Talking about the strategy behind this move, Mona Gandhi, Founder – Upraised said: “It is very encouraging to see tech leaders coming together to help skill the young talent of India. If done right, internships can help more students from tier 2 and 3 cities to participate in the tech gold rush we are witnessing right now, and it can widen the pool of qualified talent that companies can hire from. It’s a win-win for everyone. Given how inspiring these leaders are to the youth of India, we are hopeful to create awareness about Embark and its benefits, to as many students as possible. We are confident to bridge the industry-academia gap, so that students are not worried about getting the right opportunities in today’s competitive business environment.”
Vijay Shekhar Sharma, Founder and CEO, Paytm said, “India has a large pool of youngsters that need training to build great careers. Excited to support Upraised as they skill students and get them internships at startups. I encourage students to participate in Embark and get the best internships in India.”
