Nelson Mandela said: "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". And that’s exactly what Udhyam is trying to do.

The Delhi government launched a one of its kind Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum on July 1, 2019 with non-profit Udhyam Learning Foundation.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government implemented the curriculum across all government schools in July this year. Focusing on experiential learning the Delhi government roped in non-profit Udhyam Learning Foundation as a volunteer on this project.

Udhyam, founded in 2017 by Mekin Maheshwari who formerly worked as chief people officer at Flipkart, facilitates grass root entrepreneurship opportunities for the youth.
