GEW INDIA 2013 allows CIIE to create a platform to celebrate entrepreneurship across the country and help lower the societal barriers towards entrepreneurship. It also acts as a unifying event bringing the whole ecosystem together and allowing for more collaboration to happen. GEW INDIA 2013 supports 150 events through a number of partners.

 

Ashwin Joshi, VP (Ecosystem Development) at CIIE said, “Over the past few years, the attitude towards entrepreneurship has undergone a sea change. From a situation where the best and the brightest of the country were focusing on getting high paying consulting and investment banking jobs, we have reached a situation where many individuals are leaving their cushy corporate jobs to start up. This is where initiatives like GEW step in and give the platform to set foot in the industry for budding entrepreneurs. Hosting of GEW India also ―helps create bridges for international expansion of Indian start-ups and allows the event partners multiple such bridges across geographies”.

 

Also speaking on the event, Mr. Mainak Bhattacharya, Manager-Portfolio Operations at CIIE and host for GEW India said, “From a larger society perspective, a large scale event like GEW INDIA 2013 would also help in reaching out to the influences in the lives of entrepreneurs - parents, spouses etc. These are the people who form the immediate support system for the entrepreneurs, and lowering their resistance to entrepreneurship is the next big challenge that exists. Similarly, GEW INDIA 2013 aims to create more awareness towards start-up culture among college students, encouraging them to take up meaningful roles in start-ups rather than other run-of-the-mill jobs that are more often available to them”.
