Foundation for MSME clusters

The Foundation for MSME Clusters was conceptualised to contribute towards the process of cluster based development of MSMEs and thus enhance their competitiveness, generate sustainable employment and alleviate poverty. At the suggestion of the Ministry of Small Scale Industries, Government of India, the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) conceptualised and initiated the process of creating the Foundation for MSME Clusters. Subsequently, the Foundation was legally constituted as a non-government, non-profit registered trust under the auspices of the Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDI), Ahmedabad, in the year 2005.

The institute has been awarded a project by DST to develop sustainable model for Innovation clusters. Under Phase-2, proposals are invited from entrepreneurs, academic and research institutes.
