An Introduction to GUSEC

The Gujarat University Startup and Entrepreneurship Council (GUSEC) supports startups, entrepreneurs and innovators in Gujarat, and facilitates the promotion of a culture and spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation across the university in order to sensitise over 3,50,000 enrolled students with 300+ affiliated institutes and 40+ academic departments of the university.

Through GUSEC, GU has pioneered:

  • Country’s first support system for non-tech innovations, as GU is primarily a university focussed on non-tech disciplines such as science, arts, commerce, law, medicine, etc.
  • ‘Research to Revenue’, the first of its kind initiative for a research university, with the aim of converting 5% of research into commercialised products, services or technology.
