India is the 3rd fastest growing ecosystem in the world. Many premier technical institutions and universities in India have started playing vital role in the process of technology entrepreneurship by offering variety of services in the area of start-up creation, business incubation, easy access to capital and knowledge access to many young potential innovators and entrepreneurs and helping them being groomed to succeed with new and innovative ideas. Various support mechanisms are also observed in form of structured mentorship programs, short training and vocational course adopted in universities to building the confidence in students to convert ideas to innovations and start-up establishment.

Despite all these efforts, critical mass of entrepreneurial oriented student base and entrepreneurship culture still lacks in most of the Indian technical universities and institutions. Indian start-up ecosystem perceives threats because of prevailing social conventions regarding education and career choices and the relative difficulty of doing business in India. Low tolerance to failure among Indian students, peer pressure for placement in secure jobs and concern of repaying study loans are major impending forces preventing many Indian students from pursuing the entrepreneurial path. In addition to this, the active university’s participation and lack of entrepreneurial expert base in most of the technical institutions to provide handhold support to student entrepreneurs in the process of entrepreneurship is also a factor of concern.

The start-up cell aims to achieve following objectives-

1. To develop a critical mass of motivated students & faculties with entrepreneurial orientation & skill.
2. To build infrastructure support for innovation & early stage enterprise development and enabling access to resource & facilities at the college.
3. To enhance in-house competency of faculties to serve mentor and advisory services to potential and early stage entrepreneurs and student innovators at the college.
4. To strengthen the inter-department and inter-institutional linkage, incubators and other ecosystem enablers at different levels.
