Aims of the Center
The Center for Entrepreneurship Development (CED), FORE set up in 2010, aims to inculcate the spirit of Entrepreneurship amongst Management students by helping them to develop an Entrepreneurial Mindset. It works towards creating a conducive ecosystem for the students to develop their creative ideas into brilliant business plans such that they are motivated to come up with their own start-ups.
Goals of the Center
The Center carries out a calendar full of activities related to entrepreneurship round the year. It ranges from success stories of start-ups, seminars, workshops like “Idea Generation to Business Plan” and Intra and Inter college competitions. For the last few years the winners of the Intra college B- Plan competition have been winning various B- Plan competitions hosted by other colleges & Institutes. The Center has also been helping the students in getting live projects, summer internship and final placement offers from Entrepreneurs and start- up founders. In the near future, the Center aspires to start an incubation Center.
To further strengthen the entrepreneurial activities at FORE, under the guidance of CED Advisory Committee, CED FORE is looking forward to collaborate and tie up with many Investor Forums, Industry, Government and Non- Government Organizations and striving to set up an Incubation Centre in the next few years.
