Rajagiri School of Engineering & Technology | Kochi, India | Advancing SDG 8 & UNAI 2
" Millennium Fellowship is the way for me to reach out to interested students who would like to devote their lives selflessly for the betterment of society. Even though the desire to better the lives of others does influence us, we are not able to work on it due to the lack of support, appreciation, funding etc. SOCIAL’21 intends to provide mentorship, networking, and fundraising opportunities for social entrepreneurs. We intend to reach out to those who are working on their projects and to provide the best projects with an opportunity to widen their impact, secure mentorship and form a strong network of like-minded social entrepreneurs who can work jointly to improve the masses. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: SOCIAL- Student Open Collaborative for Innovative Applications
Our project SOCIAL, aims at creating employers rather than employees; by motivating and providing a support system to students with innovative ideas to bring out and try out their ideas. We connect them to the right resources and expertise, thus creating an enabling environment for ideas and students to grow and develop. We aim to achieve this goal through a Product Pitch Competition with emphasis on products which solve problems faced by the society at large. SOCIAL is organized in association with RSET IEDC (Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre), which is an entrepreneurship club under the Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM). KSUM is the central agency of the Government of Kerala for entrepreneurship development and incubation activities in Kerala, India. The SDG of our project SOCIAL is (8) Decent Work and Economic Growth & (9) Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure.
