Celebrating our silver jubilee year…
It is high time for achange. We have spent more than 25 years of thejourney as an organization. Our way of working, technology and strategic effort must align with emerging change of the environment. The government effort to push the growth process demands entrepreneurial leadership at the national, state and lowest level while building synergy to theintegrated development process by all of us. Building entrepreneurial acumen with a high sense of commitment and sense of purpose is very critical to address tomorrow ‘’the alternative is clear, and dire. If we begin to have a right blend of skilling& entrepreneurship for socially excluded community, we would arrest the economic disparity and implosion of our society’’. Let us celebrate together that our future will be bright and we all pledge to make India excel and set higher standards of living for all with agreater sense of collective social responsibility.
Dr Nagendra P. Singh,
GENESIS of Organisation
The genesis of our organisation has evolved on the premise that our country with growing population needs more of job creators than job seekers to addresses our socio-economic concerns of tomorrow. Job creators are start-up leaders and entrepreneurs. Such a campaign has been reinvented by Indian brand makers and several stake holders of today. However, the innovative leadership of the current Government has added passion towards entrepreneurial resurgence amongst youth and driving towards a momentous growth of economy while integrating a new development paradigm despite several odds. A-SEED that was sown as a non- profit autonomous body and was conceived in the idea womb of a few thinkers. The idea hatched in to action from conception to visibility by early 90s. The climate of educating entrepreneurs had begun despite inadequate market infrastructure and poor readiness of financial institutions. The skill component has been missing nor was capability building on the card of the institutions. Now the time has changed and climate has become more receptive to give dignity to entrepreneurs. Society is also vibrant to accord better support & inspiration.
ASEED stepping to new height
Asian society for entrepreneurship education and development began to spread the mission of job creation campaign as against obsession of job seeking in theeducation sector in Asean region. Our first aggressive development intervention moved beyond India after its early intervention of Indiastepped into Malaysia, Indonesia, Nepal and Srilanka were the testing field for models already in place.
As we moved ahead with the history other thematic areas formed core strategic focus of the organisation ASEED chose four operating areas. These are: water and biodiversity, community health and HIV, Livelihood security and MSME and capacity building. The capacity building areas evolved as by IDMAT (International institute of development management technology). Over the years our clientele base has been widened and institutional development has taken off the ground. Our national learning centre has been conducting courses in partnership with NIESBUD, NIFTEM, and NSTEDB& PSUs. The current policy support of the government has inspired the community to self -empower and acquire skills to move for start-up and stand up for economic self-reliance. Our multi skill training centre(MSTC) at Arrah Bihar has already begun conducting training courses on entrepreneurship with help of national agencies for thepoor and socially excluded community.
