Being Innovative and Entrepreneurial: Lessons from the Trenches

I will be giving the following lecture at the Academy for Entrepreneurial Leadership, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign - "Being Innovative and Entrepreneurial: Lessons from the Trenches". Here is the abstract: Successful entrepreneurs are those who can realize their visions by leveraging their resources and capabilities. Key to successful entrepreneurship is the ability to innovate and leverage ones know-how. Entrepreneurs who are successful in being innovative will be able to identify unique opportunities in the marketplace, position their products and services in unique manners, and will be able to disrupt positions held by incumbent firms. In this presentation, I will outline lessons that I learnt from several entrepreneurial endeavors. These lessons will be framed in the context of knowledge management and the calibration of organizational innovations.
