About BYST


Bharatiya Yuva Shakti Trust, (BYST), as the name suggests, is a platform for empowering Indian youth to turn their business ideas into profitable enterprises, with guidance and support of a mentor.  With an aim to channelize the power of India’s youth towards economic development, BYST’s principles are based on the famous words of Mr JRD Tata- “If we touch one life, it has the potential to transform the lives of a billion people”.

 A unique non-profit organisation, we are a perfect blend of the Prince of Wales Youth Business Trust (PYBT) and India’s age-old, time honoured, ‘guru-shishya’ tradition, where-in mentors train, support, monitor and help young aspiring entrepreneurs. By adopting the ancient guru-shishya “parampara”, BYST mentors instill values and a sense of self-confidence in their respective mentees. This  dream project of Ms Lakshmi Venkatesan over 25 years ago, today we have spread our wings across the nation, supporting and mentoring thousands of young entrepreneurs through our mentor network.
