The Entrepreneurship School (TES) announced selection of the Glorifire mobile app for incubation programme at TES. It is a social app developed by Bhargavi Goel, Class XII student of Delhi Public School, Vasant Kunj, to share ideas with the world, find a team member, collaborate with mentors and investors. The impetus provided by Prime Minister Narendra Modi through the Start-up India, Stand-up India initiative has ensured percolation of startup dreams to the school level.

The app solves this problem. It allows students to record and share their innovation projects on a social platform, which is available to teachers, mentors, entrepreneurs, and investors to understand these ideas. Once they find it interesting, they can interact with idea owner and get deeper understanding, build or support solutions to address the requirements using the idea and/or fund the idea for the student to pursue.

Sanjeeva Shivesh, CEO, TES said: “There is a high impact of the app developed by a person in her teens. We are excited about the use case of this app, its ability to help children who want to make a difference in the society and its possibility of massive adoption by school students all across India. We are impressed with the single-minded focus of Bhargavi about the challenges faced by adolescent school-goers and her intuitive insights on solving their problems”.
