BYST Terms & Conditions
Bharatiya Yuva Shakti Trust (BYST) provides a comprehensive and integrated platform to strategically shape regional, national and industry agendas in the field of entrepreneurship development of women and youth from underprivileged and underserved communities.
BYST is a not-for-profit organisation that primarily assists disadvantaged Indian youth in developing business ideas into viable enterprises under the guidance of a mentor. Inspired by HRH, The Prince of Wales, and founded in 1992, Bharatiya Yuva Shakti Trust is the first organisation to replicate the Prince’s Trust’s youth entrepreneurship support model globally outside the U.K. The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is our strategic partner.
The programmes include supporting underprivileged young entrepreneurs by supplementing financing based on the requirement assessment done by the mentor selectors, Rs. 5 lakhs being the present average and with an upper limit of Rs. 100 lakhs. They are also supported with a host of business-related activities such as training, business plan development, monitoring, mentoring, and networking. The young entrepreneurs are nurtured till they reach a level where not only are they self-sufficient, but they, in turn, make a valuable contribution to society through the creation of wealth and employment.
