The main objectives were to help individuals explore newer business or livelihood opportunities, to familiarize individuals with the Government Initiatives, Polices, Support & Infrastructure, to sensitize individuals regarding initiatives & support available for entrepreneurship development & to motivate & induce individuals to acquire skills & competencies to become entrepreneur.

Biotechnopreneur™ Camps, Gujarat


A series of Seminars – christened as ‘Biotechnopreneur™ Camps’ in all major cities of Gujarat with an aim of addressing all of the gaps that have been identified, has been envisaged. In a half-day programme, it would be opting to give a brief picture regarding the business areas in Biotechnology, the scenario – global, national and regional as also discussing the Support Systems possible.
Businessmen operating in varied fields like chemical, pharmaceuticals, textile, etc. have already taken the first step towards entrepreneurship and if the trends world-wide are studied, it would be obvious that a large number of biotech businesses have emerged from divergence of these industries into biotechnology. Hence, it would be apt to tap the Entrepreneurial mindset of the people of Gujarat, operating in variety of sectors and showcase to them the business & livelihood opportunities in biotechnology.
The Seminars aim at participation from Tribal Educated Youth, Villagers, Farmers, Workers, Social welfare Society/NGO/SHG Members, etc.
