Innovation And Entrepreneurship Development Centre
The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre (IEDC) is an initiative of The Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM). The prime objective is to develop an institutional mechanism to create entrepreneurial culture in academic institutions and to foster the growth of innovation and entrepreneurship among the faculty and students.
Every year the Centre provides financial support to a good number of students for developing innovative products. Up to one lakh rupees is made available for each idea. Apart from this financial support we are providing mentoring for good projects. Also this centre arranges many classes and camps to promote technology-based innovation and entrepreneurship among the students.
