GTU has developed interventions, which are organically linked to its pedagogical work. In India, GTU is the only large technological university, which has developed its own Student Startup policy. In support to create a close bonding between students, student entrepreneurs and successful entrepreneurs.
GTU has formed two forums Young Entrepreneurs for S4 (YES4) & Student Entrepreneurs for S4 (SES4) to give a platform to all the Young & Student Entrepreneurs in the state. Those who register with these forums will be able to avail various facilities like capacity building workshops, networking, etc. As the forums grow in size, the university may start organizing an Annual National Student Start-up Festival every year.
