Tata STRIVE actively builds partnerships with Tata companies, non-profits, non-Tata companies,
government agencies, foundations, trusts and banks. India's industrial technical institutes (ITIs) are a big
component of the partnership model. Tata STRIVE works with credible NGOs, some of whom may already have a working
relationship with one or more Tata companies. This relationship is then built upon, wherein Tata STRIVE brings in
knowledge, technology and process expertise while leveraging the physical infrastructure.
Tata STRIVE is engaged in discussions with several State Governments to collaborate
on skill development. These include Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Punjab etc. where STRIVE aims to help the
State achieve its skilling vision.
Tata STRIVE is discussing opportunities to partner with non-profits across India and
overseas. Partnering with STRIVE will enable ITIs and non-profits to not only expand their offerings but also
make them market relevant as these programmes would be developed by companies based on their needs - for
instance, an auto mechanic course designed by Tata Motors or a refrigeration mechanic course designed by
Non-Tata Corporates, which are an important part of the partnership model, bring in
complementary capabilities including new domain expertise. Collaboration with funding agencies such as banks
enable access to funds for candidates to meet their course fees.
