Winter School on Social


The Center for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CSIE) at IIT-Madras was founded in August 2010 with a focus on teaching and research related to social enterprise in India. It aims to bring together the innovation and entrepreneurship aspects of IITM by creating knowledge and understanding that will be of relevance to the problems that the poor in India face.


Why Social Entrepreneurship at IIT Madras?

IIT Madras has been involved in the field of social entrepreneurship since 2002, when it partnered with the Lemelson Foundation’s RAMP program for social entrepreneur, as well as Villgro Innovations Foundation, a Chennai-based social business incubator.
