CIIE.CO is The Innovation Continuum for the Changemakers. This continuum spreads from incubation, acceleration, seed and growth funding and research.

Founded at IIM Ahmedabad in 2002, as an academic center, CIIE.CO has grown and pivoted to include acceleration, incubation, investment, research, and publication. Overall, it has aimed at filling the multiple, ever-evolving gaps in the Indian innovation-driven entrepreneurship space in many ways. Among various initiatives, CIIE.CO has conceptualized and hosted India's first accelerator, created India's first and so far the only cleantech-focused fund, accelerated over 600 entrepreneurs, funded over 130 startups, inspired over 700,000 with our publication - Stay Hungry Stay Foolish.

All the initiatives on the innovation continuum are aimed at supporting fearless, innovation-driven entrepreneurs. Working with like-minded partners like corporates, government agencies, investors and academia, helps CIIE.CO push harder towards co-creating exponential change.
