    Very good ambition. Well, getting admission in IIM is not a cake walk. I guess you know this very well. Forget about what you want to do in MBA, i.e., Entrepreneurship, keep it aside for now.

    Only thing you should consider now is to get a seat in IIM. So for that based upon your category you should get a good score in CAT exam.

    If you belong to reserved categories then 95+ %ile would get you good calls from IIMs else you need to get minimum of 98%ile to 100 %ile. for sure admission. There are some cases who got admission in IIMs with just 89%ile or so. But that is very rare. Lets consider the worst situation. Even though being pessimistic is not encouraged. Its CAT so we cannot take chances.

    One more interesting thing is you are just First Year student. So all you need to concentrate is upon two things now.
    > get good percentage in b.tech
    > concentrate on basic mathematics and english which are very important for CAT.

    Coming to the starting time for preparation is second year ending or third year beginning. While you are in third year/fourth year join in coaching classes. Say TIME in your city. Attempt while you are in 4th year. If you can succeed, well and good. else, prepare hard for next six months and crack it.

    Then you will step into your dream institute. Good luck.
