Developing entrepreneurship skills amongst students has gained ground in recent times. Most futuristic models of education are focused towards creating graduates who would either want to become an entrepreneur immediately on graduation or after a few years in industry or the corporate world. Encouraging innovative ideas and developing entrepreneurial orientation are some of the key objectives of this initiative. Keeping this in mind, Amrita has established the Amrita Centre for Entrepreneurship (ACE) at Coimbatore, and a Technology Business Incubation Centre at Amritapuri.
The Amrita Centre for Entrepreneurship (ACE) was inaugurated on 27 June 2011. The ACE Charter is to: “Provide an eco-system that will kindle, nurture and support the innate desire and ideas lying dormant in the individual and create avenues to fructify those ideas into meaningful enterprises”.
ACE has been involved in the following activities:*
- Facilitating Workshops on entrepreneurship
- Conducting programmes with Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDI)
- Arranging special sessions on the topics given below:
