Chairperson's Message

On behalf of the Centre for Excellence- Entrepreneurship, I would like to welcome all of you to our centre.  The mission of the Centre for Excellence- Entrepreneurship (COE-E), VES Institute of Management (VESIM) is to promote business growth through networking, mentoring and education, extending the COE-E experience.   The key objective of the centre is to facilitate students aspiring to embark on entrepreneurial journeys.
The emerging competitive scenario calls for a greater thrust on entrepreneurship. The discipline needs to be promoted widely to ensure that the incidence of self-employment increases and also to give a definite direction of growth to existing entrepreneurs. Centre for Excellence- Entrepreneurship (COE-E), VES Institute of management, Mumbai has been committed to innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship since its establishment. The alumni of VESIM have set a track record of high value ventures. Entrepreneurship takes root at early stages through the various student driven committees, events and programmes in the campus – in the classrooms and outside the campus.
The recently launched initiatives of, Start up India, Stand up India, and, Make in India, are few significant ones dedicated to giving prominence to entrepreneurship in the country. Centre for Excellence –Entrepreneurship Cell enthusiastically continue to investigate entrepreneurs to come out with market worthy solutions.  

It feels good to communicate with the entrepreneurship fraternity in particular and the society at large on how entrepreneurship is important to complement policies and fetch sustainable results.
Job creation and economic growth are the two primary outcomes of entrepreneurship promotion. VESIM efforts have ensured enhanced skill levels, improved access to capital, and a responsive network to ensure growth of enterprises.

Another important landmark, work VESIM has started is working and promoting social entrepreneurs. VESIM has been promoting interaction between social entrepreneurs with the students to promote sustainable economic development, thus renewing people's conviction in entrepreneurship and also leading to social development. 

VESIM is working in a mission to nurture and promote entrepreneurship, I am happy that the Institute has realised this responsibility and has taken effective measures to push entrepreneurship culture in the campus.
