About this book

This book provides cutting-edge insights into factors, issues and instruments that foster entrepreneurship and innovation in its various guises ,in India – the fastest growing economy in the world today. India’s future is predicated upon the capabilities of its people and organisations to identify and develop new products, services, types of organization and new forms of economic and social engagement with producers, consumers, institutions,and her citizens.

 

The book addresses four critical factors - people, technology, organisations and society. It evaluates  how Indian entrepreneurs utilise their range of key skills and entrepreneurial competencies in local and transnational environments. It explores how software and technological development, and the reorganisation of the public research infrastructure, are leading to a transformation of our organisations and our capacity to develop new ones. Further, it examines the role of socially-unity-driven entrepreneurship and community-based innovation centred round the arts and culture in urban and rural settings, in promoting socially oriented transformation. The book aims to offer a small but rich portfolio of India's unique entrepreneurial capabilities.
