TEP Overview

Technology Entrepreneurship Programme (TEP) is a one-year programme offered by the Indian School of Business, and is tailored specifically to build entrepreneurial orientation among young engineering students, to enable them to make the best of knowledge resources. The idea is to imbibe “business” skills to engineering college students and orient them towards entrepreneurship by imbibing “soft” business skills. The initiative also inculcates hard business skills to create and manage new ventures using design thinking and practical tools for translating engineering to commercial products.

The primary goals are to foster an entrepreneurial mindset in engineering students; and mentor and support students. TEP is made up of both instructional and practical components that help engineering students put their technical skills into practice. As students progress through the programme, they also acquire the tools and methodologies that are useful to solve real-world problems. TEP has a network of mentors from the technology, design and business sectors, who actively guide students through the various phases of the programme.

The primary goals of TEP are:

  • Foster entrepreneurial mindset in engineering students
  • Link entrepreneurial and innovative behaviour to education and career pathways
  • Mentor and support students to launch their own ventures
  • Provide an environment experience for engineering students to create investable technology based startups.
