Testimonials entrepreneurial

“I feel this (TYE program) is a real life lesson, which helps broaden the outlook significantly and I would recommend it to kids and their parents to consider seriously. It really enhances their outlook and strengthens the foundation.

From learning simple things like to research the Internet, take initiative, carry a reluctant team member forward, share rewards, and look at competition, they were exposed to complex issues like do home to home or phone surveys for their projects, sharpened computer skills on PowerPoint, word or Excel and understand what it takes to build an organisation, merits and demerits of how organisations operate.” AnkulLal (Father)  PayalLal   TYE 2010 and AnmolLal TYE 2011
