An important step in this direction has been undertaken by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MoSDE) by instituting the annual National Entrepreneurship Awards (NEA) last year. These Awards aim to boost entrepreneurship development in the country by recognizing and honoring the young entrepreneurs and ecosystem builders across the country for their outstanding contribution. The NEA comprising of 17 Awards for Young Entrepreneurs and 6 Awards of Ecosystem Builders have been carefully conceptualized to enable participation of first generation entrepreneurs and ecosystem builders across sectors, geographies and socio-economic background. The purpose is to celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship and highlight models of excellence for others to emulate and improve upon.
In partnership with the premier academic institutions in the country, TISS Mumbai is leading the process for the selection of the Winners of National Entrepreneurship Awards 2017 (NEA-2017). The awardees will be felicitated in an Awards Ceremony on 9th November 2017. The Awardees will be awarded a Trophy, Certificate and the Cash Prize of INR 10 lakh (organizations) and INR 5 lakh (individuals/enterprises). The call for application is already open from July 28th 2017 till September 15th 2017.
