IIM Ahmedabad's Centre for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE) fosters innovation driven entrepreneurship in India through incubation, investment and training. CIIE's incubation and investment activities received an impetus in 2007 following the creation of a dedicated physical infrastructure with support from IIM Ahmedabad, Government of India and the Gujarat Government and setting up of an autonomous entity (called CIIE Initiatives) for CIIE's incubation and investment activities. Apart from incubating and investing in over 50 innovative ventures across the high-tech sector, CIIE has taken up several initiatives to strengthen India's entrepreneurial ecosystem by providing mentoring, financial and knowledge inputs..
