The Ministry of Education, in collaboration with the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), has launched the 'Ministry of Education – AICTE Investor Network' to promote innovation and entrepreneurship in the education sector. This initiative aims to provide financial support, mentoring, and strategic guidance to early-stage startups led by students or faculty members. It also seeks to encourage private investment in these startups and bridge the gap between investors and educational initiatives. A 10-member steering committee, chaired by Dr. Abhay Jere, has been established to facilitate the onboarding of investors and oversee the implementation of the initiative. Overall, the network aligns with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision of creating a vibrant ecosystem for innovation and entrepreneurship in India.
