IN Brief
In India, Tech Startups May Be
Hint of Academic Sea Change

technical talent, has one element notably absent from its
technology narrative—success stories of those willing to enter
the risk-laden environment of entrepreneurship .
Innovation requires an environment and mindset open
to experimentation and failure, something not commonly
seen within India’s rigid education system . For the country’s
risk-averse middle class, according to a Reuters news report,
a college degree is the stable ticket to a better career,
while entrepreneurship is viewed as a “last recourse of the
unemployed .”
Creative thinkers are hoping to change that climate
through their support of Startup Village, a campus
technology startup incubator project based near Kochi, a port
city on the southwest coast of India . The project site offers
engineering students office space, mentorship, angel funding,
networking, and legal and intellectual property services, all
with the goal to nurture 1,000 student startups in the next
five years . Tech Republic reports that the project seeks
to produce India’s first billion-dollar technology company
funded by college students within the next decade .
This could mean big things for the face of India’s education
system, in a country where every second citizen is below the
age of 25 . Already, the government in the southwestern state
of Kerala responded to Startup Village’s initiative by creating
a student entrepreneurship policy for its colleges: Chosen
students in the incubator would get an attendance waiver of
20 percent, and a 4 percent additional grade-weighting for
pursing entrepreneurship .
The change is “very radical,” Sasha Mirchandani, mentor
to the project and CEO of venture capital firm Kae Capital
told Tech Republic in November 2012, saying that it might be
the first time a local government in India has stepped in help
foster a “vibrant student entrepreneurial ecosystem .”

Joe W. Neal, one of the founders of NAFSA
and president of the association from
1960–1961, died January 14, 2013, at the

Over the years, Neal received thousands of
international students at the University of
Texas-Austin, and he maintained contact

As one of NAFSA’s most active members, Neal served in several capacities,
helped form NAFSA’s Region III (including Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and
Texas) and even hosted a special event at
his family ranch during the 1983 Region
III Conference.
