Catching them young, the Telangana Government will be introducing ‘Course Credits’ in Secondary education from the next academic year.

“We would like to encourage entrepreneurship quite early on. We will introduce Course Credits for students for taking part in certain programmes. These will add up as they move on to higher classes,” Telangana IT Minister K T Rama Rao has said.

Addressing a Nasscom meeting at the T-Hub here on Monday, he said the State would come up with an exclusive ‘Start-up Policy’ in the second week next month. “It will most probably happen around Valentine’s Day (February 14),” the Minister said.

Earlier, the State government signed an agreement with apex IT industry association Nasscom for setting up Start-up Ware house at the T-Hub. The government allotted 40 seats for the association for setting up its own incubator.

“We will mentor the start-ups and help them complete their project ideas at the Warehouse,” Nasscom Chairman B V R Mohan Reddy has said.

This is the fourth Warehouse started by Nasscom. “We are going to set up another five warehouses by the year end,” Nasscom President R Chandrasekhar has said.
