      Based on some recent national competitions calling for social innovation submissions, may I request the organisers to acknowledge contributor submissions, provide descriptive practical feedback, and make a difference by making introductions between submitters who may then collaborate among themselves or participate in an ecosystem, facilitated by Ennovent or the Awards sponsors. Execution defines impact, and it takes support to make worthwhile things happen, even for those worthy. This is also an appeal for greater transparency in shortlisting, further selection and evaluation criteria.

        How can Corporations and Entrepreneurs work together?

        CSR law aside, do Entrepreneurs see Corporations as a must-have strategic partner? What is your take on Innovation Accelerators backed by large Corporations such as Microsoft or Reliance? Finally, is there a greater need for vertical accelerators vs generalist accelerators?

          Rahul Bhargava, Thank you! Do you think that process discipline might lead to micro-management ? or loss of flexibility for the entrepreneurs?

          Not at all. Corporations and process driven organisations are necessarily constrained, that is decision flexibility is curtailed, by internal and external dependencies. In my experience, where organisations work with entrepreneurs, or small agile teams, the scope is deliberately left broad, and alignment with internal priorities is handled by the enterprise, if necessary. The best performing teams are formed on the fly, with adequate resources and depth among members, and left to their devices. Ask NASA. Out-performance results. Professional team members internalise best practices and do not need to be micro-managed. Ask Valve.
