Entrepreneurship Development Cell

Welcome to EDCell

Entrepreneurship Development Cell was set up in the year 2009 under the AICTE initiative and is working under the guidance of the Department of Human Resources Management in co-ordination with NRDC-IIEST IFC, TCGTBI and now with IIC IIESTS.
We enable smooth and efficient interaction between its principal components spanning students, faculty, working professionals, aspiring and existing entrepreneurs, mentors, angel investors, and venture capitalists. We're connected with other agencies of our institute involved in entrepreneurship and innovation like Institution's Innovation Council (IIC), Tagore Centre for Green Technology Business Incubation, NRDC IIEST Innovation Facilitation Centre (IFC), IPR Cell, etc....
We share the common belief that for India to emerge as a world power, the youth has to break the shackles of prejudices and inertia that has kept them from starting up. Creating an entrepreneurial ecosystem to provide the platform for individuals with creative minds and ideas with potential for substantial business opportunities, is what we strive towards continually.
