Kerala has been promoting the entrepreneurial culture among the young generation for the last couple of years. The Start up initiatives has been implemented in the State long back much before the Start up Policies were announced by Government of India. The most talented youth of Kerala have been leaving the State in pursuit of better career options, and many of them have become successful entrepreneurs outside the State. This loss is irreparable in a Knowledge Economy where people and ideas are more important than land or capital. To realize the true potential of Kerala, this 'brain drain' needs to be reversed. By smoothly integrating the technological and creative skills of youth to solve the contemporary problems, the State aspires to kick-start an entrepreneurial culture, which contributes to increased knowledge, wealth and employment. Government's endeavour is to build an entrepreneurial society in Kerala with a single consciousness by leveraging technology in bridging the gaps between different layers of the society, with a pro-active sense of social responsibility.
