1st International Conference – Digital Entrepreneurship-Prospects, Perils, Dividends and Challenges , 20th and 21st April 2018. Organised by the School of Managment, Presidency University.
“There is no Business without Digital Business “– these words by Dr. Shubhro Sen, Director, School of Entrepreneurship & Management, Shiv Nadar University not only set the ground for the two day International Conference on Digital Entrepreneurship at Presidency University, Bangalore but also reinforced the raison d’etre for the genesis of this event.
Envisaged by Dr. Swapan Majumdar, Professor, School of Management at Presidency University, the Conference attracted speakers from Finland (Dr. Ulla Koivukoski, Avanto Ventures) to Malaysia (Dr. Naresh Kumar, Kelanatan Universiti). The Country Head for Yes Bank, Amit Shah was the Chief Guest, while one of the panels was presided by Dr. Aloknath De – the Country Head for Samsung. Mr Krupesh Bhat of Legal Desk.com defined Digital Entrepreneurship as one that could be scaled exponentially, can run without the Founder’s constant presence and of course make profit.
The two day conference became a wonderful space for young aspiring Entrepreneurs, seasoned Head Honchos and Academia to interact , deliberate and perhaps lay the foundation for an academia – business support system that would provide an eco-system for young people to set out on their entrepreneurial journey and make it a successful one, which in fact is the theme for the International Conference March, 2019 – “Digital Entrepreneurship – Platforms, People, Process and Technology.”
