91springboard has been committed to the growth of the entrepreneurial ecosystem since inception through various channels and efforts. Their latest venture is in the field of education for entrepreneurs where they identified a glaring gap. College education and management degrees are inadequate at preparing entrepreneurs for their journey. Besides there are many skill gaps for which entrepreneurs have no place to go.


The aim of 91university launched under the auspices of 91springboard in collaboration with Salil Agrawal aims to understand the learning needs of the entrepreneurs and fill this gap by providing meaningful and relevant education and training. They are also keen to provide custom designed courses to meet the needs of specific people.

… course is insightful for someone who is considering entrepreneurship or has already taken the plunge …

Launch of the second course

After an overwhelming response to their first course, the second edition of the Foundation course for Entrepreneurs will begin on November 5th at their Gurgaon location. Mr. Salil Agrawal, Course Director of 91unversity believes that “today’s college education does not deliver the practical knowledge necessary to succeed. In an environment where the government is keen to promote entrepreneurship and a scenario where a significant number of youngsters are wanting to become entrepreneurs even before they finish college, the foundation course is a holistic course that will help these entrepreneurs prepare themselves and improve their chances of success. We are committed to partnering with them in their journey.”
