Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India

The Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDI), an autonomous and not-for-profit Institute, set up in 1983, is sponsored by apex financial institutions - the IDBI Bank Ltd., IFCI Ltd., ICICI Bank Ltd. and State Bank of India (SBI). The Government of Gujarat pledged twenty-three acres of land on which stands the majestic and sprawling EDI campus.

To pursue its mission further, EDI has helped set up twelve state-level exclusive entrepreneurship development centres and institutes. One of the most satisfying achievements, however, was taking entrepreneurship to a large number of schools, colleges, science and technology institutions and management schools in several states by including entrepreneurship inputs in their curricula. In view of EDI’s expertise in Entrepreneurship, the University Grants Commission appointed the EDI as an expert agency to develop curriculum on Entrepreneurship.
