The economy of the 21st Century is a knowledge economy.
In last 2 decades, our world and our life has changed dramatically by innovation in technology. Starting with computer adoption in early 90’s and then with the internet penetration, use of technology has become the backbone of the growth. The pace of technology change is already pushing the demand for newer skill sets and job roles.
We have seen in recent times how smart homes, healthcare, 3D printing, on demand food services, app based banking, taxi services like OLA and UBER, hospitality services like Air-BNB, OYO have completely disrupted the landscape of traditional businesses.
The coming decade will define the largest workforce transition in the history of mankind. Millions of new jobs are being created in this technology space. Technology literacy, creative mindset and strong analytical skills will have a significant advantage when applying for jobs across virtually all the industries.
Today, unfortunately, the education sector has not been in the forefront of adopting latest technologies.
The new skills that top the demand list are Problem solving, Critical Thinking, Creativity, Adaptability and Flexibility. Which Degree, Diploma or School education is teaching these skills?
In contrast, Indian engineers and innovators are CEO’s and founders in Silicon Valley of almost every big company. They have played a significant role in building the knowledge economy and created more than trillion-dollar wealth in the global economy in only the last decade.
If Indians are innovating outside and scaling up the global economy, then why it is not possible here in India? This fact has triggered our mission to nurture Indian talent, shape it’s creative mindset to solve our real-life problems by using latest technology.
