Message from the Chairman

Shri Atul Garg,
Hon’ble Minister of State of Food and Civil supplies,
Rent control, Consumer protection, Govt. of U.P.

Entrepreneur is the growth indicator of any country and to spread Entrepreneurial culture in any society Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Incubation are very effective tools. The GDP of any country is the growth indicator and this depend on the number of enterprise, product developed, employment generated and value of currency. In last four year India has shown remarkable growth in the area of entrepreneurship by way of innovative scheme viz. Startup India, Make in India, Made in India and Standup India. I would like to share that our global rank in innovation was earlier 87 now which came down to 57 and expecting to down it 36 rank within one year. All this shows that we are moving in right direction and able to create a developed country.

Further I take our population as an opportunity to explore the possibilities and create new ventures to provide services and goods thereby make life of general masses more comfortable.

In this regard TBI-KIET has taken an initiative a decade back to establish and spread the message of entrepreneurship among the students of the college. We implemented a policy in 2004 “Earn While Learn” and the result motivated us to establish dedicated Entrepreneurship Cell. This cell upgraded to Technology Business Incubator in 2007. Since inception Technology Business Incubator has shown remarkable growth in terms of creating 52 companies to start their venture by First generation entrepreneurs. Our successful journey has been appreciated by DST, Govt. of India and in 2017 they have given new responsibilities of their flagship programme viz. NIDHI-EIR & NIDHI-PRAYAS. In 2018 NITI Ayog, Govt. of India has shortlisted us to strengthen Established Incubator under Atal Innovation Mission a dram project of Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi.

I believe that TBI-KIET will set a new benchmark to promote student driven First generation entrepreneurs by creating conducive environment, networking and mentoring support to the startup.

My vision is to make passionate & energetic youth to be own boss and become job provider instead of job seeker. All this is possible by the support of all stake holders and commitment of core team of TBI & GM, TBI.

I wish you all a great success ahead.
