The Economic Times - Entrepreneurship Summit
Entrepreneurship is the new buzzword in business corridors. That is not to say that it is a ‘new’ phenomenon, but the attention it is getting now is phenomenal. The Narendra Modi Government has allocated Rs. 1,000 crore in the Union Budget 2015 to entrepreneurship.
Meanwhile, ‘Start-up India – Momentous Rise of the Indian Startup Ecosystem’, a recent Nasscom report informs that India has been declared as the youngest start-up nation in the world, with average age of entrepreneurs being less than 35 years. India, it states, is the 5th largest start-up ecosystem in the world with total number of start-ups growing to 4200. The report also states that by the year end Indian startups would have received $5 billion worth of VC funds, including Government initiatives.
The second edition of ‘The Economic Times Entrepreneurship Summit’ seeks to deliberate on the entrepreneurship ecosystem and various factors that create it. Entrepreneurs from different backgrounds and passions will come together with venture capitalists, accelerators and others who are a part of this ecosystem. While on one side we would have seniors discussing the current scenario, on the other the budding entrepreneurs looking for practical advice and innovative solutions would get their answers from veterans.
