The Mindset Behind IEES 2018

Entrepreneurship has been widely accepted as a means to transform minds, economies and living standards of people. It has unleashed itself in various forms and is breaking the traditional barriers of age, education, gender etc. to pursue an entrepreneurial career. The concepts of effectuation (Darden), ETA (Entrepreneurial Thought and Action) (Babson) and Lean startup methodology (Stanford) has transformed the entrepreneurship pedagogy.

This disruption in entrepreneurship teaching is manifesting itself in various forms i.e. Goldman Sachs entrepreneurship program for women and small business, the Flatiron school offering four months program in ICT based entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship program for seniors & ex-service men, technology entrepreneurship, agriculture entrepreneurship, "A hen a kid" in Africa and the Bare foot college movement in India has transformed the life of millions. Moreover, Akhuwat foundation is writing history in Pakistan by introducing the concept of zero interest micro-finance.

Entrepreneurship is moving beyond making money and is in search of solutions which are socially, ethically, economically and environmentally sustainable and make the world a better place. Many researchers and programs are looking towards metaphysical and spiritual motives which lead to inner satisfaction. Hence. Pakistan with a huge population of young people needs to capitalize entrepreneurship and engage its youth in productive and constructive activities.

The IBA Center for Entrepreneurial Development (CED) was created in 2010 to play a major role in promoting entrepreneurship in Pakistan and to contribute in the development of an entrepreneurial eco-system.

More than 500 faculty members throughout the country have been trained at IBA CED and many of them are contributing in innovative and creative ways to teach and promote entrepreneurship. Moreover, around 5000 people have benefited through various programs at CED.
