WeSchool Center of Excellence for Case Development (CECD)
CECD was established in 2012, with the objective to promote case methodology and to develop a repository of India’s best business practices as management teaching case studies for the purpose of international / national publications. CECD has contributed to building knowledge repository by publishing more than 40 case studies on various corporates and NGOs at international platforms such as Richard Ivey, Harvard Business Publishing, Globalens, Michigan University, Emerald, ET Cases etc. The centre also works on developing practitioner oriented qualitative case-based research studies.
In recent times, a significant number of women in India have started their own enterprises offering innovative products and services that address sustainable development goals of this century.
This conference aims to put innovation by women entrepreneurs at the core of inquiry; providing a platform to the practitioners, academicians and students to examine how innovation inspires women to start, spawn and scale their businesses in the marketplace. The objective is to bring forth research insights on the gender analysis of innovation through multiple theoretical lenses.
A distinguished panel of speakers representing different segments of the ecosystem for entrepreneurship, would share their experience through plenary talks and panel discussions. The expected outcomes are multi-fold, for academicians a new knowledge repository, for practising women entrepreneurs future possibilities on venture funding, inputs on talent acquisition challenges (if any), gender and its relation to incremental and radical innovations in entrepreneurial ventures, for students an understanding of the gender based thinking lens in organizational and entrepreneurial settings.
The conference’s theme and its multifold outcomes allows for participation of wide audience from academicians, doctoral scholars, students (all disciplines), industry practitioners, consultants, executives of incubators and accelerators and the start-up entrepreneurs.
The conference sessions’ design offers an opportunity to learn from domain expert experiences and make contributions to the field of knowledge.
The conference will have eminent guest speakers from industry, start-ups, NGOs, apex bodies and publishing houses
