Pune: The Vishwakarma Institute of Information Technology (VIIT) and Global Super Elite (GSE) have taken up a mission to reverse brain drain on full swing with their initiative ‘Unlock India’.  GSE through this initiative has created a platform for engineering students to boost their potential and innovative ideas and bring it on the industrial front to create a skillful India. 

“India has lost many good engineers to foreign lands. Engineers from India go abroad for better opportunities and excel there. For example, Satya Nadella in Microsoft, Sundar Pichari in Google, Indra Nooyi in Pepsi and much more.

Due to unavailability of proper resource many engineers step out of India to find good resources that will aide their ideas. We want to create an ecosystem where these students get adequate resource and equipment here itself,” said Executive Partner of GSE, Rohit Shah. 

“We are creating a bridge between the innovators in Silicon Valley and India, to make sure Indian innovators are getting the right mentorship and ecosystem,” added Shah.  

The Unlock India had started in April this year by roping in 43 students from Computer Engineering department with a vision to establish 18 innovation. 

The products include a chat box called Connect Me through which one can easily get contact details of anyone from a pharmacist, doctors, mechanics, plumbers to higher authorities by typing on search option. Details of these will be available in the inbox immediately. An online portal that supports all e-commerce sites will help raise funds for NGOs whenever a customer shops online.  

Other products are a device that will help one to monitor electricity through their phones or computers, a website has been developed named ‘Ratan’ that will help build networking with people you want to business and many more. 

“GSE has unlocked the student’s potential in such a way that these innovations were created in one month. In the college level, it has accelerated the placements, entrepreneurship and made students more innovate. In this process many students are motivated to be entrepreneurs as well,” said Director of VIIT college, BS Karkare.
