Indian School of Entrepreneurship looks forward to connecting with the investors community. High Net-worth Individuals (HNIs), Angel investors and Seed investors are the people we intend on connecting with. These individuals will play a key role in our educational ecosystem by providing the funds that are needed to startup a business. They can join us as either faculty, guides or mentors. Being in the ecosystem from the start would provide them with the opportunity to understand the different entrepreneurial ideas better. It would also give them the chance to choose the idea that interests them the most and invest in it.
