The National Skill Development Corporation has initiated tje Innovations for Skills Marketplace to host information on innovative solutions, practices, models and other relevant research in the skill development space. These can be used by practitioners, Government agencies, policy makers, corporates and other stakeholders that contribute to this growing and vibrant ecosystem. The site is free to use for everybody and all submissions are voluntary.

NSDC also runs the Innovations for Skills Challenge to look for proposals, which will positively impact and create a multiplier effect in the skill development space. The proposals can be from enterprises, which have solutions to reduce cost, enable new processes and create a higher impact than the existing practices in the current skill development space. Proposals must be validated with a proof of concept. All initiatives must have at least a pilot that has seen some traction along with a scalable business proposition.
