GTU Innovation CouncilEdit

GTU established the 'GTU Innovation Council' at ACPC Building, LD Campus in the year 2013. GTU Innovation Council, also known as GIC, is headed by Hiranmay Mahanta. The aim of the GTU Innovation council is to facilitate student startups by providing necessary facilities, organizing workshops, helping students to find relevant mentors, and other activities weekly. GIC also conducts workshops on Training the professors, Flash Ventures, Social Entrepreneurship Bootcamp, Design Thinking and Ideation workshops.[8] GIC established a separate wing of IP Clinic, which helps students to easily patent their innovative ideas and projects. GIC also looks after GTU's UDP program, which authenticates Final year student projects, on quality and genuineness perspectives. Thus it will give them relevant ideas.

GTU Innovation Council took the momentum when they launched the Crowdfunding Initiator program in association with Start51, an indigenous crowd-funding platform in India. Crowdfunding Initiator (CFI) is aimed to help student startups with necessary guidance and funding. About 70 student startups from around Gujarat enrolled, out of which only a few projects were selected for the one-month-long Bootcamp.[9] This Bootcamp which was organized from 16 June 2014 to 12 July 2014, was divided into four-part: Ideation, Incentive Model, Pitch Presentation and Funding.[10] By the end of Bootcamp, Crowdfunding Initiator successfully took 8 projects to live on a dedicated crowdfunding portal for funding.[11]
