Sponsored By All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE)

Ministry of HRD, Government of India

It is the policy goal of the Government of India to develop a culture of entrepreneurial thinking among the students. The Entrepreneurship Development Center (EDC) at Asian School of Business Management (ASBM) Bhubaneswar is established in association and accordance with the All India Council of Technical Education Government of India. The EDC at ASBM is a conglomeration of individuals with a vision, dream and passion. It is a place where the dreams of the young minds can be transformed into reality. We will not only show you the doors of opportunity but we will also equip you to make you walk through it. Strategically placed in a leading Business Management School at the heart of the capital of the industrially emerging state Orissa, gives it a bird's eye view of both, the students and the corporate. With fullfledged support from the ASBM the Cell finds itself as a wind of change that will transform the young minds from seeking employment to become employers.

We envisioned ASBM ED-Cell as a platform where if any entity of ASBM community comes for any kind of help at any stage of harnessing his entrepreneurship quest, it must be able to provide him/her with right kind of resources or at least it must be able to guide him/her to the right path. We stepped further with the ideology of educating, mentoring and providing enterprising resources to budding entrepreneurs. In light of this we established Advisory Body, Faculty Panels and a strong network of Knowledge Mentors. We are continuously updating ourselves with the latest needs of our target audiences and trying our best to meet their expectations.


The center aims at nurturing the latent Entrepreneurial spirit of young students. If you have the entrepreneurial spark, we make sure that it bursts. It intends to pierce the corporate veil, to let the budding entrepreneurs get a feel of how the corporate world takes it birth.
