TemplateMonster, (http://www.templatemonster.com/) a United States based web design templates company, announced its plan to start operations in the Vijayawada and Vishakhapatnam cities of Andhra Pradesh (AP). The company will keep Vijayawada city as its base to start the operations. It will sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the AP government in a week.
The firm will provide training to the youth of the state in digital marketing, technology tools and client support. It hopes to create around 1,000 jobs for the youth in the state.
The firm will train the students in colleges that have incubation centres. The institutions that do not have the incubation facility would be trained at the firm’s facility that will be opened soon. Initially, the firm will provide a month long training to 100 students to help them gain hands-on experience on the basics of digital media marketing.
TemplateMonster has partnered with a Singapore-based firm Tech-Mark Private Limited to launch its youth-first initiative. The firm’s managing director and TemplateMonster’s India Partner, Satish Babu said that this will pave way for the young entrepreneurs in India to use training and technology tools to empower and internationalize the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) across the country.
Further, in the second phase, the firm has plans to expand across the country with AP as its base.
The objective of TempleteMonster is to enhance economic empowerment of the youth in the developing countries. The firm uses a three-pronged approach to achieve this objective: educate, empower and engage by partnering with the local governments and other players.
