About the conference Digital Entrepreneurship creating new ventures or transforming existing business by new digital technologies and processes. Digital Enterprises are characterized by a high strength of use of new digital technologies (particularly social, mobile, analytics and cloud solutions) to improve business operations, invent new (digital) business models, sharpen business intelligence, and engage with customers and stakeholders through new (digital) channels. Consequently, we are in an era where initiatives across the globe to foster the acceleration of digital entrepreneurial activity related with the creation and development of "digital start-ups", and more recently with their growth to scaling-up phases is on its peak. The right Platform with the right process and people mix coupled with right technology is the mantra for success.

The theme of 1st International Conference was “Digital Entrepreneurship: Prospects, Perils, Dividends and Challenges” with many sub-themes. The Conference was graced by sixteen national and international speakers who are truly global leaders of ‘Digital Entrepreneurship’. Eleven speakers were from industry who are the CEOs, Founders and world leaders of digital enterprises. The rest were from world class academic institutions who are consultants, incubators, mentors and thought leaders of “digital Entrepreneurship, and some of them are even listed in the list of world‘s ‘Who‘s Who‘.
The conference started with a bang, when the Conference Dias was graced by three eminent world leaders of ‘Digital Entrepreneurship ’: the Chief Guest, Mr. Amit Shah, Sr. President of Yes Bank, Mumbai, Keynote Speaker, Dr. Subhro Sen, Director, School of Entrepreneurship & Management, Shiv Nadar University, Noida and the Co-Chair of the conference, Dr. Naresh Kumar, Head of Research, Global Entrepreneurship Research and Innovation Centre, Universiti Malaysia Kelantan along with the Conference Chair, Dr. Swapan Kumar Majumdar, Pro-Chancellor, Dr. Vijayan Immanuel, and other dignitaries of Presidency University, Bangalore. After two days deliberations it ended with rich international flovour and spirit in terms of content and construct. The closing ceremony was chaired by Mr. Vinshnu Vardhan, General Manager, Bombay Stock Exchange, the prime sponsor of the Conference.
he beauty of the conference was its thoughtful construct of four plenary debate sessions like.
Over and above there were four paper presentation tracks, where thirty one research scholars and academicians presented their research findings and one track for bidding entrepreneurs to participate in poster presentation contest. The conference received high appreciation from all corners ‾ be it participants, students, speakers or critics.
The keys of success of this conference were lean planning, rigorous research about the sub-themes and finding matching speakers, dynamic scheduling and the flawless execution of each session and convincing five hundred plus young hearts, industry delegates, and faculty members to attend the conference. The major highlights of the conference were:
The key takeaways of the conference are: (1) digital revolution is unstoppable; (2) the disruptive power of this potent of digital technology is the hotbed of innovation and entrepreneurship; (3) those who will fail to adapt or reposition themselves in digital world will remain isolated and eventually die; (4) worldwide digital entrepreneurs are number one job creators; (5) no industry will neither escape nor survive without opting for digital transformation; (6) incubation and innovation centers are the nurseries or backyards of digital entrepreneurship; and finally (7) if Presidency University wants to be a power house or repository of digital talents, it must have Centers of Excellence in Incubation and Innovation for Digital Entrepreneurship. Knowledge of digital entrepreneurship is grossly incomplete and indispensable to survive and thrive in this digital landscape. To fast forward our learning about the various facets of Digital Entrepreneurship, we must meet annually in the forum of International Conference on Digital Entrepreneurship till we know every bit of it. Therefore, SOM decided to conduct the second international conference on Digital Entrepreneurship in March 2019.
The proposed theme of the 2nd International Conference would be “Digital Entrepreneurship: Platforms, People, Process and Technology“ in a wider scale and space. The beauty of this conference lies in its diversity of opinions, viewpoints and regional experiences. I am sure participants of next conference will find it interesting and exciting and thought provoking and will continue to encourage entrepreneurs and researchers to share their thoughts, experience and concerns for building a better tomorrow.
