    Webinar - Cultural Economics and Sustainable Development: As the Footprints Merge

    This presentation deals with the points of convergence and divergence between Environmental Economics and Cultural Economics. It brings out the case of tropical forest conservation in India and compares the same with the policy and economic dimensions of Classical Performing Dances (with special reference to classical Ballet and India's Sanskrit Drama - Dance). The presentation sets its analysis by drawing upon the notion of natural capital and compares it with creative capital that represents the asset base of classical dance theaters. The presentation seeks to raise fundamental public policy and Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) issues connected with sustainable development and cultural Economics.

    Webinar: From Social Entrepreneurship to Institutional Entrepreneurship: The Case of RuralShores

    Time: 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

    Scaling a social enterprise is a critical challenge engaging both the practicing manager and the academician and requires a deeper understanding of Institutional Entrepreneurship (IE) as applied to Social Entrepreneurship (SE).

    In this webinar, learn about the evolution of Ruralshores – a business process outsourcing (BPO) organization that employs youth from rural India to deliver high quality transaction processing services!

    The presenter will discuss Ruralshores as a pioneering model of rural BPO that has, so far, scaled to 17 centres spread across different Indian states, employing more than 2500 rural youths and successfully competing with other urban centric Indian BPO's.

    Involving the poor as service providers, RuralShores has the potential of transforming the Indian BPO industry by scaling itself and encouraging others to mimic its business model, thus creating livelihood for millions of rural youth.
