About Us

EMPRESARIO is an annual inter-collegiate entrepreneurship festival organized by the students of Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India, Ahmedabad. It is a unique platform for Creators, Entrepreneurs, Industry Mentors, Investors and the Students to gather at one place and share their entrepreneurial endeavours and experiences, and pledge to create a thriving startup ecosystem in India.

EMPRESARIO was first held in 2012, and has since grown into one of the largest entrepreneurship festivals in India. The festival is held over two days every February, attracting participants from every corner of the country.


The focus of the event is to rapidly scale-up the start-up ecosystem in Gujarat (and India, at large) by supporting and collaborating with inspiring businesses, foundations, investors and individuals who are leading the way with market-oriented approaches to global development.
