One of the mandates of the Institute is to help institutionalize entrepreneurship at the national as well as international levels.
Institutes of Entrepreneurship Development/ Centres of Entrepreneurship Development:
As EDII moved on to adopt the role of a national resource institute in the field, it realised the need to create a network of ED institutions that could adopt this activity and make it widespread. This institutionalisation also enabled EDII to make a decisive dent into other areas backed by further research. Today, together with three other exclusive national institutions, it is successfully backing about 12 state level entrepreneurship organizations that are, in turn, supported by EDII – trained over 1000 entrepreneur trainer – motivators, 600 NGO functionaries for creating micro-enterprises and over 1500 teachers teaching entrepreneurship courses in colleges and universities in India and abroad.
