Biennial Conferences


Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDII) has been organizing ‘Biennial Conferences on Entrepreneurship’ since 1994. The Biennial Conferences continue to provide a forum for researchers, educationists, and practitioners to share their research findings and experience in entrepreneurship development. Deliberations on issues of contemporary relevance and interest have opened up new avenues to spearhead entrepreneurship at a much broader scale. The Conferences were organized under the aegis of the Centre for Research in Entrepreneurship Education and Development (CREED) setup by EDII. EDII has organized Fifteen Biennial Conferences during 1994-2023, the details of these biennial conferences can be browsed at
