Design Business Incubator


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.
