(Study Program) Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship: Call for Registration

(Study Program) Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship

Over the last decade Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay) has created a vibrant innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem at its campus. Under the support of Asian University alliance (AUA), IIT Bombay will host a study program called “Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship (I2E)” from 1-7 July in India.

The program aims to acquaint students with the evolution and impact of entrepreneurship on society, the application of techniques of innovation to the generation of new ideas and the transformation of ideas into business opportunities.

The three main components of the innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem are:
(1) The Entrepreneurship Cell (E-Cell): a student organization which motivates students to bring out their latent spirit of enterprise.
(2) Society for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (SINE): a premier technology business incubator hosted by IIT Bombay since 2004.
(3) Desai Sethi Centre for Entrepreneurship (DSfCE): encourages and supports students in transforming their novel ideas into technology-based ventures.

It offers both academic and business inputs to the students and has designed new courses covering all aspects of entrepreneurship.

The week-long AUA Overseas Study Program will bring together all these components to give participants a hands-on experience at making strategy, followed by persuasion to the “investors”. Participants will also tour some of India’s top companies and visit historic places in Mumbai, the financial capital of India.
