Entrepreneurship culture is of key importance to Chitkara University. With the vision “To promote entrepreneurial spirit amongst youth, researchers, engineers and society at large by promoting cutting edge technology & non -technology start-ups which will lead to economic and social development of the country” Chitkara University has opened its first incubator “Chitkara Innovation Incubator Foundation (CIIF)” in the year 2013 which provided a platform to the budding startups, innovators & entrepreneurs of the region.
