StartupYou conducted sessions online for five weeks and they were for grades 7 to 11. The sessions provided a lot of information on design thinking, creative mindset, time management, goal setting and gave a basic introduction on how to start or run a business. There were also a lot of fun activities conducted such as the idea bank, SMART-C goals and creative thinking.Rahi Samant
