ABOUT

Entrepreneurial Education has so far primarily been viewed as a major engine for economic growth and job creation along with a response to the increasingly globalized & complex world we live in, requiring all people and organizations in society to be equipped with entrepreneurial skills.

 

A much less discussed but highly interesting impact that entrepreneurship can have on education is the high levels of student motivation and engagement it can trigger, and also the resulting deep learning. Those students that pick up strong interest and aptitude for value creation can then continue with elective courses and programs focusing

on how to organize value creation processes by building new organizations as well as taking on important societal challenges with an entrepreneurial approach.

 

InfoEdge Centre for Entrepreneurship is the creative hub at Ashoka University that nurtures the entrepreneurial endeavours of Students, Fellows, Faculty and Founders alike. The Centre is committed to assisting in every stage of the lifecycle of an enterprise– right from inspiration, ideation and initiation, to incubation, investments and internationalisation for both mainstream innovations as well as ventures around social innovation and sustainability. The Centre has a key focus on the role of educators and experts in fostering young entrepreneurs and innovative ideas.

 

The field of entrepreneurship education is driven by a whole ecosystem of interconnected stakeholders and partnerships including governments, NGOs businesses, schools and universities.
