The Centre for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE) fosters innovation driven entrepreneurship in India through incubation, investment, research and training.
Started at the Indian Institute of Management (Ahmedabad) in 2002 – initially as a research and training centre – CIIE’s incubation and investment activities received an impetus in 2007 following the creation of a dedicated physical infrastructure with support from IIM Ahmedabad, Government of India and the Gujarat Government and an autonomous investment entity.
Apart from incubating and investing in over 50 innovative ventures across the high-tech sector, CIIE has also incubated several initiatives to strengthen India’s entrepreneurial ecosystem by providing mentoring, financial and knowledge inputs. We know that it takes more than just early stage risk-capital to get a company off the ground – we enable most of what an entrepreneur may require through our initiatives and ecosystem interventions.
We comprise of faculty, alumni and students of IIMA, mentors and service providers from the industry who span a variety of functional areas, sectoral domains and geographies and are passionately committed to helping disruptive innovations and aspiring entrepreneurs succeed commercially.
