Background

Every commercial giant started as a spark or as a whisper in an entrepreneur’s conscience. Every successful commercial institute started as a new venture and every product started as the finest gem of an idea in someone’s imagination. By and large we all have good ideas, but relatively few of us have the drive, energy and skill to promote and develop those ideas and to visualize them through commercial execution. Entrepreneurship is the science and the art of setting new ventures in motion. Rapid induction and proliferation of IT has changed the entire arena of commercial world and with the commencement of information technology (IT) in entrepreneurship, it has changed all the aspects of world to a great extent. IT contributes to the entrepreneurship in different ways.

There is a wide gap between an idea and a successful venture. It can only be bridged by a commitment to every opportunity and promoting it in a better user based environment and quality based commercial spheres of influence. Every idea needs a platform for its need, feasibility, validity, and practical application to meet the requirement and expectations of widest user base available in the society. Today the IT based entrepreneurship covers a wide spectrum of social requirements and thus demands a wide variety of aspiring ideas to meet the mass expectations in changing socio-economic environment.

Thus, TIIC, ABV – IIITM, Gwalior is organizing this summit to facilitate the budding IT entrepreneurs with a platform to learn and showcase their innovation in the field of IT entrepreneurship. Promoting IT entrepreneurship at such a wide scale, across institution and colleges can churn out many skilled and motivated entrepreneurs to step out and address new developmental needs of society.
