential entrepreneurial education, thus, enhancing their job prospects, encouraging intrapreneurship, driving long-term Entrepreneurship.
Being a global Foundation aiming towards carving the minds of a young entrepreneur with the required skill set or rather, say a mindset through philanthropy initiatives – through our Foundation & Advance courses, both online & offline to more than 10000 young entrepreneurs annually, is headquartered in Bangalore with more than 50% of our learners are from India.
We strongly believe that being entrepreneurial is a life skill.
At NEN we strive to build a strong ecosystem for these young minds, other than just educating students on entrepreneurship, we are also involved in many other initiatives like- finding them an internship, Training E leaders, Expert Mentor Talks sessions, access to the LearnWise portal, setting up the Incubators, Faculty development Programs, Real Venture mentoring, etc. which can bring out the best from our student.
