Encyclopedia for new and first time Indian Entrepreneurs


When I read about National Entrepreneurship Network (NEN) on WebYantra, I headed straight for the site. I spend nearly an hour on NEN site after registering and still could not feed my appetite with the wealth of information they had. I am surprised that I had not stumbled across them till now.

If you are a first time Indian entrepreneur, this place has all information you will ever need and much more. Lets have a look.


What is NEN ?

The National Entrepreneurship Network (NEN), founded in 2002, is a not-for-profit initiative of the Wadhwani Foundation, working to inspire, educate and support the next generation of high-growth entrepreneurs in India.

National Entrepreneur Network Logo NEN was co-founded by five of India’s premier academic institutions: IIT Bombay; IIM Ahmedabad; SP Jain Institute, Bombay; IBAB, Bangalore and BITS Pilani. Over the past three years, NEN’s focus on introducing a new paradigm in entrepreneurship education in India — and its innovative method of doing so — has made it its leading catalyst on campuses across India.

NEN’s ultimate goal is to help launch thousands of new entrepreneurs, who in turn will create hundreds of thousands of much-needed valuable jobs for India.
