Internationalization: Focus Asia
EDITORIAL We believe CBS should step out into the world further and by further, we do not just mean more intensely; it is about time CBS moved beyond Europe and North America to Asia and other key emerging markets, where entrepreneurship is at the epicenter of business education, academic research, policy focus and corporate attention. At a time when many of our competitors in the US and Europe have already taken bold steps to establish campuses with permanent entrepreneurship faculty and dedicated entrepreneurship programs in Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai, Qatar, Shanghai, São Paulo and Istanbul, we cannot stay idle.
Over the past six months, we, at the CBS Entrepreneurship Platform, have been working with key Asian research and education environments to develop various collaborative opportunities within entrepreneurship research and education. We are glad to see the immense interest in the region to cooperate with us and are excited about the prospects.
We have already received several delegations from the region, including the distinguished directors of Robert T. Huang Entrepreneurship Center of Kyushu University (Japan), Global Entrepreneurship Center of Zhejiang University (China), and the Kyoto Research Park (Japan) and more are scheduled. We have been invited to present CBS’ Entrepreneurship-related activities at leading Asian business schools such as National University of Singapore (NUS), Chinese-European International Business School (CEIBS) in Shanghai and Singapore Management University (SMU).
We have also been actively participating in important pan-Asian entrepreneurship events such as “Social Venture Challenge Asia”, “INNOVFEST 2014– Asian Innovations Going Global” and “Lean Launchpad@NUS”. Events as such offer us tremendous learning and networking opportunities with policy makers, business founders, investors and academic entrepreneurs in the region and we are grateful to organizers for inviting us.
This is just the beginning.
We take this opportunity to invite CBS faculty and our external partners in business and policy to join us in our efforts to build CBS entrepreneurship community access to some of the most vibrant, innovative and exciting environments in the world.
