Jagriti Ambassadors for District Entrepreneurs

We are calling you to be the Jagriti Ambassador for District Entrepreneurs (JADE) in your respective region, and hunt for future entrepreneurs, and help them participate in the Yatra. You have the chance to directly get involved in this fantastic talent spotting activity by being the nominated Jagriti Ambassadors for your region.

Every year we put in a lot of effort in trying to find deserving candidates in the small towns and villages of India, however our voice seldom gets into these areas due to lack of communications channels. Yet we know that the next nation-builder will emerge from our disparate Tier 3 and 4 towns where majority of our population live and where the opportunity to build through enterprise is the greatest.

We would like you to play a key role in identifying this talent.

“ Be a Jagriti ambassador...
Spread the message of Jagriti in your district...
Get 30 entrepreneurial youth from your district... ”
