Important Dates & Deadlines

Abstract Submission Deadline: September 15, 2019 | First Early Bird Registration Deadline: September 30, 2019


Academic Entrepreneurship

Academic entrepreneurship is a dynamic field which is at the growing phase. It’s the destiny of the future students to tackle some of the society’s most important challenges. Entrepreneurs do have the power to shape the world by developing a set of skill sets which are versatile and are profitable businesses that are the key to the progress of our economies.

So the question arises that is there a way one can learn to be a successful entrepreneur? How do you inspire the younger upcoming generations to learn more so that they can make their way to the world of Entrepreneurship?

The formation of more and more environments that foster progressive ideas & innovation can enable students to follow the right path. The students should be given proper equipped practical knowledge with examples of real case studies so that they can get to know the actual scenario and work accordingly. They need to navigate the choppy waters of a business ownership.

Ageing and Entrepreneurship

Ageing and Entrepreneurship both go hand in hand. Late career transitions to entrepreneurship are often discussed as the most promising way address some of the problematic implications of population ageing. A number of studies happen on late career transitions and entrepreneurship intentions amongst those over 50, or close to retirement.

Brand Management

Branding means designing and implementation of marketing activities and programs to construct, measure, and manage brands to make best use of their value.

There are various steps one should follow while strategic branding. They are:

  1. Identification and establishment of brand positioning
  2. Plan and implement brand marketing campaigns
  3. Measuring and interpreting brand performance (audit)
  4. Increasing and sustaining of brand equity

Cultural and Creative Entrepreneurship

Cultural and creative entrepreneurs are a key driver of economic development. Hence, it is important to generate a more detailed understanding of their entrepreneurial mind-set and their behaviour.

Data Science and Entrepreneurship

Data science cannot be ignored by today’s smart entrepreneurs.  The web is full of “data-driven applications”. “Every e-commerce application these days is a data-driven application. There is a database behind a web front end and middleware that connects to a number of other databases and data services. Merely using data isn’t really what we mean by “data science.” A data application obtains its value from the data itself, and produces more data as a result. It is not just an application with data; it is a data product. Data science enables the creation of data products with the help of the various technologies.

With entrepreneurship today witnessing the advent of smart solutions, there have undoubtedly been numerous instances wherein issues plaguing the vast majority of the society have found mitigation. On deeper analysis, the key behind the smart models are the data which is derived from what is available in society. From an investment perspective, the venture capitalists also seek data science models that actually delve deep into technology.

Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship

  • Innovation?

Innovation is nothing but transforming an idea or invention into a good or service that creates value or for which customers will pay.

  • Technology?

Making modification, usage, and knowledge of tools, machines, techniques, crafts, systems, and methods of organization, in order to solve a problem, improve a pre-existing solution to a problem, achieve a goal, handle an applied input/output relation or perform a specific function.

An innovation that helps create a new market and value network, and eventually disrupts an existing market and value network (over a few years or decades), displacing an earlier technology.

  • Entrepreneurship?

The capacity and willingness to develop organize and manage a business venture along with any of its risks in order to make a profit.

Relation: Innovation leads to Technology that leads to many opportunities for the Entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurship and Ethics

Constructing a business means facing all kinds of ethical decisions. All successful entrepreneurs employ sound business ethics to bring the organization to a desirable position. The essence of entrepreneurial ethics is to form entrepreneurs; whose actions can grow wealth in any society.

These ethics are basic principles that should be employed by every entrepreneur or businessmen as to succeed in life, thereby creating impacts in the society.

Entrepreneurial ethics lead to positive attitudes towards raising successful entrepreneurs, who would in turn build entrepreneurial institutions for societal growth and advancement. Following these ethics the entrepreneurs and the team works with great desire, determination and perseverance to achieve common goals. Sound and proper usage of these ethics makes it possible for business schemes to handle or tackle problems when they arose.

The positive spirit is the way out of un-employment crises many countries are facing especially in the third world countries. Entrepreneurial ethics would lead to gradual development of various sectors in the economy including agriculture, commerce, technology etc.

Entrepreneurship and Gender

Entrepreneurship plays an important role in generating jobs, invention and growth. Fostering entrepreneurship is a vital policy goal for governments who expect that high rates of entrepreneurial activity will make sustainable jobs. Self-employment, also contributes to job creation in Europe, as 30% of the self-employed have employees of their own.

European-level data show that the self-employment sector has shown a degree of resilience during the recent financial crisis, as the comparative decline in rate of self-employment has been more moderate in comparison with remunerated employment.

It is argued that gendered socio‐economic arrangement ensures that businesses owned by women demonstrate constrained performance but this is not the same with under‐performance. Moreover, deep-seated epistemological gendered biases still continue which portray women as flawed entrepreneurs in spite of the absence of convincing data regarding essential gendered differences between the performance of male and female entrepreneurs.

  • Access to credit, finance and capital
  • Networking opportunities for women entrepreneurs
  • Horizontal gender segregation
  • Reconciling work and family life
  • Prejudices and stereotypes about women in business
  • Unfavourable business regulations
  • Cultural barriers
  • Choice of business types and sectors
  • Information and training gaps

Entrepreneurial Ecosystems and Start-Up Programmes

Innovation and entrepreneurship are clearly flourishing, but what exactly is an entrepreneurial ecosystem and how can entrepreneurs benefit from it?

