Abstract:

Innovation and Entrepreneurship are two major buzzwords of business and management today. While the world has seen some major success stories on entrepreneurship in facebook, Alibaba, uber, apple, Microsoft etc., there have been more than 90% failures. This lecture will investigate the basics of entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship (entrepreneurship from within a company) and its potential role in solving global problems, such as the achievement of the universal health coverage and unemployment.
