ISB LEAP Conference India

Mohali,04.12.13: The Indian School of Business (ISB) with campuses at Mohali and Hyderabad hosted eminent industry leaders, government officials, and faculty from top international B-schools at LEAP (Leveraging Enterprises through Academic Participation) at its Mohali campus. 

Professor Loredana Padurean, Assistant Professor, Lasell College, MA, USA discussed how real people working in real time to produce real content can exert a huge impact since a direct connection between academia and industry is likely to benefit the industry most. Also if academic involvement in the industry is to be encouraged, a different set of incentives beyond publications alone; need to be put in place. She further stressed upon the need to replicate initiatives such as Venture for America in the Indian industry in order to push entrepreneurship and encourage start-ups. According to her, Action Research is likely to create value in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
