Dean’s Message

Prof. V.B. Khanapuri

Welcome to the Centre of Innovation and Incubation of IIM Mumbai.

New ideas for innovation grow out of the minds of each new generation. Having an institution of higher learning that can help the young generation put those ideas into action is critical. CIIE aims to nurture an entrepreneurial mindset in the students and air an innovative streak into them. CIIE aims to be a holistic ecosystem to foster innovation, creativity, and the spirit of entrepreneurship. To provide the solution to complex challenges that humanity faces.

The Post-Pandemic VUCA world has brought a new paradigm, the new normal is being predicted as the new social order. The need-driven technological innovations seem to be coming to the fore to address the new challenges of the changing world. The vision of CIIE is to create a nurturing and safe environment to foster creativity and innovation among students and to educate and nudge them to bring their ideas into reality and fulfill their entrepreneurial ambitions.

CIIE will be the beacon to innovators and provide mentoring to the future leaders not only during the duration of their program but build a lifelong relationship, to make innovators self-reliant in getting seed funding and equity capital by providing technical financial, marketing, and legal support to incubate their ideas. Centre has more than ____square feet of space available for start-ups. Start-ups will be mentored not only by eminent faculty members of the Institute but also by volunteering experienced senior executives from the hinterland. The start-ups will also have access to the state-of-the-art laboratories of the institute to tinker with their innovative ideas.

The aim is to create Job providers who will have the potential of becoming the future innovators and industry stalwarts and who will further propagate innovative culture. I cordially invite the innovators to come forward and let their imagination run wild in blooming their nascent ideas into the landmark commercial product/processes of tomorrow and fulfilling the dream of Aatmanirbhar Bharat.
