Hyderabad: Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU) joined hands with the Consulate General of the US and The Indus Entrepreneurs to hold a day-long workshop on ‘Education to Entrepreneurship’ on Friday.
About 500 candidates, including 25 madarsa graduates (religious schools), from 19 States are expected to participate in the event.
Zafar Sareshwala, Chancellor, MANUU, on Thursday said, “Boys and girls attending the workshop are from underprivileged backgrounds and they need exposure to the opportunities available in the country. The workshop will provide impetus to enterprising candidates and may give the country a few more entrepreneurs.”
Sareshwala said at least 10 per cent of the participants would be from MANUU. “We will play the role of a catalyst and be telling the participants how they could translate their ideas into profitable ventures,” he said.
Gabriel Hons-Oliver, Public Affairs Officer at the US Consulate General in Hyderabad, said the workshop would be a warming up exercise for the Global Entrepreneurship Summit scheduled in the city from November 28 to 30. Sreedevi Devireddy, Executive Director, TIE and others were also present.
