Panelists:

The business model innovations that have catapulted Indian firms onto the global stage may not be appropriate for the next phase of growth. In fact, they may hinder the changes in mindset, structures and processes required to transform a $4 billion company into a $20 billion one. Also, India needs to scale up entrepreneurial initiatives so that another fifty Infosys-like stories can emerge across sectors to accelerate the overall development process. Three sets of inter-related questions emerge: What are these next generation innovation capabilities? How can Indian firms develop these capabilities? How should the innovation ecosystem be designed to foster entrepreneurial and innovation capabilities? This panel will examine these questions by studying the intersection of firm strategy, private-public institutions, and policy makers.
