Well well, Some thing clicking in mind ? Go ahead, speak out your mind ..Indian Institute of Technology. Bingo, Yes the common factor is all of them are IITians and to one extent IIM.
Most of the startups are by IIT Delhi Alumni. Is IIT a place of Startup Developers ??
All the above forced me to do a little research about IIT Delhi, What it does so special to groom students ?? ( One point to be noted, Whenever a student enters IIT or IIM, first point which comes in mind is that the student is exceptional )
To generate new knowledge by engaging in cutting-edge research and to promote academic growth by offering state-of-the-art undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes.
To identify, based on an informed perception of Indian, regional and global needs, areas of specialization upon which the institute can concentrate.
To undertake collaborative projects which offer opportunities for long-term interaction with academia and industry.
To develop human potential to its fullest extent so that intellectually capable and imaginatively gifted leaders can emerge in a range of professions.
List is endless and I can not post every thing here. Hope you can contribute more to this article.
