Centre of Excellence for Entrepreneurship

Centres of Excellence for Entrepreneurship are a critical support platform to incubate new entrepreneurs and hand-hold them to start new enterprises through training, provide access to experts, technology and other resources. It closely works with the R& D and innovation centres of the universities.


The CoEE help students to:

  • develop their entrepreneurial skill, acquire the skills that enable them to start business
  • refine their products or services, get the guidance to find their first customers
  • refine their business models and be able to establish their enterprise more quickly than if they were doing so on their own
