Bengaluru: The Muslim Industrialists Association (MIA) here has initiated a programme to handhold a hundred entrepreneurs in order that they could develop their business or industry to a capacity of earning a lakh of rupees a month. This was revealed here in a press conference by Mr. M. A. Khan, President of the Association which has a membership of over 250 industrialists in Bengaluru and Karnataka. Khan told the media-persons that they are supporting 100 students in order to realize their dream of getting admissions into IITs and other premier institutes of science and technology. The Association has entered into partnership with 15 colleges across Karnataka for grooming, coaching and guidance of students. Joint Secretary Adil Rahman informed that the Association helps the entrepreneurs and startups to register their firms, procure finance and market their products and services. He said the MIA will henceforth organize visits to industries for school students from 5th to 10th standard to enable them to widen their perspective and broaden their thinking horizon.
The Association has been conducting periodical workshops and seminars on various subjects like personality development, lean management, digital marketing, neuro-linguistic programming for the overall development of its members in both business and systems.
Secretary Mir Abdul Hafeez pointed out that due to the efforts of MIA, around 50 youth were able to set up their own industrial units in the recent years. He said the Association supports ITI certificate, Diploma-holders and BE graduates to undergo a short-term skill development training at the units managed by the MIA members and help them bridge the gap between their academic learning and the prevalent real technology in practice.
