TiECON Kerala 2017



It is that time of the year, we gather to discuss and deliberate on entrepreneurship under the umbrella of TiEcon. The attempt each year has been to focus on showcasing marquee entrepreneurs, provide a platform for the start-ups who are finding their feet and to felicitate the power and promise of entrepreneurship.


From the basic themes of encouraging and celebrating entrepreneurship to building an entrepreneurial ecosystem, we move this year to ‘Kerala – An entrepreneurial destination’. We believe the stage is set for some quantum entrepreneurial action in the state to leverage the strength of our traditional industries, promote and support MSMEs, as an ancillaries to large scale industries, attract huge capital investments on mutually beneficial terms by creating large number of industrial parks, industrial townships, special economic zones, etc.  We are keen to hear various perspectives, at the conference, on what the state should focus on the inputs from world-class speakers from not just India but across the globe. We also want to see and explore these ideas through the lens of few unique features of Kerala.


We intend to focus not only on the entrepreneurs but also the policy makers and some of the key players in the state bureaucracy.  As I mentioned earlier on, the image has almost changed from the legacy of red flags to the era of red carpets for entrepreneurs to set up their business in Kerala.

Like every year, we hope that we can create a wide panorama of information, experience sharing and bring together people from different walks of entrepreneurship and public life.


We hope to see you at Hotel Le Meridien, in Kochi on the 10th and 11th of November …


Warm Regards,

Rajesh Nair

President – TiE Kerala
