International Center for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (ICECD)
“To create a new cadre of Entrepreneurs, Managers and Specialized Professionals to foster the process of non-reversible socio-economic development on the global arena.”
ICECD has been the vanguard of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) Development amongst varying target groups and has worked extensively around the globe keeping gender issues in sharp focus. It has consistently striven to increase access/control of the poor on productive resources and facilities.
The Centre’s first task was to develop women for economic activities, thus starting the process of empowerment and influencing the national policy for their development. At one time, it was the only organization in India catering to the multi-faceted needs of developing women, enabling them to set up micro – small and medium enterprises.
