Trivandrum: As part of its diamond Jubilee celebrations, Kerala Financial Corporation (KFC) is organising a workshop on ‘Innovation-led and Technology-intensive Entrepreneurship: The way ahead for Kerala’ on December 03, 2013 in Thiruvananthapuram.
According to P Joy Oommen, Chairman & Managing Director of KFC, “Of late, there has been a perception that dependence on traditional factors of production may not be the best way to promote entrepreneurship in Kerala. Innovation and state of the art technologies could probably make the difference. It is in this context that KFC has decided to organise this day long workshop”.
There will be three sessions on ‘Issues in Innovations, Technology and Entrepreneurship’; ‘Innovations and Technologies for Social Entrepreneurship’ and ‘Understanding the world of Startups’.
“We have attempted to bring together eminent speakers and experts familiar with innovations and technologies making a difference to the lives of individuals, business and the society. We hope to make it worthwhile for each and every participant”, Joy added.
Prior registration is mandatory for this free event. Email sreejiths @ kfc.org for registration and details.
