With 21 % of its population in the age bracket of 10 to 19 years, India has the potential to create a workforce that will fuel its growth in this decade. Presently, this segment of the population is in elementary, secondary and senior secondary schools. On the other hand, in recent times numerous new and previously unheard of avenues for higher education and careers have come up. More than 600 courses in over 700 universities and 36,000 colleges in India have created ample opportunities for each student seeking a college admission. Admizzionz Campuz was started to assist students in making the most of these opportunities.
The CII Industrial Innovation Awards are the recognition and celebration of innovative Indian enterprises across industry segments. The awards for the start-ups are meant to applaud and reward innovative start-ups to take the next leap forward and serve as examples to inspire innovation. These awards are not limited to a few perceived hi-tech areas such as Internet or biotechnology, but extends to all sectors be it profit or non-profit, private or government, education or business, healthcare or agriculture, manufacturing or services.
