E-rozgaar – Preparing Youth for Gig Economy

Innovative ideas create amazing results. Punjab IT Board’s bold initiative of investing into the future of youth through skill enhancement has brought wonders. A total of 100 students graduated in the first batch this week from Chief Minister’s e-rozgaar programme. Off those a little over 50% were females.

Saad Hamid and I were invited for a “Fireside Chat” during their graduation ceremony. The focus of our chat was “How to Monetize using Open Source”. We not only discussed open source but also shared insights on how to transition from freelancers into becoming successful entrepreneurs. The questions probed by students were really thoughtful and the session was thoroughly enjoyable. I am also part of the steering committee of the programme and therefore I do get a chance to get more deeply involved.
