Venture Capital, Value(s) and the Making of Entrepreneurship in Contemporary India

Gaining investment is increasingly seen as indispensable to entrepreneurial success among Indian startups. Ghosh’s presentation shows that the process of seeking capital forms a cultural site through which entrepreneurial identities are shaped. Rather than searching purely for financial value, investment decisions interweave economic, cultural, and moral values. The talk shows that the significance of personal networks, technology and performative risk-taking in creating investment potential, reifies existing forms of social and cultural capital in contemporary India.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
