Theme:In its next avatar, the e-commerce story has already delivered some happy endings with travel portal Makemytrip’s blockbuster Nasdaq debut and many other enterprises ready for a market outing. All the macro elements too seem to be in place for a large-scale growth in internet-based businesses: Favourable demographics, broadband penetration, an anticipated 3G rollout, internet banking, rise in online consumption behavior and so on. The momentum is building up, the growth trajectory has picked up since then and for entrepreneurs it’s a great time to build an internet company, investors and sector watchers reckon.

The business environment for online commerce is much more real today, compared to a decade back when the dotcom froth turned into a bust.

If anyone knows of other entrepreneurship events which may be of interest to the larger community, feel free to post :)

TiE – SME Conference 2011

Great networking opportunity at the TiE-SME conference tomorrow on the 28th Jan 2011 at Delhi.

Event Brief:-
It’s a well known fact that Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are the drivers of the Indian economy. While most of the world was dipped in recession last year, India still managed to put up a decent growth story driven largely by SMEs. In short, SMEs have and continue to significantly contribute to industrial, economic technological and regional developments.

Over the past few years, the development of SMEs has been linked to globalization. While globalization has opened up various growth avenues, there are challenges which SME’s grapple with on a day-to-day basis:

1) Learning to Compete and Not Just Survive in the Globalized Economy
2) Overcoming Challenges in Scaling up to the Next Level
3) Building a Differentiator — Creating Innovative Products & Processes
4) Setting Up Organizational Framework with Global Quality Standards
5) Managing Cash Flow
6) Understanding the Best Funding Options — Debt Vs Equity

In order to address some of the above challenges faced by SMEs and to vitalize them for global competitiveness and sustainable growth, TIE Delhi-NCR in association with IndiaMART.com is conducting an event on “Going Beyond India — Competing in a Globalized Economy” on January 28,2010.

The focus of the event is to look at the critical elements which go into helping SMEs’ compete in a globalized economy. This daylong event will emphasize on practical, implementable strategies that SMEs can incorporate in their businesses to achieve success.

So book your seat and take your enterprise to a global level!
