Our Bureau Hyderabad | Updated on January 12, 2018 Published on May 30, 2017

The TiE-Hyderabad and Woxsen School of Business have jointly launched an entrepreneurship development programme for start-ups.

The programme will give start-up entrepreneurs an opportunity to connect with each other and improve their entrepreneurship skills.

​Under the program​me, 20 start-ups will be chosen and taken through a rigorous six-day workshop. It includes knowledge sharing sessions by the faculty of Woxsen School of Business and seasoned entrepreneurs and captains of industries from diverse sectors.

​​There is no age criteria for the programme that will be held on July 14-16 and July 28-30. The deadline for applications is June 20, 2017.

"TiE Woxsen Entrepreneurship Development programme’s specially designed syllabus and structure work as a backbone for start-ups when it's most required”, Veen Pula, Chairman, Woxsen School of Business, said in a release issued here on Tuesday.

“Today’s start-up trend tells that many start-ups are not seeing the light of the day as the mortality rate is increasing. This can be caused by many factors. The most important one being preparedness of the start-up founder which needs to be continuously nurtured. This programme is one step towards this,” Pradeep Mittal, President, TiE Hyderabad, said.

A recently released industry study revealed that only one in 10 start-ups manage to survive for more than five years due to entrepreneur’s lack of ability to solve multiple testing factors in the entrepreneurship cycle.

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance.
