The Centre carries out cutting edge research in the area of entrepreneurship. It also undertakes consulting assignments by way of supporting start-ups. For this the Centre looks forward to establishing an Incubation Centre. Short-term training programmes for the entrepreneurs will also be organized in the near future.
