STARTUP EDGE (the Hands-On Business Challenge) is a transformational competition designed to inspire young people to become innovative entrepreneurs and take their ideas to the next level. Participants are taken through a three day journey in teams where they create startups and work on diverse ideas.
AFS India is an Outreach Partner for STARTUP where our aim is to provide this opportunity to AFS India Member Schools’ students which can help develop creative capacity, entrepreneurial confidence and acquire the necessary skills to build scalable start-ups that solve real problems as a part of teams.
AFS India Member School, Emerald Heights International School, Indore, conducted STARTUP EDGE from 14th to 16th July 2018. The program went very well and it was well-received by the students and educators.
Participants created their own startup based on design thinking and pitch it on the final day to the experts.
