That was an exhaustive list, but we at IIT Roorkee also have an incubation cell named STEP.
I am the secretary of the students body Entrepreneurship Development Cell, which promotes entrepreneurship amongst the students of IITR.
I would highly appreciate if you mend the list and add our name too on that list.
Thank you

IIMC just has a cell driven by a lone faculty member. One man show. There is no incubation center at IIM Calcutta. IIMC, on the whole, is not very positive for entrepreneurship.

Prof. Satyajit Majumdar

Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), Mumbai offers 2 Years – Full Time Post Graduate Programme in ‘Social Entrepreneurship’. The Institute will soon set up an Incubation Center. Similar Programme will also be launched at the Hyderabad Campus with focus on ‘technology for social change’.

Hi there,
I am Amul Bhute, we have started our Software and Web site Development operations from our home but now we are in need of more space and improved infrastructure but we cannot afford to buy or build any. In this regard how can STPI, or any other authority/Institution can help me out with their incubation Center. It will be more beneficial for us if you can tell specifically about Nagpur(Maharashtra), information regarding any other place will also do.

thanks and regards,
Amul B.
