Philosophy

Philosophy

The core philosophy of the centre is to cultivate visionary entrepreneurs in all walks of life. To achieve this, the centre designs and runs various initiatives around its four core philosophical pillars: culture, nurture, venture, and mature.

Culture

The centre aims at developing a vibrant entrepreneurial culture. To create an enabling eco-system on campus and develop leadership and organizational skills, the centre has instituted and set up a student-led Entrepreneurship and Innovation Cell (EIC). The centre also intends to promote entrepreneurship and innovation as career and lifestyle options.

Nurture

The centre wants to nurture an entrepreneurial mindset and skill set. To develop entrepreneurial capabilities, the centre offers a curriculum that trains students to develop entrepreneurial competencies, generate business ideas, develop a business plan and negotiate investments. The centre has collaborated with Babson College, USA, the world’s No.1 school for entrepreneurship to put in place a scientifically designed experiential curriculum in entrepreneurship.

Venture

To provide an outlet for innovations and enable the commercialization of technologies and ideas emerging because of faculty-student partnerships is the mandate of this third pillar. The centre facilitates starting, shaping and scaling up new ventures. CEI has set up a state-of-the-art incubation facility known as Mahindra e-hub.

Mature

For an idea to translate into a viable business opportunity and for start-ups to mature into sustainable and socially relevant ventures, the centre provides mentoring, networking and funding help to the start-ups.

Our Team

Based on the belief that innovation and entrepreneurship are mutually beneficial, the cell’s goal is to instil in the student community at the university
