The theme for this year TiE-ISB Connect is to tap the 'The Next 800 million Opportunity' and review the overall economic growth patterns; compare with the developed nation and explore the possible models for India. Discussion will be held on migration of labor pool from primary farming sector to secondary manufacturing sector and further to tertiary services sector including the wage arbitrage.

Other eminent keynote speakers during the three-day event are David Kayle, Acumen Fund, Y C Deveshwar, ITC and Bijou Kurien, Reliance Retail.

On the theme, Ajit Rangnekar, Deputy Dean, ISB, said, 'Inclusive growth in India requires equal opportunities and entrepreneurship has the potential to meet this demand. The ISB has focused its efforts to nurture entrepreneurs, who will create ventures that will generate opportunities and wealth in the rural and ancillary sectors.'

J A Chowdary, President of TiE, Hyderabad Chapter said, TiE-ISB Connect has been successful in providing many aspirants a destination to turn idea into reality. Our mission, he said is to play a key role in bringing Bright Ideas and Cool Start ups to accomplish their journey and find ways to encourage the spirit of entrepreneurship.

Dr Krishna Tanuku, Executive Director, WCED, said, 'We need more community based support for entrepreneurship rather than individual. Events such as the TiE- ISB Connect play a key role in strengthening the community support for entrepreneurship.'
