To help build up a technology entrepreneurship ecosystem, CTIE followed a two pronged model. The first is to encourage external entrepreneurs with a good business plan and cultural fit to start their business on BVB campus. This enabled quick ramping up of companies with commercial interest that served as a beacon to engage students in a variety of collaborative activities. Alumni of BVB responded to this call effectively and many businesses made CTIE as their home. Simple and no-strings-attached policies of CTIE helped to attract serial entrepreneurs and young engineers to build their ventures.
The second path focused on building the pipeline of eligible students who are open enough to experience career of an entrepreneur. A good mix of credit based and non-credit activities were undertaken as a part of this approach.
