TiECON Kolkata 2018 : 'The Tipping Point – Accelerating the Growth of Entrepreneurship in East India'.

Theme of TiECON 2018 & Rationale:

Over the past few decades, there is a perception of East India in general, and Bengal in particular, lagging behind entrepreneurial development compared to some other states. However, recent initiatives by a number of stakeholders – state governments, industry bodies, educational institutions, and of course, a large number of existing & new entrepreneurs – are working actively to reshape this reality and perception.

We believe we are now at the threshold of a dramatic transition – The Tipping Point – when growth of entrepreneurship development in this part of the country is poised for takeoff and race ahead of other geographies. The Time is Now, and the Place is Here!

Thus the theme of TiECON Kolkata 2018 is 'The Tipping Point – Accelerating the Growth of Entrepreneurship in East India'.

Blockbuster Event

We at TiE Kolkata wish to use TiECON as an event to put together our collective energies and galvanize this rapid acceleration of entrepreneurial mindset, aspiration and collaborative thinking and doing to achieve this ambition.
