India aspires to become 5 trillion-dollar economy by 2024. To reach the mark, it needs to evolve systems and mechanisms to convert the present demographic dividend into high quality technical human resource capable of doing cutting edge research and innovation and deep-tech entrepreneurship.

The guidelines provide ways for developing entrepreneurial agenda, managing IntellectualProperty Rights (IPR) ownership, technology licensing and equity sharing in Startups or enterprisesestablished by faculty and students.
