14 Oct A program for every stage: CIE IIITH offers 360 degrees support to Early stage startups
With more and more number of ideas and sprouting Entrepreneurial mindsets, we are witnessing a large influx of startups from every sector and domain, especially technology-based ventures. Though the ideas generating every minute indicates a growing number of early ventures, 9 out of 10 of these fail and wither in the first few years. The rate is even
staggering in the first year of idea inception.
When statistically the risk is this high, there is a sound need for supporting business creation at different startup development phases and the founders from nothing to success. Accommodating this objective CIE IIITH design and redesign different programs based on the evolving needs of early-stage startups from idea to their first seed round of funding.
