" I can learn and grow. It is an excellent opportunity to interact with young adults and expand my worldview. I can get a perspective on issues and challenges we face today and brainstorm solutions. Work at the grassroots level to better understand issues and highlight pressing issues through articles and thoughtful posters beginning with my institution. I would also create a buzz around
Millennium Fellowship to attract the best socially committed talent. "

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.
