About the Company:
In 2018, our excitement levels knew no bounds as we completed 10 years of incorporation of — CIIE Initiatives. Through our publication, 10 years of innovation and experiments we wrote extensively about our journey over this decade — starting as an academic research centre, but evolving into multiple different directions; all aimed at fostering innovation in India — whether through pioneering accelerators, state-of-the-art incubation infra, riskiest catalytic capital, scale-up capital, or action-oriented insights. Over this last decade, conceptually and legally speaking, from being an academic ‘centre’ at IIMA, we have become a continuum of initiatives catalyzing India’s innovation landscape.
We back fearless entrepreneurs building disruptive solutions. We stand with the startups at their risky early stages, when they need most support while there is hardly any available. Through the continuum of incubation, acceleration, capital, insights – we give everything it takes for these driven entrepreneurs to make a superlative impact.
