Mentorship for ATL Tinkerprenuer Summer Bootcamp

ATL Tinkerprenuer is a 7 week summer boot camp for K-12 school students organized by Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), NITI Aayog to equip them with 21st century digital and entrepreneurial skills to build their digital ventures and launch them online. The Top 100 student teams from India get an opportunity to undergo a 5-week mentorship program with Indian School of Business to learn advanced business skills to transform themselves from Tinkerpreneurs into digital product entrepreneurs or Digipreneurs.

If the first foundation of education is provided by the school and community in the basic literacies and values, the 2nd Foundation fortifies these with the 21st century skills. We put equal emphasis on teaching essential life and social problem solving skills alongside advanced technical skills like programming, robotics and hardware prototyping. This unique mix ensures that the youth build up resilience to face all eventualities that an unpredictable future brings.


The 2nd Foundation program reimagines education holistically and combines high technology with social and emotional learning. The workshops and year long programs are taught in schools across India and are delivered by mentors from AMMACHI Labs, fostering a peer-to-peer learning environment that is conducive to learning. The technical content and social/emotional learning content are woven together to create a unified platform for deeper and more integrated learning.
