In the Year 2015, Wadhwani Centre of Excellence for Innovation has been set up at the University in partnership with National Entrepreneurship Network (NEN) and Wadhwani Foundation to promote entrepreneurship and innovations among students of several dozen management and engineering schools located in various parts of Rajasthan.
The MoU was signed by Mr. Shashi Shimala, Executive VP, NEN Wadhwani Foundation, and Er. Gaurav Bagaria, Director, VGU in gracious presence of Shri Atma Ram Ji, Chairman, ARG and Mr. Ajay Data, MD, Data Infosys Ltd and many more.
CoE at VGU is helping in bringing the much needed ecosystem of Mentors, Angel Investors, Venture Capitalists and Support Services needed by budding entrepreneurs to test ideas, tweak business plans and to move pilot projects into scalable businesses.
The Wadhwani Center of Excellence at the University is aiming to accelerate the creation of entrepreneurs from a large pool of budding entrepreneurs from engineering and business schools as well as small and growing businesses all over North India. Through partnership with NEN and Wadhwani Foundation, the existing Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University gets closer to its ambition of creating and implementing entrepreneurship capacity building programs for students, alumni and early stage start-ups.
The Centre aims to empower job seekers with ideas, passion and entrepreneurial skills with knowledge and experience of its network to become job creators as they sow the seeds of successful businesses. The CoE is serving as a link between industry, successful entrepreneurs and the mentees which is the main focus of this collaboration.
