The Centre for Sustainability, Anant National University, is inviting entrepreneurs for their one-year, full-time Entrepreneurs in Residence (EiR) programme. AnantU’s EiR programme is envisioned to help chosen entrepreneurs with either a well-fleshed out business idea or an existing business in the field of sustainability, affordable housing, building construction, real estate, climate change, design and prop-tech. The entrepreneurs will have the unique opportunity to leverage AnantU’s physical infrastructure in its Ahmedabad based campus, expertise and partnerships to scale up their business.
Under the EiR programme, Anant National University facilitates the development of participating companies, right from the stage of being a simple idea which would evolve into successful fully-functioning start-ups.
Speaking about the EiR programme, Dr Anunaya Chaubey, Provost AnantU, said, “The EIR program is designed to foster innovation in the build environment. The program assists young entrepreneurs in bringing their ideas to life through its comprehensive expertise of the field, academic resources, industry mentors, and collaborations. It will also enrich the entrepreneurial culture on campus and provide chances for students to witness startups up and close.”
The Anant Centre for Sustainability is a Think-Teach-Do tank that focuses on affordable housing, indigenous models of circular economy and building sustainable education campuses in India. The Centre publishes research reports, releases multimedia products and delivers relevant courses and projects related to sustainability.
