Anuna Education, a partner of National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), with a mandate to train over 1.1 lakh students, announced today the launch of their eEntreprenuership Program in collaboration with eBay India.
Entrepreneurs & Small Businesses are the back-bone of any growing economy. From the days of the silk-route, India has had its fair share of entrepreneurs from all walks of life. Today the market growth is shifting towards Rural and Small Towns, with new global business opportunities being made available through Web & eCommerce technologies. There are growing examples of new home-based entrepreneurs, retailers, wholesalers & manufactures who are finding new avenues of growth through eCommerce.
“Anuna Education is committed to infusing international grade ‘Managerial & Entrepreneurial Skills’ in the Indian Skill Development landscape,” said, Mr. Amit Iqbal Srivastava, CEO & Founder, Anuna Education. “We are happy to find a partner like eBay India who are helping us teach eCommerce in a more practical sense than ever attempted before,” he further added.
“The Modi Government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative, along with, creation of a separate Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, all point to the fact that India needs more young entrepreneurs to drive the economy,” said Mrs. Ruby Srivastava, COO Anuna Education. “Our program is custom designed to train, fund and incubate first generation, as well as, family business entrepreneurs and help them reach their potential,” she added.
Anuna Education’s eEntreprenuership program, certified under NSDC & MSME is offered as a six month fast track & 1 year extended course. As part of the program, AnunaEducation will train budding entrepreneur to sell their products on eBay globally in collaboration with eBay India. Practical training will also be given to entrepreneurs on how to sell their products to global buyers.
Hon. State Minister, Shri Arvind Kumar Singh Gope, launched the program in the state of Uttar Pradesh and said, “The great state of Uttar Pradesh has inherent entrepreneurship in its people. We need more companies like Anuna Education & eBay India to come together to foster an eco-system which is inherent to the growth of entrepreneurship in the state. The state government is already committed to the skill development eco system and now people will have additional venues to become self-employed.”
Hon. State Minister further stated “Many people are reluctant to start their own businesses especially in the online space due to lack of know-how, guidance mentors, & funding. I am glad to see that Anuna Education & eBay India have taken care of all these points while designing this program.”
Mr. Navin Mistry, Head Retail Export & Lifestyle Categories for eBay India, said, “eBay India has enabled businesses for over 65,000 merchants of all sizes and it has been our constant endeavor to expand the seller base. However, the widening skill gap would become an impediment to the growth of the ecommerce industry. We hope that through our partnership with Anuna Education and the eEntreprenuership program will not only build an employable workforce, but will also contribute towards the ’Make in India’ campaign.”
“According to the eBay India Online Business Index, the online domestic entrepreneurs employ an average of 4.8 full time staff & 1.6 part time staff. This is projected to increase to 5.2 full time staff & 2.1 part time staff. The eEntreprenuership program will help to bridge this gap as well,” added Mr. Mistry
