The Guest Speaker, Murali Bukkapatnam talks on the importance of empowering the post-COVID-19 innovation ecosystem with regards to the lesson learned in COVID-19 pandemic focusing on accelerating a self-reliant economy. COVID-19 touched and marked every sector of the world’s economy with its maleficence, but innovations came forward as saviours for both, human lives and businesses. A lesson to take away from this is that it is essential especially for the developing nations to strengthen their innovation ecosystem thereby, enabling them to reach out and empower the rural communities with various entrepreneurial models. In post-COVID-19 innovation ecosystem is progressively transitioning towards frugality. Although research institutes are endowed with bright minds that constantly innovate, they are often shackled by the lack of funding opportunities. Since research and development is undeniably a key in accelerating a self-reliant economy, increase in public-private research collaborations are important.
