Often in India, there is a skill-gap between college graduates and industry requirements. This is especially true in Tier II cities which lack sufficient exposure to global standards of efficiency and excellence. The Deshpande Educational Trust (DET) was established in 2010 to provide skill-based quality education to the youth. Making them immediately employable in their respective fields. The DET is strongly supported by the Deshpande Foundation as it provides the necessary connections to entrepreneurs, for-profit and non-profit enterprises and educational institutions.
