Innovation, Venturing & Entrepreneurship in India Network
- A confluence of factors has resulted in India becoming one of the key centres globally for start-ups and innovation.
- In the last decade, Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Venturing has captured the attention of policy makers.
- As a result of these, there has been a fillip to the start-up activity in the country. Formulation of start-up policies, setting up of incubation centres, growth in investments, and focus on entrepreneurship in academic curricula, have led to an increase in the number of start-ups.
- However, growth of ventures and entrepreneurship in India so far has been predominantly led by policy and practice.
- Academic research and thinking can play an important role in sustaining and furthering this growth in entrepreneurship. Insights and evidence from academic research would support policy making as well as increase the effectiveness of managerial and investment decision making in entrepreneurship.
- iVEIN Network, a consortium of leading academic institutions in India, can be the missing piece in the entrepreneurial jigsaw puzzle.
- This cross-institutional network can be the glue that bridges the different stakeholders in venturing and entrepreneurship, and more importantly create new knowledge that stands the test of academic rigour that is so critical to sustain our success in the innovation economy.
- Create an interdisciplinary body of knowledge that synthesizes multiple perspectives would meet the requirements of policy makers, academia and researchers, entrepreneurs, investors, innovators, students, and those interested in innovation and ventures.
- To track the contours of the vibrant innovation, venturing and entrepreneurship segment in the country and develop a holistic and analytical narrative on the dynamics that drive the development in these areas
- Help in effective policy formulation at multiple levels; develop thought leadership for practice
- Seed the creation of an academic society that will organize annual conferences, create a journal, and architect a data repository in the areas of innovation and entrepreneurship.
