The company signed an MoU with the Electronics Sector Skills Council of India. Under the program, the partners will train 3,000 underprivileged young Indians.

We are aligned to the Government’s vision, and through Samsung Innovation Campus, want to empower the youth and create opportunities in future tech domains, giving a further boost to new India’s growth story.”
It is noteworthy that the Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship & Electronics and IT, Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar was also present on the occasion. He said that “skilling should not be just about equipping the youth with employable skills but should act as gateways to employability and employment – as their Passports to Prosperity. He suggested that effort should be taken up not just with premier educational institutions but also with universities and institutes in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities.”
Samsung Innovation Campus aims to upskill youth aged 18-25 years in future technologies and enhance their employability. These are key technology skills for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The youth is ready to change the future, and so are we. 🙌
