Integral University has a unique culture of inclusiveness, diversity, personal and intellectual integrity and value-based education. It has a highly qualified and trained team of accomplished faculty and robust academic infrastructure. It always maintains a high standard of educational excellence and continuously strives to create a student centric environment. The role of entrepreneurship education has been growing over the years and has assumed a new dimension after the recent launch of “Atmanirbhar Bharat” mission of the Government of India. To encourage and foster an entrepreneurial culture in the university campus and develop an environment of innovation and creativity, the university has recently started a Centre for Incubation & Entrepreneurship Development (CIED). CIED will help the students in unearthing their hidden potential by exploring and experimenting with their ideas to create new enterprises for offering their innovative products and services. Integral University, through CIED, will also contribute in the regional and national socio-economic development by helping in setting up entrepreneurial ventures by the students of the university.
PRO- CHANCELLOR'S MESSAGE
CIED has been created with a clear vision and focus ‘to create a vibrant and sustainable ecosystem in the Integral University campus for promoting and nurturing creativity, innovation, leadership and entrepreneurship.’ The whole idea is to help students convert their start up dreams into reality.
CIED has already started working on the mandate given to it. It has recently launched an ambitious program “STARTUP PATHSHALA”. A series of entrepreneurship education programs are being offered to the students under this banner. Entrepreneurship education focuses on developing real-world skills that will help students to lead exceptional lives in a rapidly changing world. Entrepreneurship education teaches students crucial life skills such as; collaborating and working in a team, public speaking, identifying & solving complex problems using creativity and innovative approaches.
CIED is fast moving towards having a full-fledged incubation centre to incubate new enterprises, particularly technology based start-ups, with innovative products and services.
I sincerely hope that our student community will take maximum benefit from CIED’s initiatives. Wishing you all the very best for your endeavours as entrepreneurs and productive members of society.
VICE- CHANCELLOR'S MESSAGE
Entrepreneurship is like planting a sapling. Firstly you invest your time and money. Then, you must take care of it while actually expecting nothing in return. But when your startup blossoms, it makes all the patience and hard work worthwhile.
Centre for Incubation & Entrepreneurship Development (CIED) was set up by the Integral
University in October 2019 to promote, encourage and incubate new enterprises, particularly technology based start-ups,
with innovative products and services. Enhancing the spirit of entrepreneurship and developing the required skills
to open up sustainable entrepreneurial paths for the students of the university and helping them in unearthing their
hidden potential is the primary focus of CIED.
Backed by a strong alumni base that includes successful entrepreneurs and domain experts, CIED is well placed to incubate, nurture and guide prospective entrepreneurs in starting sustainable businesses. With the external support of a strong panel of Board of Advisors and mentors, which includes CEOs, startup owners, technology and other professionals and experts from the industry and academia, CIED is committed to helping aspiring entrepreneurs in turning their ideas into viable businesses.
CIED is made up of faculty, students and alumni of Integral University. We welcome all the constituents of CIED into the world of startups and entrepreneurs and travel with us on this exciting journey.
