Design Business Incubator

Entrepreneurship

The Business Incubation Cell at ARCH was inaugurated on 2nd March 2017 by Ms. Kiran Maheshwari, the Rajasthan Minister for Higher Education. It facilitates the necessary mentoring, & networking connections required to help foster the development of scalable business models based on transformational designs and innovative thinking, and to achieve commercial success through ‘start- up’ enterprises.

From the ideation stage to preparing a prototype, & through to the pilot stage, to start production, the incubation cell aims to nurture a culture of entrepreneurship in the creative minds of young designers, so that their ideas metamorphose into new products or services suitable for commercial utilization.
