NSRCEL is the hub of entrepreneurial activity at IIMB.

We bring incubated start-ups, co-working ventures, industry mentors, eminent academicians and researchers together at our centre. This unique ecosystem thrives on continuous interaction between theory and practise.

Further stimulus comes from our curated events and bespoke courses on Entrepreneurship. Promising early stage ventures get access to seed funding and distinguished mentors with years of industry experience.

Our activity is supported by Governmental, Corporate and other Institutional partners.

Our Purpose

It should come as no surprise that two thirds of all inventions come from small entrepreneurs. Such inventions not only create new products and services but also improve competitiveness by increased efficiencies & reduced costs.
They create new business models that leverage new technologies and reach out to a globalized market place. Creating and nurturing a favorable climate for entrepreneurship to flourish, therefore, becomes extremely critical for the growth of any economy.

N S Raghavan Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (NSRCEL) was founded at the prestigious business school IIM Bangalore to help create such a climate so that talented young men and women of India can transform their entrepreneurial aspirations to reality.

I also realized that apart from angel funding, start-up entrepreneurs had a critical need for mentoring on business aspects and also needed a network of the right connections to take their ideas forward.

I am happy to see that NSRCEL has incubated many successful start-ups and continues to attract talented youngsters eager to start new ventures.

I further felt that there was insufficient research on status of entrepreneurship development in India and the peculiar challenges and opportunities for its growth in the Indian context. I am happy that there has been a concerted effort to encourage such world-class research work at IIM Bangalore.

NSRCEL has also launched several entrepreneurship related courses. It is gratifying that some of these courses have attracted high quality students and have earned a reputation for their value and effectiveness.

I sincerely hope that the community of entrepreneurs in India in general and Bangalore in particular, will lend their whole-hearted support to the activities of NSRCEL in one way or the other and help in the growth of entrepreneurship in India.
