Institutes of Entrepreneurship Development (IEDs)/ Centres of Entrepreneurship Development (CEDs): EDII’s support to them

EDII, as a National Resource Institute in the area of entrepreneurship education, research, training and institution-building has been instrumental in setting up state-level IEDs and CEDs, thus ensuring that the entrepreneurship ecosystem gets an extra hand in strengthening the premise of entrepreneurship in society.

EDII training and development models, programmes, teaching/training pedagogy and course curriculum are conceived and developed after comprehensive scanning and research of the environment. For strengthening entrepreneurship far and wide, the learning and the findings are disseminated to State Institutions through conferences, seminars and workshops. Thus, the Institute ensures continuous capacity building of IEDs/CEDs through a variety of interventions.  Some of the major areas in which EDII provides support to IEDs/CEDs include;


  • The role of ED Institutions in policy advocacy
