CONFERENCE: 5th International Conference on Innovation and Entrepreneurship - April 26-27, 2017

Academic Conferences and Publishing International

The International Conference on Innovation and Entrepreneurship was established 4 years ago and it has been held in South Africa, USA, Thailand and Canada. ICIE has been attended by participants from more than 30 countries and attracts an interesting combination of academic scholars, practitioners and individuals who are engaged in various aspects of innovation and entrepreneurship.

In 2016 the Ted Rogers School of Business at Ryerson University played host to the first Innovative Youth Incubator Awards. We look forward to an interesting competition again this year in Kuala Lumpur where the Conference Chair is Assoc. Prof. Dr. Kamarulzaman Ab. Aziz.

A personal message from the Conference Chair

On behalf of Multimedia University we welcome you to Malaysia for the 5th International Conference on Innovation and Entrepreneurship (ICIE 2017), hosted by the Entrepreneur Development Centre (EDC) and the Centre of Excellence for Business Performance (CeBP).

The conference will be held on the Cyberjaya Campus, which is located in Cyberjaya -  the heart of the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC). Multimedia University is the first private university in Malaysia and since its inception in 1996 the university has grown from strength to strength.

Innovation and entrepreneurship have become central to economic growth, not least due to the rapid advancement of technology and the growing importance of the knowledge economy. The current global economy now calls for innovative ideas and dynamism, rather than organizational discipline, as well as adjustability and greater speed in taking decisions, which is what entrepreneurship is all about.

In Malaysia, entrepreneurship is very much alive and thriving. The development of entrepreneurship, as both a concept and an activity, is growing. The Malaysian government has been and continues to be supportive of entrepreneurship by actively nurturing it as a way to facilitate and upgrade the industrial structure to create sustainable industries for the next generation. Thus, it is timely for us to bring the ICIE to Malaysia.
