Description

The First International ISB-RAND conference on Entrepreneurship Policies



Greetings from ISB!


The Indian School of Business (ISB) is conducting a conference on the theme From Bottleneck to Catalysts of Entrepreneurship: Policies for Growth in collaboration with the RAND Corporation in the U.S.

The main objective of the Wadhwani Center for Entrepreneurship Development at ISB is to help create an effective ecosystem for broad based entrepreneurial development in India. Among other partnerships we currently have, ISB in partnership with RAND Corporation in the US is conducting joint research on entrepreneurial policies in India and on how to realign policies supporting entrepreneurs in India; the findings of which will be presented in the conference.
The RAND Corporation is a nonprofit global policy think tank working with several governments, private foundations, international organizations, and commercial organizations across the world.
The ISB-RAND Conference on Entrepreneurship is a unique opportunity that facilitates entrepreneurship deliberative discussion by bringing entrepreneurs, academia and policy makers together to debate and discuss entrepreneurial policies in India.
We believe that, a country's economic policy environment must be favorable for organizations to achieve efficiencies in today’s global market.
Policies framed to support certain economic issues in the past may not be relevant today or may not be applicable to entrepreneurs today. On the other hand, there might be certain policies that are working very well in certain industries.
How supportive is the ecosystem in India – do investors, the government, and society provide for a foundation on which entrepreneurs can grow and flourish?
As a precursor to the conference, we are having an online forum “Catalyst” for entrepreneurship deliberative discussion. ‘Catalyst’ asks you to question the present policies – question what encourages and what discourages entrepreneurs in their industry.
Log on, discuss and debate on www.isb.edu/wced/isb-randconference
This forum brings policy makers, industry, academia and entrepreneurs together to debate and evolve an effective, pragmatic and comprehensive set of policy recommendations to promote entrepreneurship in India.
We believe that education as well as the infrastructure ecosystem, aided by appropriate policies, can generate the next wave of great entrepreneurial activity in India. This conference will be concentrating on these two industry segments, that is;
• Entrepreneurship in effective Infrastructure Utilization – Policy Framework
• Entrepreneurship India’s Educational Sector – Policy Framework

This Conference is organized by the ‘The Indian School of Business’ which promotes Entrepreneurship in India through ‘The Wadhwani Center for Entrepreneurship Development’.
