Abstract: Entrepreneurs are not born, they are made. Learn how to identify & solve the next big problem. Popular culture often portrays Entrepreneurship as a messy, hit-or-miss process, driven by a charismatic founder. Disciplined Entrepreneurship, which is a framework developed at MIT for launching innovation driven new ventures, presents a structured approach for the same. In this talk, the audience will be engaged in understanding & applying the framework in a learning environment.
