Dr Trupti Gokhale, associate professor and faculty in charge-Centre for Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship at BITS Pilani Dubai, said: “Every child has an entrepreneurial mindset, we just need to help them develop it. We need to encourage our students to dare and start even with something small. Success should not be measured by monetary rewards but by dedication and how they take things forward.”

BITS Pilani Dubai Campus' (BPDC) engagement with Expo 2020 goes back to 2017-2018, when seven teams, comprising students and faculty mentors, received seed funds under the Expo Live University Innovation Grant.

"The seed fund was used for prototype development and the progress was reviewed by the Expo team over 2018 and 19. The teams were invited to exhibit their prototypes at the Future Innovators Summit at The Good Place pavilion earlier this month," says Trupti Gokhale, Associate Professor, Department of Biotechnology, and Faculty in Charge, Centre for Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship Dubai (CUED), BITS Pilani Dubai.

"Expo 2020 has been a wonderful platform for students and professors to connect with the recent advances in technology and witness their application to solve societal problems;' she says.

BPDC also encouraged student start-ups to present their ideas at India Pavilion's Innovation Hub. "Seven student and six alumni start-ups from the university presented their ideas at the Innovation Hub, while six start-ups were selected to present at the Elevate Series for seed funding and investments. The success of these start-ups has motivated and encouraged students to consider entrepreneurship as a career option;· says Gokhale.