Studies from around the globe consistently link entrepreneurship with rapid job creation, GDP growth, and long-term productivity increases. That's why the new Holy Grail for governments in both emerging and developed countries is to create an environment that nurtures and sustains entrepreneurship. Unfortunately, many governments take a misguided approach to building entrepreneurship ecosystems. They pursue some unattainable ideal and look to economies that are completely unlike theirs for best practices. However, today the most effective practices often come from remote corners of the earth, where resources-as well as legal frameworks, transparent governance, and democratic values may be scarce. Drawing from lessons learned in such countries as Rwanda, Chile, Iceland, Israel, and Colombia, this article defines nine principles for building a successful entrepreneurship ecosystem:

  1. Stop emulating Silicon Valley.
  2. Shape the ecosystem around local conditions.
  3. Engage the private sector early.
  4. Favour the high potentials.
  5. Get a big win on the board.
  6. Tackle cultural change head-on.
  7. Stress the roots.
  8. Don't over engineer clusters; help them grow organically.
  9. Reform legal, regulatory, and bureaucratic frameworks.

Each of these is critical to entrepreneurship-yet insufficient to sustain it. They key is to integrate them all into one holistic system.

Family Firms

Family firms enjoy a number of advantages and serve as some important drivers of economic growth. They also run into a maze of complexities which bring them a lot of potential risks because of their own structure. Family disputes sorely demonstrate the importance of keeping a check on the complexity either by reducing it or managing it in a proper manner. In a family business it is seen that success is tied directly to how well a company manages the most unique five resources every family possess. They are Human capital, Social capital, Patient financial capital, Survivability capital and lower costs of governance.

Geography of Entrepreneurship and Entrepreneurial Ecosystems

Entrepreneurship - or new firm formation - is a fundamental process of economic geography. Although empirical research by economic geographers historically has focused on large firms as employers and as agents of globalization, large firms typically start small and attract interest only after they become large. Perhaps partly in reaction to the decline in new firms in recent decades, entrepreneurship has not been a prominent research subject within economic geography in the United States. The situation appears to have changed, as seen in the recent attention to entrepreneurial ecosystems - dynamic local social, institutional, and cultural processes and actors that encourage and enhance new firm formation and growth.

Common usage of the term “ecosystem” in a social science rather than an ecological context became widespread only after the work of Moore, which highlighted the business ecosystem as the firm's external environment. Entrepreneurial ecosystems have similarities with industrial districts, clusters, and innovation systems; entrepreneurs and spin‐offs are present in these other frameworks but are not central as they are in entrepreneurial ecosystems. If it is true that “there is no such thing as an innovation system without entrepreneurs”, then a closer focus on entrepreneurs is needed. Only the entrepreneurial regional innovation system and the innovative milieu explicitly highlight the role of entrepreneurs. At the same time, like a cluster, an entrepreneurial ecosystem also involves as key actors several other entities, including large firms, universities, financial firms, and public organizations that support new and growing firms.

Open Innovation

The word “open innovation’’ itself speaks volumes. The concept of Open Innovation has generated an avalanche of interest. It is a business concept which was developed by Henry Cherbourg. It encourages companies to obtain outside sources of innovation in order to improve the product lines and shorten the time required to bring the products out to the market.

For many experts, this concept gave them a new language to speak about the nature of R&D. It has helped them to encourage business leaders to experiment with a wide range of new models for generating and commercializing innovation. Innovation scholars have also embraced this concept and have now even spawned conferences. Various governments have also re-aligned their policy frameworks towards open innovation.

Open innovation in the digital age

  • Open innovation across multiple levels of analysis
  • Contingency factors for open innovation
  • Pecuniary and non-pecuniary mechanisms
  • Communities, networks, ecosystems, alliances and other coupled forms of open innovation
  • Crowdsourcing, intermediaries,
  • Impact of open innovation upon new service offerings
  • Costs, downsides, failures and negative effects of open innovation

Entrepreneurship and Resilience

Resilience is an important quality that is necessary for every entrepreneur to have. It is said to be the key ingredient for a successful entrepreneurship. It’s an inherent to every successful entrepreneur that keeps one moving ahead even when the finishing line cannot be seen. A special combination of boldness and humility is required for one to really become a successful entrepreneur as you are actually building something that the world needs.  It actually measures your success.

Role of Universities in Fostering Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurs are creative, innovative, risk taking, dynamic, flexible, and brave, opportunity recognizer, and leadership potentiality, and network builder, independent and self-reliant people. Entrepreneurship is a key factor on:

  • Economic Growth and Development of countries
  • Providing employment and job opportunity
  • Enhancing productivity and production capabilities
  • Contributing to the high levels of creativity and innovation
  • Creating wealth and providing educate welfare

All new ideas and knowledge should be converted to profitable and useful products and services. And education for creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship should start from very early stages of childhood.

