ENpower’s collaborative and participative ecosystem involves Corporate Partners, Governments & Foundations to support schools from diverse backgrounds, geographies, & communities. Together we nurture an innovative and entrepreneurial mindset among school children. Here’s a glimpse into some of our impact-focused partnership programs.
We help you to make the difference
Our comprehensive & well-structured curriculum, aligned with the New Educational Policy (NEP), offers age-appropriate & grade-wise entrepreneurship education for young adults. Schools can effortlessly integrate our I.D.E.A Labs curriculum into their learning pedagogy. It features gamified lesson plans & can be divided into modular structures such as co-curricular activities, clubs, workshops, or simulations. We also provide teacher training modules to support smooth implementation.
We offer a portfolio of modular & experiential workshops with specific learning objectives for student groups. These workshops encompass learning technology enablers, problem identification, opportunity evaluation, design thinking, nurturing entrepreneurial mindset, & the journey from idea to venture, among others. Our domain experts curate workshops & programs based on desired learning outcomes, industry linkages, student demographics, & deployment methods.
In the quest of providing students with a hands-on entrepreneurial experience, we have developed Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects that empower them to create their own prototypes, tech-led solutions, & venture models. These projects are designed around real-world problems, SDGs, & industry domains, inspiring students to recognize their potential as future change drivers.
Our impact assessment framework enables educators to measure, assess, & remediate the progress of each child in building 21st-century life skills. The assessments are engaging & gamified. We have introduced EnQ, India's first entrepreneurship mindset measurement index, which allows institutes to track their progress in nurturing a mindset of "job creators" instead of "job-seekers" among the students.
We have established strong connections with the industry & startup ecosystem to enhance our learning ecosystem. Through a series of masterclasses by domain experts, mentor networks, industry-linked idea hackathons, & corporate internships, we provide unique engagement opportunities. These initiatives inspire students to explore entrepreneurial thinking & gain valuable industry exposure.
To foster inspiration & recognition of talent among students, we have developed a comprehensive framework of "Showcase Days'' for schools to organize in their institutes. These events include day-long fun-filled activities, idea pitching to jury panels, idea hackathons, & techpreneurship challenges. We support schools from conceptualization to execution, mentoring groundbreaking ideas, securing seed funding, filing intellectual property, & representing at national & international idea platforms, earning accolades for both students & their institutes.
