I Create India

Programs

Training Of Trainers (TOT)

Facilitators are the critical link between the IP developed by I Create and it reaching the beneficiaries. All potential facilitators have to undergo the TOT program of I Create before they can start handling the sessions independently. TOT is typically a five full day-long program with batch ranging between 20 and 30.

Refresher and On-the-Job Training Program

Facilitators need to undergo refresher programs to ensure that they are up-to-date in terms of content and methodology. Such refresher programs are conducted by the Academy for the benefit of all Facilitators. Additionally, to ensure that the new facilitator is well versed in I Create methodology, we provide help by way of on-the-job training.

Entrepreneurship Awareness Program (EAP)

In certain situations, potential beneficiaries are to be made aware of Entrepreneurship in general and about I Create program in specific. The program is conducted over a two to three hour duration, wherein the participants are made aware of the pleasures and perils of entrepreneurship. They are given input about what is involved in an entrepreneur’s journey from idea to implementation and beyond.

Aspiring Entrepreneurs Workshop (AEW)

This is a typically five day workshop for a batch size of between 25 and 30 participants. The beneficiaries are motivated to learn more about the “how” of entrepreneurship and generally are equipped with a skill or hobby or domain knowledge they want to convert in to a business.

Business Plan Mentoring

Candidates participating in this stage are highly motivated to start a business with an idea they would have finalized. Such individuals (protégés) are given one-on-one mentoring by I Create Mentors.

Access to Capital

Protégé would have been made aware of during mentoring the various options for funding the project and he/she would have identified most appropriate one in the business plan. This is the starting point for seeking capital per plan. Protégé is guided in this by the mentor.

Handholding

This stage of the process is when the individual has already started the business. He/she may face problems not anticipated in the plan and needs to talk and get counsel from somebody able to help. Our mentors take up this role. This is also a one-on-one process as the situations would be unique to the individual.
