START UP TO SCALE UP: Management & Policy Interventions

Dawn of 21st century brought about a sea-change in the understanding of entrepreneurship. In the present context, apart from business goals, social, environmental or humanitarian goals are also incorporated. Thus the entrepreneurial initiatives have become the clarion call of the day. Consequently, a huge number of start-ups have mushroomed all over the country with potential of an enormous boost to the national economy. But, on the downside, a variety of factors inhibited the growth of these start-ups and a significantnumber of them have closed down, owing to lack of infrastructure, institutional support, capital funding etc. It is in this specific framework that the conference aims to explore the opportunities available for start-ups to grow and perform as well as to overcome the challenges that inhibit the growth.

The need of entrepreneurship and new business start-ups for a developing economy is indispensable. There is growing recognition among different stakeholders – entrepreneurs, investors, employees, policy makers and government – that building an ecosystem to facilitate start-ups requires concerted and coordinated holistic effort.

It is important to not only start up but also to scale up, so that the benefits of the innovation and new solutions can reach a wider set of beneficiaries as well as make the venture sustainable. To deliberate on the issues indicated below and to build and enhance the ecosystem for entrepreneurship, organizers invite academicians & scholars, practitioners and policy makers from around the globe to participate in helping the world community at large.
