a. Igniting Spirit of Entrepreneurship
More than 1000 youth will be reached out to during the Global Entrpreneurship week where they will be encouraged and set to think on considering entrepreneurship as an option. This will be done through the partner organisations where the Mentor Counsellers from the chapters along with the success stories would ignite the spirit of entrepreneurship.
A BYST Mentor Chapter is a formal group of business mentors, geographically based, and formed under the aegis of BYST. Formed in the lines of similar organizations such as Rotary and Lions Clubs, the Chapters are characterized by specific objectives and goals and by well-defined structure and processes. The overall vision of the chapters is to develop competent, capable, ethical and successful entrepreneurs through the vehicle of mentoring.
The objectives of the chapters are to bring together and develop individuals as competent mentors who in turn will provide service to entrepreneurs through the process of mentoring. This, BYST feels, would foster Networking and through that, help in building enterprises, developing leadership, sharing of information and attainment of sustained and planned growth.
The Chapters, through their three-tiered organization (National, Regional and Local) and their structure of a local chapter (with a Chair, Vice Chair, Panel of Counselors, Technical Evaluators, Mentor Advisory Panel, Entrepreneur Selection Panel and mentors) acts as a knowledge sharing body and help the new mentors get acquainted with the nuances of mentoring that is then reinforced by pursuing the course.
To keep the interest of the mentors alive presentations on topics of interest such as financial management, entrepreneurship development etc, are done by members.
The 20 mentor chapters in the 6 offices of BYST spread over
