Startup Oasis is a Jaipur based incubation centre that is developing an ecosystem in Rajasthan to inspire and support students, aspiring entrepreneurs and start-ups to solve persistent problems, develop breakthrough innovations and create world class enterprises. Startup Oasis has been set-up at the joint initiative of RIICO (http://www.riico.co.in/), Rajasthan’s premiere industrial promotion organization, and the Centre for Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE) (http://www.ciieindia.org/) at IIM Ahmedabad, India’s leading incubation and entrepreneurship centre. RIICO and CIIE felt the need to tap into the pool of traditional Rajasthani entrepreneurship and use the joint expertise of RIICO and CIIE to channelize the entrepreneurial energies to foster creativity and innovations in order to solve some of the most obstinate problems of the state and the country.
Since its inception in 1969, the Rajasthan State Industrial Development and Investment Corporation Ltd. (RIICO) has made a significant contribution towards the state's industrial transformation. RIICO provides a unique package of services to investors/entrepreneurs for large, medium and small-scale projects.
IIM Ahmedabad's Centre for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE) fosters innovation driven entrepreneurship in India through incubation, investment and training.
CIIE's incubation and investment activities received an impetus in 2007 following the creation of a dedicated physical infrastructure with support from IIM Ahmedabad, Government of India and the Gujarat Government and setting up of an autonomous entity (called CIIE Initiatives) for CIIE's incubation and investment activities. Apart from incubating and investing in over 50 innovative ventures across the high-tech sector, CIIE has taken up several initiatives to strengthen India's entrepreneurial ecosystem by providing mentoring, financial and knowledge inputs.
We comprise of faculty, alumni and students of IIMA, mentors and service providers from the industry who span a variety of functional areas, sectoral domains and geographies and are passionately committed to helping disruptive innovations and aspiring entrepreneurs succeed commercially.
