Research Seminar 2023

Innovation and entrepreneurship have been defined variously which include suggestions of broad overlap as well contentions of nuanced differences. There is, however, no denying that innovative entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial innovation have been the vanguard of economic development and social progress from time immemorial. The development of Entrepreneurial as well as Entrepreneurial mind-set among the younger generations of management learners would be extremely beneficial in terms of being equipped with the appropriate mind-set for the corporate and the academia. This seminar focused on some aspects of this vast subject, which are of immediate relevance to academicians, practicing managers and management candidates and society members in general so that appropriate deliberations will lead to creation of human resource with an entrepreneurial mind-set. The term innovation refers to a process that comprises three stages: the conception of a new idea, its evaluation, and, finally, its practical implementation. Thus, innovation is an important element of modern entrepreneurship. Innovation management, namely, how a new idea is created, how and by what criteria it is assessed, or how it is financed, are a very tedious and demanding process, and a component element of effective entrepreneurship.
