The number of youngsters pursuing academic courses that don’t interest them and continuing with jobs that don’t excite them is on the rise. One of the main reasons for this is that they are afraid to drop out and get branded as failures. But what if dropping out could mean getting an opportunity to make one’s dreams come true? To help those who dropped out from the system to create their own destiny, MTV is launching a unique reality show, Dropout Pvt. Ltd. to make their entrepreneurial dreams come true.
Viacom18 owned music and entertainment channel MTV India is starting a new television show called Dropout Pvt Ltd which is aimed at providing a platform to budding entrepreneurs in the country and mentor them on the platform. The show aims at creating a company and ideal founding team first time on live television.
Set to premiere on July 29 on MTV, the brand new reality show created by the twins Raghu Ram and Rajiv Laxman’s production house Monozygotic, and co-developed by them and MTV, will document the journey of the world’s first-ever startup formed on television, and is inviting entries from prospective entrepreneurs as well as ideas rejected in the VC stage to test their mettle in front of the experienced panel of mentors.
The show aims to give a birth to a startup which will be formed following nationwide participants and auditions. It will also take viewers through the process of identifying and transforming ‘dropouts’ in life recruiting them in an ideal start-up team and kick starting their entrepreneurial journey. These selected contestants will face challenges where they have to solve real-world business problems in a short time. The show will be premiered on July 29 at 7 pm on MTV India.
