The Entrepreneurship program intends to help IIT Alumni and their friends in exploring entrepreneurship opportunities in various industry sectors that exist in today’s globally networked world.
Participants committed to finding creative business, technology and social solutions are always looking for answers that are beyond educational programs. There are always new ideas and the ability to transform an idea into something tangible, one that can create an impact, is an entirely different game. A typical question for an entrepreneur is ‘how can I go about doing this’?
The program will be of interest for those who plan to have their own start-up, those who have existing businesses and would like to expand by creating new products or going to new markets and also for those who are employed and are finding new and game-changing solutions within their organizations. The program is for both entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs.
In addition to interactive lectures, workshops, training and mentoring will be provided. The program will provide participants guidance on the opportunities available in the Canadian eco-system as we build partnerships with various organizations. Collaboration between India and Canada is of interest to many IIT Alumni members.
This program will be of interest to Indian entrepreneurs exploring Canada as well as Canadian entrepreneurs exploring India as market. Amongst various topics, the Start-Up visa is of special interest to Indian Entrepreneurs who wish to migrate to Canada. There are a number of upcoming entrepreneur eco-systems and incubators in India. Some IITs have established incubators and the opportunities of partnership with start-up organizations are in plenty.
