BITS Incubation & Entrepreneurship Cell is the umbrella body for nurturing and overseeing innovation and entrepreneurship at BITS Ghaziabad. With a rich tradition of incubation through bodies such as the IIT Bombay, BITS Ghaziabad has also pioneered innovation with groups such as the E-cell, PDP and Clubs as well. BITS-IEC will leverage these experiences and give entrepreneurship a stronger push as well as serve to coordinate and promote innovation-driven activities at the institute.
BITS seeks to nurture technology and knowledge based ventures through their start-up phase by providing the necessary support to help entrepreneurs survive in the competitive market and reach a stage where they can scale-up their ventures further. The BITSIEC aims to build and share resources including space and infrastructure, access to business support services, mentoring, training programmes to enhance the skills of entrepreneurs and seed funds. The scope of support is broad-based, and covers technologies/IP developed wholly at the Institute or partly through collaborations elsewhere, as well as external start-ups with which BITS members are associated as consultants or mentors.
