In India and around the world, the impact of the coronavirus pandemic is not limited to a few sectors but is evident across all stakeholders of the economy. Many startups and businesses which were caught off guard by the nationwide lockdown are now getting back on track with newer philosophies, government support and by adapting themselves as per the new normal environment. Support of Government towards empowering Small-Scale Businesses & Budding Entrepreneurs has been instrumental over the recent few years. The Government of India has brought various reforms at policy level and has laid strong emphasis on educating the masses through learning programmes. Institutions of higher education across the globe are playing a pivotal role in the education sector and acting as a bridge to channelize opportunities for bright and aspiring entrepreneurs. I am delighted to convey that at Amity a strong emphasis is placed on building the entrepreneurial competencies amongst the students. It has always been a frontrunner in aligning its mission of creating successful Entrepreneurs with India's economic development goals.

Amity University offers simplified, in-depth, holistic learning experience for its students conducive not only to hone their entrepreneurial skills but also to build in them emotional consciousness necessary to sustain in business environment. The revolutionary, modified course curriculum offered at Amity aims to develop an aptitude to face the challenges of the contemporary corporate world and enhance their knowledge to assess and capitalize on opportunities through innovation, resource maximization, and technology usage as per the standards of Industry 4.0.

As a part of this endeavour, the 3rd International Conference on Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Leadership (ICEIL'2020) is being organised virtually by Amity University, with the theme ‘Harnessing Innovation, Technology, Entrepreneurship and Sustainability’ from 17-19 December 2020.

This Mega event consists of concurrent panel discussions via 8 tracks, research paper presentations, Start-Ups and Stand-Ups Expositions, Lakshya- Business Plan competition, workshops, Eureka-Students Innovative Design projects competition, Case Study Competition, etc. During the 3 Day conference 300+ distinguished speakers, industry experts, Academicians, Jury members, Start-up founders and Business leaders from all over the world will participate to foster industry -academia associations, research, partnerships and promote entrepreneurial ecosystem by facilitating the mobility of experts across the channels.

I firmly believe that ICEIL'2020 will help the students to seek opportunities in the field of healthcare, agriculture, environment sciences, education, biotech, communications, Information technology, and so on. The conference will act as a perfect platform for social interaction between budding entrepreneurs and the industry leads and also provide immersive, innumerable opportunities to connect with government officials, bankers, subject experts, and successful entrepreneurs.
