Incubation & Entrepreneurship

Innovation and research often lead to prototypes, concepts, and ideas with immense potential, which can be incubated either at a campus/institution, or in an incubation lab elsewhere. A few of these might even move on to productization and head towards the marketplace. Each of these phases of evolution requires hand-holding, mentoring, and funding. CLEF joins hands with like-minded entities, corporates and funding agencies to promote such projects (both individual and institutional ones). We also play a proactive role in making the lab-to-funding-to-market transition a reality.

Activities and Impact
  • We have organized multiple editions of MeltingPot2020 conferences in Delhi, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Dubai, and Silicon Valley. MP2020 brings academia and industry on to the same platform. It also showcases innovation & research of promising Indian students and institutions to the corporate world and high net-worth individuals.
  • Annually, CLEF invests significantly in making the MeltingPot2020 conferences a compelling and productive one.
