The memorial lecture will bring alive Prof C K Prahalad's contribution to the field of social entrepreneurship and innovation-two values that will be discussed, debated and demonstrated though the 2-day conference that attracts celebrated thought leaders, successful entrepreneurs, budding entrepreneurs, students wishing to create jobs for others rather than look for one for themselves.
"Indian entrepreneurship is being recognized globally. The power of Indian innovation is proving its mettle world over. This sets the stage for the recognition of the power of Entrepreneurship in transforming India-the theme for this year's event," says Sanjeev Bikhchandani, President of TiE Delhi NCR, one of the largest among 57 chapters worldwide.
The eleventh TiECon will also see the TiE Institute conduct a series of parallel sessions to equip participants to come and face the hurdles during their entrepreneurial journey--from raising funds and managing finances to effective marketing strategies and attracting talent.
"It will be a 16-hour 'Mini MBA' in entrepreneurships with hundreds of experiential nuggets coming from TiE charter members like Raman Roy, Mohit Goyal, Saurabh Srivastava, Sanjeev Bikhchandani, Alok Mittal, Pradeep Gupta, Pramod Bhasin, Bobby Bedi and Deep Kalra," says Geetika Dayal, Executive Director, TiE Delhi-NCR.
Instituted in 2008, the TiE-Lumis Excellence Awards program will recognize fast growing, high potential startups that are breaking new ground with intense passion and innovation.
