5th International Conference on Innovation and Entrepreneurship (ICIE) 2017 Kuala Lumpur

  • Conference Call
  • The Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Inno­va­tion and Entre­pre­neur­ship (ICIE) was estab­lished 4 years ago and it has been held in South Africa, USA, Thai­land and Canada. ICIE has been attended by par­tic­i­pants from more than 30 coun­tries and attracts an inter­est­ing com­bi­na­tion of aca­d­e­mic schol­ars, prac­ti­tion­ers and indi­vid­u­als who are engaged in var­i­ous aspects of inno­va­tion and entrepreneurship.

    In 2016 the Ted Rogers School of Busi­ness at Ryer­son Uni­ver­sity played host to the first Inno­v­a­tive Youth Incu­ba­tor Awards. We look for­ward to an inter­est­ing com­pe­ti­tion again this year in Kuala Lumpur where the 2017 edi­tion of ICIE will be held on April 2627, 2017. The 5th Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Inno­va­tion and Entre­pre­neur­ship (ICIE 2017) is hosted by the Entre­pre­neur Devel­op­ment Cen­tre (EDC) and the Cen­tre of Excel­lence for Busi­ness Per­for­mance (CeBP) of the Mul­ti­me­dia Uni­ver­sity.

    2nd Inno­v­a­tive Youth Incu­ba­tor Awards

    Many uni­ver­si­ties across the world encour­age entre­pre­neur­ship in ways that range from edu­ca­tional pro­grams to the oper­a­tion of incu­ba­tors to sup­port the actual launch of new busi­nesses. While many of these incu­ba­tors focus on the launch of busi­nesses to sup­port the work of fac­ulty and uni­ver­sity research cen­tres, oth­ers focus more on how to help young entrepreneurs.

    As the devel­op­ment of young entre­pre­neurs is receiv­ing much greater atten­tion across the world, at the Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Inno­va­tion and Entre­pre­neur­ship we are launch­ing a com­pe­ti­tion to show­case novel and inno­v­a­tive insti­tu­tional incu­ba­tors and sim­i­lar ini­tia­tives that focus on the devel­op­ment of young entrepreneurs.

    If you are or have been involved in the cre­ation of an insti­tu­tional incu­ba­tor or other sim­i­lar ini­tia­tive that sup­ports the devel­op­ment of young entre­pre­neurs we invite you to par­tic­i­pate in this competition.

    To enter we ask you in the first instance to sub­mit an abstract using the online sub­mis­sion form describ­ing the ini­tia­tive. If your work is suit­able we will invite you to sub­mit a case his­tory of no more than 3000 words describ­ing the Incubator/​Initiative.

    The judges will be using the fol­low­ing cri­te­ria when con­sid­er­ing submissions

    • The title and man­date of the Incubator/​Initiative, includ­ing the tar­geted young entrepreneurs
    • The cri­te­ria used to screen applicants
    • Strate­gies to encour­age inclu­sion of diverse candidates
    • The infrastructure/​support pro­vided by the institution
    • The links to other entre­pre­neur­ship activ­i­ties within the institution
    • The per­for­mance of the Incubator/​Initiative so far, includ­ing any rat­ings by participants
    • The chal­lenges that were encountered
    • Plans to fur­ther develop/​improve the initiative
    • The judges will con­sider all sub­mis­sions received by the clos­ing date and the top 10 ini­tia­tives will be invited to present their cases at the con­fer­ence in Kuala Lumpur in April 2017.

    A prize will be awarded to the ini­tia­tive judged most inno­v­a­tive and effective.
