India’s march to economic progress is dependent on strengthening its regional competitiveness to attract industry. It is essential for Business Leaders across the private and public enterprise to leverage technological advances to create an environment conducive for delivering broad-based sustainable growth. This requires a balanced mix of large enterprise in the public and private sectors, entrepreneurial start-ups, and innovators with ideas that can be taken forward as products and solutions.
Innovation can contribute to economic progress by commercializing productivity-enhancing products and solutions that effectively deploy the nation's labour and capital resources. Innovation has the additional benefit of expanding the number and value of new products and solutions that global citizens are willing to buy, and this can significantly enhance the Government's 'Make in India' initiative.
There is a unique opportunity for India's Business and Academia Leaders to collaborate with Policy-makers and the Government to build an environment that promotes innovation. It is possible to achieve this by creating and nurturing innovation-focused collaborations between young and nimble start-ups, established companies, Academia, and Research Organizations.
