IEDC- KSUM (Kerala State Startup Mission)

Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre (IEDC) is a flagship initiative of Kerala Startup Mission to promote innovation and entrepreneurship among the student and academic fraternity in the educational institutions in the State of Kerala and considered as an umbrella programme that would play an instrumental role in fostering innovation culture in Academic institutions. The objectives of IEDC are:

  • To promote an innovation driven entrepreneurship culture among the students.
  • To develop and promote commercially viable innovative product and solution from the students.
  • To promote enterprise among budding techno-preneurs and thereby creating more employment opportunities.
  • To bridge the gap between Industry and Academia.
  • To support the budding Entrepreneurs through Grants and to create an entrepreneurship flavour in the academic fraternity.

KMEA IEDC was established in 2015, and presently it has emerged as a strong platform for our students to develop soft skills, technical skills, new ideas, etc. A number of programmes have been organised on a monthly basis to promote student startups, patents, and entrepreneurship. Also, IEDC funds quality projects to convert student ideas into prototypes.
We have a strong executive committee that is responsible for planning and conducting the events. Presently, more than 250 students are members of the IEDC KMEA. In 2022, IEDC KMEA has been placed at 4th position in the Innovators’ Premier League 2.0.
