Staffing Firm Steps In to Sponsor NJIT Entrepreneurship Project

Somerset, New Jersey (PRWEB) June 02, 2013

Currently over 60 students are enrolled in various Interdisciplinary Design Studio (IDS) programs at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). Rangam Consultants, Inc., which is among the top strategic sourcing services and staffing firms serving its Fortune 500 clients in over 36 states in the United States, together with branding and marketing strategy company The Think Cloud and Brian Kiernan, will invest their money on eight students for summer long sponsorship. The two teams of four were selected at a presentation by 17 IDS teams during a recent workshop. The basic purpose of the workshop is to allow undergrads to use their theoretical knowledge to develop innovative technologies and also to venture into new businesses that justify their invented technologies. The two teams that received the summer stipend of $20,000 each were Autismind and TouchCare.

An NJIT bulletin says the students will be mentored by successful entrepreneurs from the corporate world, industry experts, renowned in-house faculty members as well as those from other reputed institutions. The course materials will include professional ethics, project development, global diversity, entrepreneurship and management.

"Practical knowledge and personal self-confidence gained by the students during the project development process is more important than the theoretical knowledge gained in the classroom environment. It is both fascinating and personally very satisfying to see how the students have progressed from being ‘starry-eyed big government program idealists’ to ‘down-to-earth pragmatists’ recognizing that one can also change the world through small incremental steps, while making a profit at the same time," said Mr Kiernan, who is a charter member of the NJIT IDS External Advisory Board.

The IDS Program was founded in 2011 by Dr Atam Dhawan. In the current season there are three active class years comprising 17 teams. Once the program gets going steadily, there will be four class years at the same time.

"What these students have accomplished in such a short time is nothing short of amazing," said Dhawan. “I’m so proud of what they've done and I know that after they graduate they will improve the technological fabric of American society,” he added.

"Entrepreneurs and small businesses have been playing and will continue to play a key role in the growth of US economy in areas of innovation and technology. So a program like IDS is of paramount importance for engineers to receive better training from industry experts in order to become young, successful entrepreneurs," said Nish Parikh, Vice President of Rangam Consultants.

"Rangam is really fortunate to participate in and support the IDS Program. We're looking forward to the success of the Program developed by Dr Dhawan," said Hetal Parikh, CEO of Rangam.
