The Gujarat Technological University (GTU) plans to offer space to start-ups on its campus by the end of this month. GTU had flagged off an ambitious virtual initiative called Student Start-up Support System (S4) last year to enable its students to turn entrepreneurs. Now,the S4 initiative will get 1,500 sq ft of space inside the L D College of Engineering in Ahmedabad.
We want to open a facility at our campus and start registering start-ups in the area of hardware and software technology, said GTU Vice Chancellor A K Aggarwal.
It is a decentralised start-up space where we will have three batches of students come and incubate their ideas. We will be looking at providing the students with mentorship support,equipment,technology and a number of co-creation workshops, said Yash Saxena,the honorary coordinator of GTUs S4 initiative.
