iVEIN 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. https://doms.iitm.ac.in/iVEIN/
