Ahmedabad: Plasma technology is the future technology. Institute of Plasma Research (IPR) has offered helping hand to student start-ups. Prof. Amita Das, Dean of IPR told in a conference at GTU that IPR can transfer technology to student start-ups if it can be useful project for the welfare of human being.
Research and Consultancy Services Cell (RCSC) of GTU and Facilitation Centre for Plasma Technologies (FCIPT) of IPR jointly organising two-day workshop on ‘Start-up issues & opportunities’ at GTU Chandkheda campus. Around 70 students, faculties and scientists are participating in the event. Prof. Das told students that usually start-ups are being considered as risky. It has been said that mostly two out of ten start-ups are becoming successful. But students must learn from their failures. Israel has implemented similar strategy.
Dr. Akshai Aggarwal, Vice chancellor of GTU said that if we use newer technology on a big way, then it can be cheaper. We have technology in our labs. Need of the hour is to use the technology for social cause. Plasma technology can be one such technology. Per capita income of China is Four times higher than per capita income of India. If we want to increase per capita income, our export must be higher than import. For this, start-ups can be helpful.
Dr. S. Mukherjee, head of FCIPT of IPR told students about how the plasma technology can be helpful in various industries. Yash Sheth, who runs Venture Nursery in Mumbai also gave tips to students. He said that most of students are thinking that start up bug is everywhere, it is cool. So we are also creating start-up. This attitude is wrong. First of all, you must identify your problem and then don’t fear to share your idea to solve the problem. Prof. Rajnikant Patel, Head of RCSC proposed vote of thanks.
