CCIE ‘10 – Conference on Corporate Innovation & Entrepreneurship 2010

Fostering Innovation in The Pakistan Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

December 11th, 2010 | Pearl Continental Hotel, Karachi | 09:00 am to 06:00 pm


For Pakistan to scale the ladder of development and be counted among the developed nations, it is vital that it has a thriving Entrepreneurial Eco-system. We at MIT Enterprise Forum of Pakistan (MITEFP:, over the past four years, have been working towards building this eco-system on a brick by brick basis. One of the activities towards this aim that we have been undertaking, for the past four years, is the Business Acceleration Plan (BAP) competition. Last year we expanded the scope of this activity by organizing a Conference on Corporate Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CCIE-2009) along with the competition. We are continuing this trend this year also and are organizing CCIE-2010 along with BAP -2010.

MITEFP is working with OPEN (Organization of Pakistani Entrepreneurs of North America) and Terrabiz for conducting the History Making MITEFP-OPEN Business Acceleration Program BAP-2010 & CCIE 2010. We are being provided guidance and leadership by Mr. Ken Morse, Founding MD, MIT Entrepreneurship Center & Mr. Bill Aulet, MD, MIT Entrepreneurship Center and Mr. Imran Sayeed, Chairman OPEN Global. We are also being supported by a number of other organizations.

MITEFP-OPEN BAP now in its fourth year has become one of the best programs of its kind in the world (as declared by Mr. Ken Morse, Founding MD, MIT Entrepreneurship Center). This history making initiative has the potential of having significant impact on the economic growth of Pakistan. The participating teams have reported that they benefited tremendously from participating in BAP-2007, BAP-2008 and BAP-2009. Similarly, CCIE-2009 Conference on Corporate Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CCIE 2009) was a huge success and now we are holding the second conference CCIE-2010 along with the fourth BAP.

Topics to be discussed:

· Culture of Creativity, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship
