Welcome to IA's Campus Entrepreneurship Program: A collaboration between Academia, Startups and Industry to foster research, catalyze innovation, drive entrepreneurship and create a thriving startup ecosystem. India Accelerator’s Campus Entrepreneurship Program (CEP) identifies student entrepreneurs with distinctive startup ideas to nurture them into fully functioning enterprises. IA CEP incubates grassroots startups with dedicated and domain-specific mentorship, tech-administration and infrastructural support in preparation for seed-stage funding. Entrepreneurship is about personal development, creativity, self-reliance, initiative taking, action orientation, i.e. becoming entrepreneurial. Putting entrepreneurship education into practice has however posed significant challenges. Here is an approach we take or help embellish at your campus: - “about” entrepreneurship - a content-laden and theoretical approach aiming to give a general understanding - “for” entrepreneurship – a practical oriented approach aiming at giving budding entrepreneurs the requisite knowledge and skills - “through” - focusing on action, experiences from the real world, and reflection This approach often leans on the wider definition of entrepreneurship. A wider definition of entrepreneurship helps students with personal development, creativity, self-reliance, initiative-taking, and action orientation, i.e. becoming entrepreneurial in whichever field and way they choose forward in their professional life. While there is a focus on creating a successful idea and possibly helping scale the idea, the intent is for students to learn and implement the process and methods that can help them in their entrepreneurial journey.
