JSiE offers guidance and resources to early-stage startup entrepreneurs. JSiE is the incubation partner to the Central Tibetan Administration and has dedicated programs for students of O.P. Jindal Global University.
JSiE is a member of UBI Global Incubation Network and the Global Social Entrepreneurship Network.
The Tibetan community-in-exile, considered one of the most successful refugee communities in the world, is situated in the rapidly growing economy of India. However, Tibetan entrepreneurs have found it difficult to expand their businesses outside local settlement communities and unemployment rates remain stubbornly high. The Tibetan government-in-exile has recognized the need for change and is dedicated to catalyzing an entrepreneurial culture within the Tibetan community.
JSiE has hosted three incubation cycles as an incubation partner to the Tibetan Entrepreneurship Development initiative program. Tibetan entrepreneurs can create significant economic and social impact in their communities. Supporting them helps create an economically self-reliant Tibetan community in India, and in turn, helps preserve the unique and compassion-based Tibetan cultural heritage.
The JSiE team of faculty and students from across the schools of the O.P. Jindal Global University lend their expertise in the areas of business model development, marketing, product management, digital media, and legal services. Alumni of the program have founded enterprises ranging from a Tibetan clothing line to an IT services company, many with the aim of supporting the Tibetan community in India through employment opportunities, skill development, and cultural preservation and promotion.Learn More News Coverage