Smart City Entrepreneurship

Smart cities are the future innovation centres for Entrepreneurship. The concept of smart city has been introduced as a strategic device to encompass modern urban production factors in a common framework. These cities use intelligent designs to promote the three core values - Liveability, Sustainability & Workability. These values open up even more spaces for a creative entrepreneurship. It uses the most upgraded artificial intelligence and the data that has been collected from city sensors in order to predict and respond to various disasters- be it an earthquake, fire or flooding.

Social, Sustainable and Strategic Entrepreneurship

Interest in the concept of social and sustainable entrepreneurship has been sparked over the last two decades due to frustration with inefficient, ineffective and failed action of government and philanthropic bodies, as well as the socially destructive behaviour of many businesses. An explicit and central social/sustainable mission, innovation, creativity and a strong market orientation are the distinguishing features of social and sustainable entrepreneurship. Social and sustainable entrepreneurs are committed to furthering a social and/or sustainable mission, and rank social, environmental or cultural impact on a par with, or above, profit. At the intersection of business, government and not-for-profit organisations, these social and sustainable entrepreneurs are now visible and having an impact on a global scale.

Start-ups and Real Global Entrepreneurship

Start-ups are seen as nation builders as they create a positive contribution to the nation’s economy and create jobs. They are identified as a newly emerged, fast-growing business that targets to meet a marketplace need by developing a viable business model around an innovative product, process, platform or some service. With their growing success they can bring fruitful economic benefits in the long run. This start up landscape has been growing rapidly over the world to create a change.

As we hear the word “Global Entrepreneur”, the question that strikes our mind is that what do they do?

A Global Entrepreneur struggles to develop entrepreneurial leadership through real-world experience in a start-up. If you are looking for a short but intense professional experience and have an interest in the world of start-ups, this is the right choice for you!

Entrepreneurship, Societal Value Creation and Value Chains

The Value Chain Innovation brings together everyone to advance the theory and practice of global value chain innovation through research and knowledge dissemination.

People understand the financial and social impacts of the global dynamics and digital communications that are redesigning business, industries, and ecosystems. Our research concentrates on solving problems that are highly relevant to the greater global business community.

e-Entrepreneurship, Part-time Entrepreneurship, Home-based Entrepreneurship

When we are talking about e-entrepreneurship we refer to establishing a new company with an innovative business idea within the Net Economy, which, uses an electronic platform in data networks, and offers its products and services based upon a purely electronic creation of value.

Part time entrepreneurships are the newest and best way to accomplish your dream of being an Entrepreneur without hampering your current job.

Platforms and Entrepreneurship:

Entrepreneurship has gained increasing research attention in recent years. Although researchers largely agree the importance of innovation in the process of entrepreneurship, little research explores how the emerging innovation approaches can facilitate the above process. Furthermore, there is a lack of studies on entrepreneurship adopting the open platform strategy in light of the digital evolution. To address this research gap, this track investigates how entrepreneurs can take advantage of the platform-based innovation ecosystem in the entrepreneurial process. First, the track discusses various platform-based innovations for entrepreneurs and elaborates on the implementation with examples and practices. Accordingly, the track would demonstrate the framework which categorizes these innovation platforms to fulfil the needs at two pivotal stages of the innovation process (i.e. invention and commercialization) for entrepreneurs. The track also discusses the concerns and issues an innovation platform ecosystem may bring forth for entrepreneurs.

  1. The Electric Furnace (1889)
  2.  The Steam turbine
  3.  The Gasoline-powered automobile.
  4. The moving Picture
  5. The airplane
  6. Wireless Technology
  7. The cyanide process
  8. The Nikola Tesla induction motor
  9. The Linotype machine
  10. The electric welding process of Elihu Thomson

The city of Paris is built along a bend in the River Seine, between the confluence of the Marne and the Oise Rivers. The property comprises bridges, quays and the banks of the Seine in the historic part of its course (between the Pont de Sully and the Pont d’Iéna) and the Ile de la Cité and the Ile St Louis. The mastery of the architecture and town planning along the river is evident in the articulation of the Ile de la Cité and Ile St Louis with its banks, the creation of North-South thoroughfares, the installations along the river course, the construction of quays and the channelling of the river. The ensemble, regarded as a geographical and historical entity.

The City of Light draws millions of visitors every year with its unforgettable ambiance. The divine cuisine and vast art collections deserve some of the credit as well. The gentle River Seine rambles through the city, flanked by stately museums, centuries-old churches, and blocks of Rococo- and Neoclassic-design architecture, further enhanced by cascading trees and glowing streetlamps. Peppering the Seine's cobbled walks and graceful bridges are impossibly chic Parisians, probably on their way to the market, cafe or cinema.

Containing world-class museums, fashion, cuisine and an atmosphere all its own, Paris is also a city of "many splendors," as Ernest Hemingway recalled in his memoir, "A Moveable Feast." Visit the beloved Musée d'Orsay, shop the biggest designers on the Champs Élysées or hit the boutiques in Le Marais, take in the view atop the Eiffel Tower, or even plan a day trip to Versailles Palace. But don't miss out on the simple pleasure of meandering the marvelous arrondissements (districts), or snacking on street crepes either.
