THANJAVUR:Skill development and Entrepreneurship should move together, said K P Krishnan, Secretary, Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India.

Speaking at SASTRA University on Monday after launching the Project Revere (Rural Empowerment through Vocational and Entrepreneurially Reliant Ecosystem), a SASTRA-TATA Trust joint initiative, he said the new government set up the Ministry and during the last two and half years three major initiatives were taken.

The first of this initiative was the National Skill Qualifications Frame work. The second would be on ITI and Polytechnic side while the third would be on Entrepreneurship side, he added.
S Ramadorai, Chairman, Tata Institute of Social Sciences said innovation of the future would be not how much I could do alone but how one could connect to the world. “This connection and network at a corporate entity like TCS means creating  a network comprising the company, its customers, venture capitalists, start-ups, academic institutions, industry bodies and alliance partners to create an ecosystem to collaborate, add value and go to market.” The event also saw awards being presented to brilliant students.
