Paper Title
Role of start-ups in the skill development of school children, with special reference to Indian homemade toys
  Dr. Preetha.P.S,  P. Premjith

‘Startup India,’ a flagship initiative of the Government of India, is intended to build a strong ecosystem for nurturing innovation and startups in the country. According to government of India, it will drive sustainable economic growth and generate large scale employment opportunities. ‘Indian Homemade Toys (IHT),’ with ‘make your own toys’ as its motto, is one such startup founded by two school children from Kerala. The mission of its founders is to inspire Indian children to become technology innovators. India loses roughly around $ 2 billion on toy imports annually and most of these toys are made from recycled plastic, even including hospital waste. Indian Homemade Toys could be a possible solution. If India really needs to achieve the objectives of ‘Skill India,’ a massive collaboration between children, public, government, financial institutions, industry, academics and educational institutions etc. is most needed. If toy-making is introduced to 200 million school children as an additional creative activity, they can learn and acquire a lot of skills by doing. IHT puts forward a new concept of entrepreneurship: ‘Smart-ups’ or ‘integrated startups.’

Keywords- Startup India, Indian Homemade Toys (IHT), innovation, Skill India, Smart-ups, integrated startups
