The Twelfth Biennial Conference on Entrepreneurship began today at the Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDII), an acknowledged national resource Institute for Entrepreneurship Education, Research, Training and Institution Building. 170 scholars, academicians, educationists and researchers, including 35 from 20 countries India and across the world, are attending the three day event at EDII campus. Around 325 abstracts and 250 research papers were received by the Institute, out of which 139 papers were accepted for published.
The Institute also celebrated Silver Jubilee of ‘The Journal of Entrepreneurship’, which is a reputed academic publication.
Prof Pradip Khandwalla, Former Director, IIM-A, who inaugurated the conference said, “Looking at the range of topics included in this conference, we can say that entrepreneurship research has come of age, though there is still long way to go. EDII has been arranging this conference since long, providing a platform to researchers, practitioners and educators of entrepreneurship to share their ideas, beliefs and work with other experts.”

Prof Khandwalla emphasized on need for innovation-centred entrepreneurship. “Innovation-centred entrepreneurship is important for developing countries. However, research says alone it is not enough. When innovation-centred entrepreneurship is blended with compassion, social entrepreneurship is born. It makes society humane, creative and performance oriented,” Prof Khandwalla said.
Prof Sasi Misra, Conference Chair & Editor, The Journal of Entrepreneurship said, “Just as its preceding eleven conferences over the past 22 years, the Twelfth Biennial Conference on Entrepreneurship will continue to be an established forum for researchers, educators and practitioners to share their ideas, and research results with their peers in addition to exchanging feedback and honing their own research pursuits.”

In this context the conference is a testament to the institute's pursuit of excellence and vast contribution to entrepreneurship education, training, research and institution building within India and internationally.”
