School students will be introduced to the excitement and skills of entrepreneurship through the ‘Rs.50 Exercise’, a game that has them dreaming up, starting and running a business in a single day. Originated at Stanford University and run successfully at hundreds of top Indian institutes, the Rs.50 Exercise has been adapted to work for students aged 7 – 12 years.
