Building an Inclusive Entrepreneurial Ecosystem: Going Vernacular
Date: 13th March 2020
Place: Institute of Rural Management Anand 
About the workshop

National Conference on incubating rural and social enterprises (NCIRSE) is an opportunity for ISEED and its partners, social enterprises and civil society organisations, to share their work and build collaborations. One of the key domains of ISEED involves co-creating a vibrant and dynamic entrepreneurial ecosystem in the underserved regions and domains with its partners. In the last one year, ISEED‟s interactions with its ecosystem partners and field visits indicated a large unmet demand for customized grassroots entrepreneurship training (GET) building on newer insights on entrepreneurship such as effectual entrepreneurship, lean start-up or design thinking contextualised to the Indian and rural context. Both the content and the context of entrepreneurship needed a vernacular turn. Hence the core theme for this year‟ NCIRSE was „Building an inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem: Going vernacular‟. This, 4th edition of NCIRSE was organised on the last day of ISEED‟s annual national conference from 11th -13th March 2020 at the Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA).
