CENTRE FOR ENTREPRENEURIAL DEVELOPMENT

The year 2017 witnessed India's Economy make a significant jump in the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business ranking to reach 100 from 141. EODB program was hence founded to promote 'Ease of Doing Business' in India through reforms and footprint generation in 30 different sectors at state level with various stakeholders to drive India towards 50th rank globally. Education has been identified as one of the crucial fields since it covers multiple sectors like Employment, Skills, StartUps, IPR etc.

A joint program to bring Industry and Academia together in campus with best partners and resources was solicited and the idea was duly supported by both Hon'ble ministers of HRD and Commerce and Industry. We serve this proposal to work with institutions for four quarters and nurture their Campus Startup Cells in a way to reach highest level of incubation support available under AIM as Atal Innovation Centre (AIC).

INTRODUCTION

The booming economy, easy availability of funds and changing socio-economic environment are fostering a new Indian–one who is eager to create his own Infosys, Wipro, TCS, Suzlon or Bharti rather than join one. From starting a new enterprise to overseas acquisitions, these are no longer just aspirations but everyday realities. India's growth story is driven by such entrepreneurs who have yet to go a long way as larger conglomerates with all the success they deserve.

As India continues on an economic boom, we believe that there is a need to assess the Indian ecosystem for its conduciveness to promote and sustain successful entrepreneurial ventures. Entrepreneurial India is our maiden study, envisaged to promote a productive dialogue between industry, academia and the government for whetting and promoting India's entrepreneurial gene.

ndustry and Academia are driving growth factors of entrepreneurial activities or “Campus Start Ups”. This program is one such enabler that gives students a platform to contribute in commercial and industrial growth through their own companies incorporated during the academic years.

It also creates value addition for the institutions in the form of incorporated companies, innovations, prototypes, logos, patents, copyrights, intellectual property rights, research sponsorship and consultancy services provided to the industry along with investments and funding received for their Start Ups.

“I, being the Program Director, can foresee institutions benefiting with significant increase in institutional rankings to position themselves much above other institutions in the region”.

STUDENT ORIENTATION

Orientation Program is the first interaction with students and faculty as primary introduction to the new 'Centre for Entrepreneurial Development'.

This orientation program also provides fair idea of resource and infrastructure to be allocated to the CED cell depending on the number of students who have opted to work on their 'Campus Startups'

This first step of segregating future entrepreneurs from job aspirants also reduces campus placement efforts and opens doors to investors, banks and government to step in to support these campus startups with recognitions, rebates, funds etc. to create jobs around these ecosystems.

WEB LAUNCH

Soft launch before physical inauguration on website is to interact with prospective founder students.

It is very important to familiarize students with competitive start-up culture of other campus and their precedence.

Web Launch of the program gives them an interactive web portal to know about the start, growth and eventual funding patterns to launch their campus start-up in the market after their academic session is complete.

It gives college a place where students can register their enrolment for this program.

This launch leads to creation of workstation for the current batch which later gets physically inaugurated as '1st Generation' Incubation Centre for Entrepreneurial Development for 'Campus StartUps'.

MONTHLY WORKSHOPS & QUARTERLY COMPETITIONS

This program is divided into four quarters.

The first quarter is dedicated to setting up of the CED cell for campus start-ups.

The following quarters will have monthly workshops and a progressive competition towards the end to prepare 'Campus Start-Ups' to face the competitive market outside campus.

This also aims to make continuous improvements in their ecosystem towards self-sustainability.

These quarterly competitions will also engage neighbouring colleges to participate and compete.

This would have a fixed number of investors (Banks, Angel investors and government representatives) visiting and funding best start-ups in the campus.
