ISB to launch Big Leap Club for North India-based SMEs

The Indian School of Business (ISB) recently announced the setting up of a 'Big Leap Club' meant exclusively for SMEs spread in and around Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh to help them get access to the best industry practices. 



"The objective of the Big Leap Club is to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) get access to the latest and best practices across the world, interact with ISB and international faculty, network with leading industry experts and leaders from large Indian corporates and MNCs," said an ISB release. 

 

It will also help them get an opportunity to enroll for ISB's executive education programmes in a planned manner to help them accelerate their growth, it said. 

 

An initiative of Munjal Institute for Global Manufacturing (MIGM) at ISB, the club will be formally launched at the 'Big Leap Summit', a two-day conference organised at ISB's Mohali campus on September 6 and 7. 

 

The summit is being organised to provide a platform for in-depth discussions between promoters, entrepreneurs, technologists, operations and financial experts from the SMEs on current issues/ challenges and how to overcome them. 



Pradeep Singh, CEO, Mohali campus and Deputy Dean, ISB, said, "Over the years, SME clusters have played a very important role of being the drivers of growth in India in general and in the states of Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and the surrounding regions in particular. 



However, the SMEs have not always been able to take full advantage of the opportunities presented by fast pace of globalisation. A major reason for this has been the lack of access to latest best practices being followed around the world." 

 

He added, "The Big Leap Club at the ISB is designed to fulfill this critical gap and support the SMEs by sharing with them knowledge and insights from global experts that will help them revive and put themselves on the growth path once again.

 

The MIGM at ISB will engage closely with the SMEs over the next one year and support them through various initiatives."
