Programmes dedicated to providing education to both high school and college students as well as upcoming entrepreneurs


The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) was founded in 1992 in Silicon Valley by a group of successful entrepreneurs, corporate executives, and senior professionals with roots in the Indus region. There are currently over 13,000 members and more than 2,500 charter members in 56 chapters across 13 countries. TiE’s mission is to foster entrepreneurship globally through mentoring, networking, and education. Dedicated to the virtuous cycle of wealth creation and giving back to the community, TiE’s focus is on generating and nurturing our next generation of entrepreneurs.

The objectives declared by both organizations reveal that the RMS and TiE Islamabad Chapter are pursuing similar interests. One of the common interests is the interest of harboring the nation’s young entrepreneurship spirit. Both organizations are pursuing the same interests and also, both have adapted similar strategic programs to attain their objectives, for instance: the Youth oriented programs run by both organizations. TiE Islamabad has developed a Youth Entrepreneurial Society that aims to help guide the youth in their pursued business ventures of tomorrow. Under the Program TiE is establishing Business Clubs in all institutions in Islamabad. RMS has many programs running that include similar objectives. With such jointly vested interests, TiE Islamabad and RMS have decided to form a collaboration to help bring out the maximum potential embodied by the Entrepreneurial Youth of Pakistan.

Entrepreneurship programmes at RMS are a lot of fun for all students but beyond the fun, they achieve very positive results. By learning how academic skills connect to real business opportunities and hopes for success, students are motivated to work harder in school. RMS Entrepreneurship programs also give wide scope to student creativity and energy and offer a positive way for students to channel their talents. Entrepreneurship education can positively impact a learner at all levels in a wide number of contexts. This may explain why there are such a wide variety of entrepreneurship education programs, all of which can provide important outcomes at various stages of a learner’s life.

Entrepreneurial education in RMS is not just about the motivations and skills needed to start-up a business or a new venture; it is also about nurturing the ability and willingness of individuals to create value for themselves, for others and for society. The idea of promoting entrepreneurship through education at RMS has spurred much enthusiasm in the last few years, as it is expected to produce a wide range of outcomes including individual development; increased school engagement and performance; enhanced courage to contribute to societal development; and improved equality. Other expected outcomes include job creation, economic growth and increased societal resilience.

RMS Entrepreneurship Club provides an environment where entrepreneurship is experienced and not only taught in classrooms. Here students work with real projects during the education and apply their knowledge, creativity and entrepreneurial ability in real settings. We at RMS combine internationally acknowledged academic education and research with real value creation in an entrepreneurial environment.
