Nurturing Dreams

IWSB, an initiative of the Career Launcher Education Foundation is itself a product of an entrepreneurial dream. The entrepreneurial ethos is at the heart of the foundational principles of IWSB. This entrepreneurial spirit is embodied in our core values of Risk Taking, Openness, Ownership, Honesty and Commitment, and Innovation. The school through its Incubation Centre envisages promoting the values of entrepreneurial leadership, with the aim to nurture, harness and bringing to life entrepreneurial ideas among the student community and also facilitating such opportunities in the country at large. Srijan’09 is our first initiative to provide a springboard to those numerous entrepreneurial ideas across the whole country. The winning start?up ideas of the day will begin their entrepreneurial journey with us and travel the distance between the generation of a brilliant idea to becoming a successful enterprise. We plan to make Srijan a yearly activity and thus realize our dream to foster an entrepreneurial society in our country.
