Strathclyde Business School & IIM Kashipur Partners For Entrepreneurship Conference
During the first day of the conference, academics from the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship will be delivering an Entrepreneurship Mindset workshop for SMEs and startups
The Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship at the University of Strathclyde Business School is partnering with the Foundation for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development at the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Kashipur to organise an entrepreneurship conference at IIM Kashipur on December 15-18, 2022.
This conference is aimed at developing understanding of this entrepreneurial ecosystem and its actors by bringing together scholars, entrepreneurs and other ecosystem actors working in the context.
Entrepreneurship in India is currently in an exponential growth phase and is seen as a centrepiece in the national government’s strategic vision of India becoming a 5 trillion dollar economy by 2026. The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor 2021/22 Report placed India among the top 5 economies for ease of starting a new business, with as many as 83 per cent of the respondents believing that there are good opportunities to start a business in their area which is second globally.
Amidst this rise in entrepreneurial activity, it is important to understand the key pillars of this entrepreneurial growth and the ecosystem developing around it which is why the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship is working with the Foundation for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development to organise the entrepreneurship conference.
During the first day of the conference, academics from the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship will be delivering an Entrepreneurship Mindset workshop for SMEs and startups. Several Scottish SMEs have benefitted from such focussed workshops that Strathclyde Business School offers through its Growth Advantage Programme. There will also be a strong focus on PhD students and early career researchers at the conference, through sessions such as Paper Development Workshops and Meet the Editors session.
