 About the Centre


CIEC is an incubator for nano and micro enterprises. It leverages Centurion University's industry level production facilities/labs, 3D printing infrastructure, digital design lab and research outputs created by various research centres to encourage and nurture entrepreneurs. It also promotes entrepreneurship development among the students, faculty members, and the community around its Campuses. It also has a multi-seat co-working space that currently hosts eight ventures at various stages of their development. CIEC is supported by Government of Odisha, Start-up Odisha program and a network of mentors. Under its aegis, Centurion University has partnered with FICCI-FLO (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry's women wing) for a specifically women-entrepreneurs targeted program in Odisha. This program is expected to nurture women entrepreneurs by connecting them with mentors as well as supporting them to gain access to capital and creating market linkages.


CIEC has built an ecosystem that encourages and supports students and faculty with their start-ups by offering co-working space, common facilities centres, state-of-the-art workshops and laboratories. The infrastructure combined with its unique model of education aims at inculcating a scientific temper among its students to encourage entrepreneurship through action and experiential learning. The success of this endeavour is proven through the several start-ups (led by students) on the Campus. CIEC is a partner Incubation hub of Govt of Odisha Start-Up initiative through which it promotes entrepreneurship among students and other potential nano-mini-micro entrepreneurs. It assists start-ups at all stages towards becoming independent and productive.
