Business Idea Contest
BYST organizes events to address entrepreneurship options for underprivileged youth in partnership with stakeholders for promoting youth entrepreneurship. BYST has also been the forerunner in conducting first ever Business Ideas Contest for underprivileged youth in the urban and rural areas in different parts of India. These contests evoked tremendous response and have proved to be an effective tool in kindling entrepreneurship among the Youth.
As a result, of the awareness generated, prospective entrepreneurs and those skilled under various governments sponsor schemes approach BYST with their business ideas. The well trained, BYST field officers, with a professionally trained background, counsel the young people. Some of the young people may not fall under the BYST criteria. These young people are sign-posted to financial institutions and other voluntary organisations from which they can seek support.
