Session 1: Market & business dynamics in emerging markets

Businesses in emerging economies are breaking the rules of convention and finding innovative ways to grow and sustain in the competitive landscape. These high growth regions, like India, Greater China, Brazil and sub-Saharan Africa, have come out of the global downturn with a lower degree of impact. These markets are in the focus of international business as they provide significant challenges and great opportunities. An economy on the rise, a fast developing business environment, and the culture of ‘we-can-make-it-happen’ are the big enablers. The rapid penetration of mobile telephony and the internet have played a big role. India ranks an outstanding 28th in the most complex areas measured by the business sophistication and innovation sub-index, ahead of several advanced economies.

Session 2: Healthcare & education: Next frontier in multi-disciplinary system design

Electronics can be tomorrow’s change agent in healthcare and education in India. Electronics for medical and education devices need not be the privilege of the few. Electronics has the potential to bring about a revolution in healthcare delivery in India, and take education to the masses. Value engineering and systems integration will make products more accessible and enable inclusive growth. Technologies that allow portability, connectivity and data security will rule the day. Systems will then move from the hospital environment to the home. Industry is looking at ways to surmount the pricing barrier and challenges in distribution, and thereby, evolve an enabling ecosystem.

Session 3: Energy efficiency: Energy saved is energy produced

The world is estimated to consume 20,000 billion KWH of electrical energy in the year 2010. By 2030, it will grow to 30,000 billion KWH. The demand will be significantly higher from the emerging economies of China and India. Such high energy consumption is bound to leave a huge impact on the environment. Energy-efficient products and devices can be a big savior. Electronics can make a big difference in the energy efficiency of products and systems. It is the enabling technology to efficiently use, distribute and generate electrical energy. Several market segments, such as domestic and office appliances, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning, digital consumer, communication, factory automation and drives, traction, automotive and renewable energy, can potentially benefit from the application of electronics in the efficient usage of electrical energy.

Session 4: Telecom & consumer products: Driving global markets through local innovations

Growing local markets and rising consumption levels are important developments in the Indian consumer market. Rising incomes as well as growth of middle class is fuelling the consumption levels in India. This creates the market potential for electronics applications which is being tapped by budding entrepreneurs apart from large and established companies. The telecom and consumer sectors are such examples, where we are now starting to see both established and new players. The diversity of India, which brings forth wide opportunities starting from the entry level applications for the bottom of pyramid opportunities goes up to high end sophisticated applications. This is giving rise to locally designed products for local markets. This will bring a paradigm shift, as the local design teams will be now in direct touch with the customers, which will further develop the capability of high innovations. The spotlight now turns on Indian industry as it leverages the gains made on the home ground to explore global markets.

Fueling the Next Wave of Innovation & Growth

India is well poised to expand even beyond the current level of growth, leveraging new paradigms such as 'reverse innovation' and developing innovative products that are at price points so low that they were previously considered inconceivable. Because of a limited legacy infrastructure, India can readily adopt 'leapfrogging' technologies, including programmable platforms that offer significant advantages over previous approaches to custom digital logic design. Based upon the industry’s leading-edge semiconductor process, these programmable platforms offer unit costs that rival ASICs and ASSPs. It will serve as a critical enabler for the rapid development of cost-effective products that require a minimum capital outlay and infrastructure. Against the backdrop of a rapidly growing economy, a robust EMS infrastructure, the imminent deployment of high-speed 3G wireless technologies, and an insatiable demand for bandwidth fueling new and innovative product ideas, India is at an advantage to lead the next wave of global innovation and growth.

Session 5: Idea to product to markets: Entrepreneur's journey. Two sides of the same coin

Henry Ford once said if he had asked people what they wanted, they might have said faster horses. He instead asked the right questions and found out that what people wanted was to get to town and back home faster. He gave them a basic car. The entrepreneur’s journey starts with asking the right questions. That forms the basis of germinating an idea into a concrete plan. Developing IPR and making the right pitch in today’s crowded marketplace are the milestones in an entrepreneur’s journey. The lessons learnt through this journey have high relevance for entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs, irrespective of the region or the industry.

Session 6: Innovation for masses: disruptive technologies, a key market driver

Social entrepreneurship is taking root in India. Innovative business models that meet both broader social concerns and the organization’s business goals have opened a new dimension in corporate India. These organizations have shown how a business that is socially oriented does not necessarily translate to a ‘no profit’ approach. The biggest achievement of these businesses has been their ability to enable inclusive growth by reaching out to the masses with low-cost, high-quality products and services.
