Deferred Placements for Entrepreneurial ventures

Now that’s a novel concept.
IIT Bombay has started this concept where students willing to be entrepreneurs can go ahead with their ventures, and if they do not achieve success they can go back to the alma mater unto 2 years later and go through the normal placement processes.
But the catch is that the students who will be allowed such leeway will be scrutinized by a special panel who will evaluate each venture and decide on which ones will be offered security under this initiative.

On one hand, I think this is a welcome steps for many who might not be able to get their startup where they had planned to, but on other hand I think once you ‘startup’ there’s no looking back to a normal job.
It’s a welcomed initiative anyways!

I just wish there were more college who would encourage students to go entrepreneurial way!
